A medical negligence claim is a claim for NT compensation for injury caused by the negligence of a doctor, medical practitioner or hospital. It could include a dentist, midwife, nurse, or pharmacist.
There is a reasonable standard of care that must be taken when providing treatment as a health care practitioner. Failing to take reasonable care, in circumstances where the health care provider could or should have foreseen that their actions could injure you, is considered negligence. Negligence could pertain to a patient receiving below the reasonable standard of care resulting in an injury or a worsening of an existing injury.
Although we do NOT take on these cases we may still be able to advise or refer you. It is recommended you seek the advice.
