If you have suffered injury and/or loss as a result of receiving negligent medical advice and/or treatment from a medical practitioner and/or Hospital then you may be entitled to consider a claim for medical negligence against one or more of your treatment providers.
Generally, claims for medical negligence must be made within three years of the date of the negligent advice/treatment, however the sooner you provide instructions in a claim like this, the sooner an effective outcome can be achieved. Therefore don’t hesitate to contact Mark if you think you might be entitled to pursue one of these claims.
Claims under the Civil Liability Act need to be commenced within three years of the date of the accident and costs recovered from the defendant are limited in cases where the compensation awarded is under $100,000.00.
Compensation is awarded as a lump sum and can include where applicable compensation for pain and suffering (general damages), past and future economic loss, past and future medical expenses, and past and future domestic assistance (care).
These claims are always handled on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.
