Royal Prince Alfred Hospital 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.

Mistakes happen and patients suffer.

We have a helpline for those who feel they have suffered a medical/legal incident at a hospital or clinic. Speak to one of our medical negligence solicitors about your incident at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital so you can know what your legal rights might be.
The health professional involved in the incident may be considered incompetent if the majority of doctors indicate that the health professional's care fell below acceptable standards for the time. In such cases, you may be entitled to compensation because of the substandard care. If the majority of doctors in the same field feel that the provider's actions exceeded expectations, you are likely not eligible for compensation.
If the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital was considered incompetent, compensation is likely owed to you. The exact amount of compensation depends on the extent of your injuries and its impact on your life. If you miss work or are unable to advance in your career, you are owed compensation for that. You are owed compensation, too, for extra medical fees involved, for pain and suffering and for any home health assistance you may need.
