In the absence of agreement between the parties the matter of negligence is determined by comparing the conduct of the treating healthcare professionals at Geelong Hospital with other reasonably competent healthcare professionals The fact that one treatment fails whilst another may have succeeded does not usually imply negligence provided that the failed treatment was logical and was supported by a substantial body of medical opinion.
Limitation & Time Limits
There are time limits in personal injury compensation claims known as the limitation period. A Geelong Hospital medical negligence compensation claim must be either settled or legal proceedings must have been issued in a court of law before the expiry of the limitation period failing which the opportunity to claim compensation may have been lost forever. This rule has an exception for those who are mentally disabled and those who are minors under the age of 18 years. The limitation period is an important matter and legal advice should be sought from a solicitor as soon as possible after the negligent conduct which is the subject of a potential Geelong Hospital medical negligence compensation claim.
