Whether or not a healthcare provider at the Flinders Medical Centre has been negligent is a matter for a court of law. Negligence is determined by comparing the treatment offered by the Flinders Medical Centre with treatment carried out by a reasonably competent hospital. It is worth noting that the mere fact that treatment fails does not indicate medical negligence even though alternative treatment may have succeeded provided that the failed treatment was logical and is supported by a substantial body of medical opinion.
Limitation and Time Limits
There are time limits for all personal injury compensation claims and medical negligence is no exception. A Flinders Medical Centre compensation claim must either be settled or a summons must be issued by a court of law prior to the expiration of the limitation period or the opportunity to claim compensation may be lost. There are some exceptions to this general rule including minors and the mentally disabled. Time limits are usually strict and you should seek qualified legal advice as soon as possible after the event that caused the injury. Leaving a compensation claim to the last minute is not sensible as the preparatory stages take time and most lawyers will refuse to deal with a case that is tight up to the expiration of the limitation period.
