If you’ve been injured through your healthcare provider’s negligence you may be entitled to compensation.
Healthcare providers have a duty of care to any person they treat. If Healthcare providers are found to have breached that duty of care, they are liable for the damages that the victim suffered.
A claim for medical negligence in Queensland is brought under the Personal Injuries Proceedings Act 2002. his in essence, allows a person to be compensated for damages including (but not limited to):
- Pain and Suffering
- Medical expenses (past and into the future);
- Past Economic Loss;
- Future Economic Loss;
- Legal costs;
- Care costs.
Please note that compensation claims require a number of considerations and it is important that you seek legal advice urgently so you know what to do moving forward. A failure to comply with time frames amongst other things can be fatal to your claim.
