Australian Doctor – Medical Negligence Solicitor Compensation Claims

Our solicitors specialise in medical negligence compensation claims against negligent doctors. If you have been injured as a result of negligent medical treatment, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible. Time limits apply to compensation claims, and it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as you become aware that you may have been injured or suffered some other harm or loss as a result of a doctor’s actions or omissions. Compensation may also be available to family members who have lost a loved one as a result of medical negligence.

For obligation-free legal advice and No Win No Fee representation, call our helpline, complete the contact form or send an email.


Doctor Duty of Care

Doctors have a duty to exercise reasonable care, skill and judgement in examining, diagnosing, treating and providing information to their patients. A breach in duty of care may result in damages being awarded to the patient. Despite the fact that the execution of a consent form specifies acknowledgement of the stated risks and complications in conjunction with a given treatment or operation, it doesn’t relieve a doctor from their responsibility of meeting the standard of care in association with such treatment or operations.

Our medical negligence lawyers have handled hundreds of compensation cases against doctors and hospitals. They can provide accurate advice on whether you should take legal action against a doctor such as a :

  • General Practitioner – GP
  • Anaesthetist
  • Cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon
  • Dermatologist
  • Emergency Medicine Physician
  • Gastroenterologist
  • Family Physician – GP
  • General Surgeon
  • Gynaecologist
  • Internal Medicine Physician
  • Neurologist
  • Neurosurgeon
  • Obstetrician
  • Oncologist
  • Ophthalmologist
  • Ophthalmic Surgeon
  • Oral Surgeon
  • Orthopaedic Surgeon
  • Pathologist
  • Paediatrician
  • Plastic Surgeon
  • Psychiatrist
  • Radiologist
  • Urologist



For a patient to succeed with a medical negligence claim it is not enough to show that there was a breach in duty of care, or that the results of the treatment were poor. They must be able to prove, on the balance of probabilities, that the doctor’s poor performance caused the unsatisfactory result. This is known as “causation”, and proving this link between the actions of the doctor and the harm a patient experiences can be one of the most difficult areas of a medical negligence claim. If a patient can prove “breach in duty of care” and “causation of damage”, the final hurdle is to assess the value of the claim or damages award.


Damages Award

Compensation is usually awarded as a lump sum, once-and-for-all payment intended to cover past, present and future expenses. The lump sum award is calculated based on loss and harm suffered and needs arising, as a result of the negligence.

A patient may be awarded compensation for :

  • Loss of income
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Medical expenses
  • Allied health care expenses
  • Equipment aides
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Attendant care
  • Domestic assistance
  • Pain and suffering

Because of the complexities involved in bringing a medical negligence case, you should seek the assistance of an experienced medical negligence lawyer who will provide a thorough assessment of liability, causation, and quantum (the value of the claim).


Medical Negligence Case Examples

Our accredited Personal Injury Specialists (medical negligence law), have extensive knowledge and experience in handling claims involving :

  • Errors in diagnosis
  • Improper procedure performance
  • Failure to supervise or monitor
  • Medication errors
  • Failure or delay by GP in referral or consultation
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Lack of informed consent
  • Failure to perform
  • Delay in performance of a procedure
  • Failure to recognise a complication of treatment
  • Failure to instruct or communicate with the patient
  • Premature discharge of a patient
  • Unnecessary treatment
  • Sexual misconduct


Misdiagnosed Conditions

One of the biggest areas of medical negligence is the misdiagnosis of medical conditions. Some of the most commonly misdiagnosed medical conditions are :

  • Heart Attack / Myocardial Infarction
  • Coronary Artherosclerosis
  • Aortic Aneurysm
  • Breast Cancer
  • Lung Cancer
  • Colon Cancer
  • Cancer of the Rectum
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Appendicitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Meningitis
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Diabetes
  • Bone Fracture
  • Back Disorders
  • Endocarditis


Death Claims

Relatives of a person who has died as a result of medical negligence may be able to make a claim for “Compensation to Relatives” for their loss of a reasonable expectation of future pecuniary benefits. Compensation may also be available for mental or nervous shock; a psychiatric illness such as major depression, anxiety disorder or adjustment disorder sustained by the deceased’s family.

