Joondalup Health Campus 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.

You need to know that a health professional cannot be held negligent if the individual acted in ways that were considered at the time to be widely accepted in Australia by most of the respected medical providers in the same field, regardless of the outcome and if the provider was considered to be competent. If it can be found that the majority of medical experts find the providerâ€™s actions to be incompetent, It is possible for you to sue for medical negligence.
The amount of monetary competence you receive depends on the nature and extent of your medical injuries and long term disabilities. If further treatment is required, if you need home health care or if you need domestic assistance, our Joondalup medical negligence solicitors will factor that into the calculation of your award. You may also receive compensation for loss of income or for being unable to work because of the medical negligence. You will also be awarded money for the pain and suffering that you have experienced.
If at any time you lose a family member or loved one because of questionable treatment, seek a Joondalup medical negligence solicitor's opinion as soon as you can. There may be compensation available to certain relatives of the deceased person. The solicitors at this firm will be able to provide representation at the coroner's inquests.
