Suffering an injury or illness due to a medical professional’s negligence can be devastating to you and your family. Stacks compensation lawyers are here to help.
Medical and health care professionals are some of the most trusted members of society. However, unfortunately sometimes, instances happen where there has been a lack of duty of care, and you or a loved one has suffered an illness, injury, or even death as a result. Thankfully, medical negligence laws in Australia protect you from suffering negligence or poor treatment within the medical system.
Medical negligence, also sometimes called medical malpractice or clinical negligence, is when you have not been provided with a "reasonable standard of care" in a medical facility or by medical personnel. This includes health care providers such as hospitals, doctors, dentists, nurses, chiropractors, pharmacists, psychologists and physiotherapists, among others.
Under the medical system in Australia, you are owed a duty of care, and you deserve compensation if there has been a failure to live up to this standard. Any injury resulting from carelessness is considered professional negligence on the part of the health care provider.
If you believe you have suffered, or if you have lost a loved one or family member because of the negligent actions of a medical practitioner, Stacks Law Firm compensation lawyers are here to help.
