According to the World Health Organisation the highest incidence of medical negligence in the developed world occurs in Australia. More than 18,000 people die every year as a result of preventable errors in Australian hospitals and clinics which represents a figure of about 50 fatalities every single day. In addition over 50,000 people suffer from permanent injury every year due to hospital malpractice and a further 80,000 individuals are hospitalised annually as a result of clinical errors. Only a small minority of the victims of medical negligence make a claim for compensation for personal injury.

You will be able to speak to one of them about your injury at the Alice Springs Hospital. You need to know what your legal rights are.
When an injury happens, the health professional is considered to be competent if the majority of health professionals in the field believe that the actions during the incident were medically acceptable. In such a situation, the provider will be listed as medically competent. If the majority of health professionals feel that, at the time, the provider's actions were incompetent, then you might be eligible for compensation because of the medical providerâ€™s mistakes.
If incompetence exists in your case, you are probably able to get compensation. The amount awarded to you depends on the degree of pain and suffering you underwent, the amount of time you missed work because of the event, the lack of advancement in your work because of the incident, and your inability to get around or your need for home health care following the incident.
