Campbelltown 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 Campbelltown 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.

Even though it's true that most hospitals have the best of medical standards most of the time, medical errors can still occur. An obstetrician can err in an infant delivery, causing permanent damage to the child; a doctor can make the wrong diagnosis, resulting in injury to the patient; a nurse can perform a procedure in an inappropriate way or can give the wrong medication. These cases of medical negligence can happen to you. If you think you were the victim of medical negligence at Campbelltown Hospital, speak to someone at our free medicolegal helpline to get the advice you really need.
The advice at our help line is totally free and can advise you on all matters related to medical decisions. We employ hardworking solicitors that will work with you to decide if you have a legal claim against the Campbelltown Hospital or one of its providers. You could be owed compensation for care you received that resulted in an injury.
It can be difficult to explain medical negligence. If the majority of healthcare providers in the same field feel that the care you received was substandard for the time, medical negligence is likely to have occurred and you might be owed financial compensation. On the other hand, if the majority of healthcare providers in the same field feel that the care you received exceeded or met medical standards, you will likely not be eligible for financial compensation.
For the solicitor to tally the amount of compensation you're due, he or she needs to know the amount of pain and suffering you had, whether you lost work, if you can advance in your career since the injury, your medical costs and the costs of taking care of you now that you are disabled. Some of these costs may need to be estimated based on the information you give.
