What is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence compensation claims (also known as medical malpractice) are usually brought by medical negligence lawyers against doctors, hospitals and health care providers who have failed to adequately treat, care for or accurately diagnose a patient. A medical negligence lawyer can also find out if any compensation may also be applicable if a service provider failed to provide to the patient all relevant medical information, which may have affected the patient’s decision to either receive or refuse treatment. If you are in need of a medical negligence lawyer, Nowicki Carbone can help.

What needs to be proven?
Our medical negligence lawyers will investigate the following:

  • A lack of reasonable care in giving warnings or advice
  • A level of skill and care falling beneath what peer professional opinion would view as acceptable
  • An injury, which was a result of negligence on the part of another party

What compensation is available?
An expert medical negligence lawyer will work out the compensation relative to the injury suffered rather than relative to the other party’s degree of negligence.

Our medical negligence lawyers will find out if you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Past and future financial loss
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Personal care or nursing assistance provided by others

Examples of medical negligence include but are not limited to:

  • Failure to provide information to the patient, which would have altered his or her decision in relation to undertaking treatment
  • Error in diagnosis and prescription or in treatment
  • Failure to sterilise properly
  • Failure to properly manage a pregnancy, including prenatal testing
