The most important item to consider in a John Hunter Hospital personal injury compensation claim is whether or not the treatment was negligent. This is a matter that will be determined by a court of law. Medical negligence is determined by comparing the treatment offered by the healthcare professionals at the John Hunter Hospital with the standards administered by other healthcare professionals. Failure of treatment does not always imply negligence even though alternative treatment may have succeeded provided that the failed treatment was logical and was supported by a substantial body of other health care professionals.
Limitation & Time Limits
John Hunter Hospital medical negligence compensation claims are subject to time limits known as the â€˜limitation periodâ€™. Failure to abide by the time limits may mean that the opportunity to claim compensation is lost forever. In general terms a medical negligence compensation claim must either be settled or legal proceedings must have been issued in a court of law within the limitation period. There are exceptions to the general rule for the mentally disabled and for minors. Legal issues are complex and it is essential that you receive advice from a solicitor at the first possible opportunity.
