Definition of Clinical Negligence
Just because a particular treatment fails, it does not mean that a doctor has been negligent. Provided that the treatment is supported by a substantial body of the medical profession and that the treatment is logical there will not usually be a finding of medical negligence against Canberra Hospital even though an alternative treatment may have succeeded. Proving medical negligence is not easy and even after showing the existence of negligence it is then necessary to show that the negligence is the cause of the injury which may be difficult in consideration of the fact that the victim was already ill before the negligent treatment.
All ACT personal injury compensation claims are governed by time limits and it is important for a potential claimant to take legal advice as soon as possible after the event that is to be investigated for negligence. Failure to settle a claim or issue proceedings within the limitation period may mean that the opportunity to claim compensation is lost forever. Limitation issues can be complex legal matters and it is in your interest to take legal advice as soon as possible.
