Negligence in nursing

Nursing negligence compensation lawyers in Brisbane, Gold Coast and all of QLD

Negligence in nursing refers to failures and delays in medical care causing adverse outcomes for the patient.

If you have sustained an injury due to the negligent actions of nursing staff, you may be entitled to claim for damages.

Any negative impact on a person’s physical and emotional condition resulting from substandard healthcare can be referred to as medical malpractice and injury claims sought.

It’s important to note that medical malpractice is not the same thing as failed medical treatment.

Most injury claims involving nursing malpractice can be settled out of court. However, if a settlement can’t be reached, you may need to attend court in support of your case.

This will usually only happen if your presence is deemed vital to the outcome of your claim.

Even if you are called on to provide testimony in court, your compensation lawyer may be able to attend on your behalf.

Under Australian law, all medical practitioners must have some form of malpractice insurance. Therefore, if a nurse is found to have failed in their duty of care, their insurer will pay for your compensation.

Our experienced compensation lawyers in Brisbane and Gold Coast can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf to ensure you receive the full amount of damages you are entitled to.
