Suffering injury as a result of the negligent care of a trusted health professional can have a considerable impact on you and your family.
Health professionals have a duty of care to their patients to exercise reasonable care, skill and judgement. If that duty is breached, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries and loss.
Health professionals include those listed below. However, this is not an exhaustive list.
- Doctors (general practitioners)
If you have suffered an injury which you believe has been caused by negligent treatment on the part of a health care provider, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injury.
Even if you cannot prove fault on the part of another party, you may be entitled to make a claim for total and permanent disability [hyperlink to Qld version of TPD page], which is made against your superannuation fund.
It is important that you seek early legal advice regarding your potential entitlement to compensation. A medical negligence lawyer from Stacks Law Firm can help you by explaining how the law operates in Queensland and what your potential entitlements may be.
