Was your illness or injury misdiagnosed by a medical practitioner?
Did a medical practitioner make an error during surgery that left you with an injury?
Have you acquired an illness or injury due to a faulty medical device or non-sterile surgical equipment?
Were you administered an incorrect dosage of medication or anaesthetic?
Did a medical practitioner fail to properly treat your illness or injury?
Were you or your baby injured during pregnancy or childbirth?

When we are under the care of a medical practitioner (e.g., doctor, nurse, psychiatrist, or dentist) or allied health professional (e.g., physiotherapists, chiropractors, psychologists), we depend on them to make decisions and take actions that enhance our health – not cause harm. We place a great deal of trust in our health professionals, and we expect them to be skilled and capable.

When doctors, nurses, dentists, and other practitioners fail in their duty of care, patients are at risk of sustaining injuries, illness, and disabilities. In addition, existing illnesses or injuries may fail to improve or may worsen. Unfortunately, medical negligence or malpractice can have a debilitating effect on your quality of life; physically, psychologically, and financially. It may be that you are no longer able to work or participate in the activities you once enjoyed. It may be that you have incurred additional medical costs, or you have had to rely on day-to-day assistance (e.g., in-home care, house-cleaning services, travel support).

Malpractice in Cosmetic or Plastic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery malpractice occurs when a cosmetic or plastic surgeon fails to uphold their duty to exercise reasonable care and skill, and as a result of their failure to uphold this duty, a patient sustains a ‘botched’ surgical procedure.

While not all surgical repercussions may constitute grounds to bring about legal action, if you have sustained any form of injury, illness or disability as a result of a cosmetic or plastic surgeon, it is important you speak with a medical negligence specialist at Wyatts today.

Even if you are unsure of whether you may be entitled to claim compensation and have sustained some form of negative implication due to suspected medical negligence, speak with our medical negligence team today. This will help you determine whether you may be eligible to make a medical negligence claim.

When a medical practitioner or health professional causes harm because they are careless – failing to meet their duty of care – their actions may be medically negligent.

Proving medical negligence is complex and challenging, and expertise in medical compensation law is essential. Wyatts have the skills, knowledge, and dedication to pursue a successful medical negligence claim. Please contact us today to talk with one of our highly qualified team.

Claims can be made against medical practitioners, nurses and midwives, and allied health professionals.

Legally qualified medical practitioners include general practitioners, general surgeons, medical specialists, psychiatrists, and dentists. They are responsible for the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of illness and injury. They are required to appropriately refer patients for specialist treatment and to assess patients to determine if they are capable of working. Due to negligence and malpractice, medical practitioners can breach their duty of care across all aspects of their role.

Nurses, midwives, and allied health professions can also make errors that result in injury, illness, and disability. This situation can also give rise to a negligence action.

Allied health professionals include, but are not limited to, physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, podiatrists, occupational therapists, social workers, psychologists, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners, pharmacists, optometrists, medical radiation practitioners, and Chinese medicine practitioners.

If you are uncertain as to whether you have been the victim of medical negligence or malpractice, please
contact us for a thorough and attentive consultation.

Provided the actions of the medical practitioner or health professional were negligent, medical negligence compensation can be awarded for:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of an injury or illness
  • Failure to treat an injury, illness, or disability
  • Failure to warn a patient about the effects of an injury or illness
  • Failure to provide a referral to a specialist
  • Inappropriate dosage or use of medication, or incorrect use of anaesthetic
  • Surgical errors
  • Negligent post-operative care
  • Faulty technology, products, or equipment, including non-sterile surgical tools
  • Errors involving pregnancy and childbirth
  • Errors in paediatric care (i.e. infants and children)
  • Failure to correctly warn of risks associated with treatment (e.g., drug interactions and side effects)
  • Failure to obtain informed consent (e.g., patient received treatment without their agreement or without receiving full information)

If any of these unfortunate events occurred to you or your loved one, Wyatts offers a compassionate and attentive service to assist you in obtaining the compensation you deserve. If you are uncertain as to whether you are eligible to claim compensation for medical negligence, please contact us for a thorough consultation.

In most circumstances, you have three years from the date at which you became aware of the negligence in which to commence your medical negligence claim. There are instances in which a claim can be made outside this 3-year period. Given the complexity of medical negligence cases, we advise that you act as soon as you become aware of the harm caused.

If you believe that you have been the victim of medical negligence, please contact us for a thorough consultation. We provide personalised, attentive, and compassionate service to help you achieve the compensation you deserve.

While medical procedures have risks, signing a waiver does not mean that a medical professional is exempt from acting with negligence. If negligence results in severe injury or sickness, there can be grounds for a medical negligence claim. Therefore, it’s important to understand your rights. Our experts in medical negligence can support you in this process.