Where a patient has died as a result of medical negligence, we may recommend that a report be made to the Coroner’s Court. Sometimes a report should also be made to the appropriate regulatory body such as the :

  • Health Care Complaints Commission of New South Wales
  • Health Services Commissioner of Victoria
  • Health Quality and Complaints Commission, Queensland
  • Health and Community Services Complaints Commissioner, South Australia
  • The ACT Health Services Commissioner
  • The Health and Community Services Complaints Commission, Northern Territory
  • Health Complaints Commissioner, Tasmania
  • Office of Health Review, Western Australia
  • Medical Board of Australia


Statute of Limitations

With any personal injury claim, the plaintiff has a limited time after the occurrence of the alleged negligence in which to commence legal proceedings. Many States follow the “discovery rule” for medical negligence claims. Under the discovery rule, the statute of limitation begins to run from the time the plaintiff knew or should have known of the alleged negligence, with the time limit being 3 years in many jurisdictions. Special rules may also apply to children claiming medical negligence.

It is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible to avoid losing your right to sue, as failing to bring legal action within the legal time limit, may mean your claim becomes “statute-barred”.

Call our legal team today to find out what time limit applies to your case.


Doctor Negligence Solicitor

Our legal team will assess whether your case appears to have merit, and if so, they will recommend that an investigation be conducted. An investigation of a medical negligence case usually involves the taking of a statement from the patient, review of medical and hospital records, and commissioning an independent report from a medical expert. You may have to contribute to the cost of disbursements (obtaining copies of your medical records and a medico-legal report), however you will not be asked to pay your solicitor’s professional fees. Your solicitor will not be paid their professional fees unless they are successful in obtaining compensation for you.

If you would like further information on how a No Win No Fee agreement operates, please contact our legal team today.

Workers Work Injury Compensation Claims, 1300 911 142, injury claims.#Injury #claims

Workers Injury Compensation

Workers Injury Compensation

Claims Australia is here to provide you with appropriate contacts for whatever your matter might be. So if you have had an accident at work, sustained a psychological injury from your workplace environment, been involved in a motor vehicle accident travelling to or from work, or during working hours you can be sure that you will receive the right advice through Claims Australia. If you’re not sure what your rights are then it is highly recommended that you contact Claims Australia to seek free legal advice.

Know Your Rights

When suffering an injury at work it is important to know what your rights are whether your injury is temporary, on going or permanent. The legislation differs from state to state in Australia. To find out more about your legislation contact us on 1300 911 142.

Employers always have Workers Compensation insurance

It is mandatory for all employers to take out Workers Compensation insurance to cover all staff. Workplace injuries must be reported to your employers at the time of the injury and it is also important to attend a doctor’s appointment to have the injury investigated and documented. A workplace injury can be life changing so it is very important to discuss what you options are when in this position. Workplace dangers can be avoided but in most circumstances not all risks are obvious and can be over looked, therefore, it is just as much an employee’s responsibility as it is the employers to ensure you work in a safe hazard free environment.

WorkCover pay Wages until you return to Work

WorkCover are put in place to assist the injured worker to rehabilitate and get back into the workforce. This means that WorkCover can pay your wages while you require time off work to recover, paying for approved medical expenses to assist with rehabilitation and also providing you with a suitable return to work plan to build you back up to a normal working life.

In some cases a workplace injury can be more severe, on going and even be found permanent. In this case it is best to speak to a specialist personal injury lawyer as there are further options for these types of circumstances. For these types of claims there can be STRICT LIMITATION PERIODS so call us as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights!

Types of Workers Compensation Claims

Workplace Physical Claim

These can be anything from repetitive strain, ergonomic related injuries, industrial accidents, faulty equipment, heavy lifting, fatalities at work, etc. After an injury is sustained you need to advise your employer and consult your doctor as soon as possible and have your injuries investigated. Investigations maybe some sort of scan to diagnose your injury so you can then be treated for the injury. Your doctor will need to provide you with a ‘Workers Compensation Medical Certificate’ before you can lodge the Application for Compensation claim form. You will then receive a claim number from WorkCover and they will proceed to investigate the circumstances of the injury. Once investigations are complete WorkCover will accept or decline your application. Upon acceptance WorkCover will then pay wages and arrange suitable medical treatment to assist with rehabilitation. If WorkCover reject your claim, then contact us for more information to find out how to have this decision over turned. Once WorkCover find a worker ‘Stable and Stationary’ they will look at closing your claim and expect you to return to work. It is important to seek legal advice before this stage so you understand where to go from here.

