Medical negligence compensation claims can be complex legal cases. The first aspect that must be considered relates to whether or not Box Hill Hospital has been negligent. If the alleged negligence is not admitted by the health care provider, the final decision will be made by a court of law. In order for the courts to make a decision they will compare the treatment given by the healthcare professionals at the Box Hill Hospital to the standard of other reasonably competent healthcare professionals elsewhere. The fact that one type of treatment failed whereas another may have succeeded does not necessarily imply negligence provided that the failed procedures were logical and were supported by a substantial body of other medical practitioners.
There are time limits applicable to all personal injury claims. If you have a viable Box Hill Hospital medical negligence compensation claim you must either settle the claim or you must begin proceedings in a civil court during the time frame outlined by law. Should you not issue proceedings in a court of law during this time you will almost certainly loose the opportunity to claim compensation forever. There are exceptions for minors and the mentally disabled. Bearing in mind time limits you should make contact with a solicitor to receive advice as soon as possible after the event that caused the personal injury.
