Sydney Royal Hospital for Women & Negligent Treatment
The most important legal matter when considering Royal Hospital medical negligence compensation claims is the issue of whether or not the healthcare provider has been negligent. This is a matter for the law courts but in general terms the conduct of healthcare professionals working at the Royal Hospital for Women is compared to the standards achieved by other healthcare professionals in determining if a particular method of treatment is considered to be negligent. The mere fact that the chosen treatment fails whereas alternative treatment may have succeeded does not necessarily indicate negligence. If treatment is logical and is supported by a body of medical opinion it will not be determined as negligent even though it may fail.
New South Wales Time Limits & NSW Limitation
There are time limits in regards to Royal Hospital medical negligence compensation claims for personal injury. In general terms if a matter is not settled or if proceedings have not been issued in a court of law within the limitation period then the opportunity to claim compensation may have been lost forever. There are exceptions to the general rule for minors and the mentally disabled. Limitation matters can be complex legal issues and advice should always be sought from a solicitor or barrister.