Permanent Impairment

WorkCover will request an independent doctor to provide a permanent impairment assessment before closing your case. This assessment can provide you with a ‘Notice of Assessment’. This notice will enclose a break down in percentage form your Work related impairment and there may be a ‘lump sum offer’ included with this. Once you have received a Notice of Assessment you MUST NOT SIGN this document. You need to consult a specialist personal injury lawyer about proceeding with a Common Law Claim. If you do sign this document then you will sign away your rights for compensation which you will need in the future for your injury and which is compensation that you deserve.

Common Law Claims

A Common Law Claim is the most important part of the claims process when being severely injured. This is why we say DO NOT SIGN anything before discussing your rights and options with our specialist personal injury lawyers. When WorkCover makes a lump sum offer, this offer is binding and does not take into consideration any other expenses that you will incur due to your workplace injury. A Common Law claim looks at other damages factors such as, past and future economic loss, out of pocket expenses, future medical expenses and of course pain and suffering. When you factor all these extras in, the lump sum offer provided by WorkCover just won’t cut it for you and your family in the coming years. Again to pursue this claim STRICT LIMITATION PERIODS apply and differ state to state so contact us so we can provide you with the advice to help you understand the legal system!

Why do I need it?

Your company probably has a customer master – a single list of all your customers and their details. The problem is that it is enormously time‐consuming to keep it up to date and complete because your customers move, change numbers and change other information too. It is even more likely that different parts of your organisation are keeping their own customer masters; so work is duplicated and the view is fragmented.

Subscribing to the Medpages Database gives your entire organisation a coherent view of your customers and a continuously updated database of healthcare providers in South Africa and Africa.

Instead of you doing the work of maintaining a database, our dedicated team does it. This team are in daily telephonic contact with healthcare providers updating their information, or adding new providers to the database.

In the unlikely event that you find a healthcare provider that is missing from the database, or needs updating, you let us know, and we do the rest.

You get the benefit of all these updates, by receiving regular (daily or weekly) updates from us.

    UIF claims made easier

    Uif claims

    This article was first published in the fourth-quarter 2012 edition of Personal Finance magazine.

    Quietly, behind the scenes, the Unem-ployment Insurance Fund (UIF) is developing a virtual office that will surely be welcomed by people who are unemployed, sick or pregnant.

    The online office will in future enable you to claim UIF benefits for unemployment, illness, maternity and adoption without having to visit a labour office and stand in a queue – a particularly onerous requirement for those who are sick or pregnant, have recently given birth or adopted a child, or cannot afford to travel.

    Currently, employers use an online system, known as uFiling, to register their employees, declare their wages or salaries, and pay contributions to the UIF.

    However, employees or former employees who want to claim benefits can use uFiling only to download the forms required to lodge a claim. To initiate a claim, they have to visit a labour office. This could soon be a thing of the past.

    Another welcome feature of the virtual UIF office is that your claim may be processed faster. Ron Warren, chairman of payroll company NuQ, says that, during tests of the system, he has seen claims paid in days rather than weeks as is the case with claims lodged at labour offices.

    The UIF is testing a pilot of its virtual office using data from six companies and the claims from their UIF contributors.

    At the time this article went to print, the fund was not able to say when it will be ready to launch its new service to all UIF contributors.

    Any employee who works for 24 hours or more a month – including domestic and farm workers – is required to contribute to the UIF. From October this year, employees contribute one percent of their income up to an income of R178 464 a year (or R14 872 a month) and employers contribute a further one percent of their income up to R178 464 a year.

    Unemployment benefits can be claimed if you lose your job because your employer terminated your services or your contract – you cannot claim if you resign or abscond. It is best to claim unemployment benefits as soon as possible, but you must claim within six months of losing your job.

    The period for which you can claim depends on how long you contributed to the fund, but the maximum period is 34 weeks. You also need to register with the Department of Labour as a work-seeker.

    You can claim an illness benefit if you are unable to work for 14 consecutive days or more and you are not paid, or you are paid only part of your wage or salary, while you are ill.

    Illness benefits can be claimed more than once a year for up to 34 weeks.

    You can claim maternity benefits for a maximum of 17 weeks if your employer does not pay you, or pays only a portion of your normal wage or salary, while you are on maternity leave.

    Adoption benefits are available to anyone who adopts a child under the age of two and takes unpaid leave or receives only part of their salary while caring for the child. You can claim until your benefits are exhausted or you go back to work.

    The key to the success of the virtual UIF office will be obtaining buy-in from employers.

