Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital Medical Negligence Compensation Claim Solicitors
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. If you have been injured as a result of a clinical accident by a healthcare professional including a doctor, dentist, nurse or technician at Bankstown Lidcombe Hospital and would like to speak to a medical negligence solicitor without further obligation, just use the helpline or send the contact form or email our offices. A medical negligence lawyer who deals exclusively in personal injury claims will speak to you, giving free advice and information on how best to preserve your legal right to receive compensation as a result of injuries caused by medical negligence at Bankstown Lidcombe Hospital.
We all know that most hospitals adhere to the best medical standards but that medical negligence can exist. An obstetrician can make a mistake in a delivery resulting in a permanently damaged infant; a nurse can provide the wrong dose of medication or the wrong medication altogether; a doctor can fail to make the correct medical diagnosis and a patient suffers an injury. If you think this may be you in these types of scenarios, contact our toll free helpline where you can get medicolegal advice as to what your rights are.
The helpline can provide you with totally free advice regarding situations involving poor medical decisions. We have tough litigators who will work on your behalf to compensate you for bad care you may have received at Bankstown Lidcombe Hospital or by one of its healthcare providers.
Medical negligence can be hard to explain. For example, if most medical providers in the same field feel that a provider's care was above standards, then no medical negligence existed regardless of the outcome. If most medical providers in the same field feel that the care was substandard for the time, then medical negligent likely existed and you may be entitled to file a medical claim for compensation.
In order to total the amount of compensation you may be due, you need to sum total the amount of pain and suffering you had, the amount of medical care costs incurred, the cost of not being able to work or advance in your career and the cost of the various disability costs you may incur, including that of home healthcare.

No Win No Fee
Our firm has a no win no fee service policy. If we work on your case and do not win the case against the Bankstown Lidcombe Hospital, you owe us nothing. This is one reason, too, why we work hard to win your case against the hospital or provider.
You have a limited amount of time in which to file your legal claim. Due to the time limit, called the statute of limitations, you need to contact the help line or drop us an email as soon as you can so that your legal claim can be established before the statute of limitations runs out. If you try to file a claim after the statute of limitations runs out, you will be denied a claim.
