What is medical negligence?

If you have suffered harm because a medical practitioner did not provide a reasonable standard of care, you may be able to make a medical negligence claim. Unsuccessful treatment, or complications resulting from treatment, are a normal part of medical practice and will not necessarily imply negligence.


How our expertise works for you

One of the challenges in medical negligence claims is legally proving that a medical practitioner’s failure in care was the direct cause of the harm you suffered. As Tasmania’s medical negligence specialists, we have the in-depth medical knowledge necessary to assemble complex medical evidence.


What can you claim for?

Medical negligence claims may be made against hospitals, doctors, dentists, pharmacists and allied health practitioners (such as audiologists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, etc.).

Medical negligence claims may relate to misdiagnosis, surgery, emergency treatment, malpractice, medication errors, complications relating to childbirth, and consent issues, to name a few.

You may claim compensation only for the harm directly resulting from the negligence, not for all your subsequent medical problems.