    You will be able to claim your UIF benefits online only if your employer has registered for uFiling and is accredited as an employer with the UIF fund.

    In August, employers using uFiling were sent a letter asking them to complete a form so they can be accredited to use the virtual office.

    Over 1.4 million employers are registered with the UIF but just over 3 000 had been accredited by mid-September, UIF spokesperson Muzi Mkhwanazi says.

    The form for accreditation sent to employers of domestic workers requests the most basic information and a signature.

    If an employer is not registered for uFiling, it must not only apply for accreditation but also register for uFiling.

    Many employers of domestic workers and small business owners use uFiling to upload the personal details of employees, and to file monthly declarations of what their employees earn and the UIF contributions that have been deducted.

    After making the declaration, employers can make their UIF payment online.

    Large companies submit their declarations for hundreds or thousands of employees by sending the UIF an extract of their payrolls, which the UIF uploads electronically. These employers will continue to do this once the virtual office goes live, but it is envisaged that the file will be uploaded via uFiling.

    Large employers will be able to register on uFiling to submit ad hoc declarations, such as terminations or employees taking maternity leave, before month- end, when the payroll file is submitted to the UIF.

    Once the claims side of the virtual office is ready to be rolled out, the employees of an employer accredited with the UIF will be able to register on the uFiling website (

    You, as an employee, will need your identity number, your banking details and your email address to complete the registration process.

    Once you have registered as a user, you will be able to lodge a claim for benefits. The UIF will notify your employer or former employer if you claim.

    UIF claimants will receive a unique reference number when they lodge a claim, and they will be able to use this number to track their claims.

    Your employer will then be expected to do its part on uFiling. For example, if an employer has retrenched you, it must complete a UI-19 form stating that your employment has been terminated.

    If an employer fails to submit a UI-19 and an employee’s employment history is not updated, the fund will attempt to contact the employer and urge it to furnish the fund with the outstanding

    UI-19. If the employer is a uFiler but not accredited, a UI-19 will be sent via uFiling for it to complete.

    If the employer does not comply with the request to complete the UI-19 declaration, the Department of Labour will send inspection and enforcement officials to the employer.

    If you are claiming an illness, a maternity or an adoption benefit, you will have to submit certain documents – for example, a doctor’s certificate stating that you are ill or pregnant, or confirmation from a court that you have adopted a child.

    The UIF will send you a request for the relevant document via email. This must then be completed and faxed back to the number indicated on the form.

    Once the virtual UIF office has received the required details from both you and your employer, your claim will be processed and the benefits due to you will be paid into your bank account.

    Mkhwanazi says death benefits for the dependants of UIF contributors cannot, at this stage, be claimed online, but the virtual office may later expand to include such claims.

    Dependants must claim within six months of the UIF contributor dying, and the benefits are available for 34 weeks.

    To prevent fraud, employers will be encouraged to register new employees as soon as they are employed and immediately complete the necessary online declarations when someone is dismissed. The quicker these forms are completed, the less chance there is for fraud, Mkhwanazi says.

    The UIF declined to answer questions about how it will prevent fraudulent claims once the virtual office has been launched. It said a response might alert potential fraudsters to the security measures that have been built into the system.

    UIF benefits are based on a formula that takes into account the period for which you were employed and contributed to the fund and the income you earned at the time you became unemployed, or, in the case of maternity benefits, went on maternity leave.

    In the case of dependant benefits, the income the family breadwinner was earning when he or she died is taken into consideration.

    You earn credits based on the length of time you have been employed and have contributed to the fund. For every six calendar days for which you are employed, you earn one day’s credit, up to 238 days.

    You will have to be employed for a total of four years to build up the maximum number of credits, which are based on calendar days and not the actual days you worked. If you have been employed for less than four years, you can still claim from the UIF, but you will qualify for benefits only up to the number of days’ credit you have accumulated.

    The rate at which benefits are paid to you depends on your income. The lowest-paid workers receive benefits at a rate of 60 percent of their income, whereas higher-paid workers receive a lower percentage.

    From October 1 this year, if you earn R178 464 a year, or R14 872 a month, or R3 432 a week, you will receive benefits of only 38 percent of your income. Anyone who earns more than these amounts will also receive benefits based on 38 percent of R178 464 a year, or R14 872 a month, or R3 432 a week.

    The rate at which benefits are paid is unlikely to change once the virtual office is introduced, but receiving the money quicker is likely to be worth a lot to many.
