We Specialise In Hospital Negligence Compensation Claims

When seeking medical care, we place our trust in hospitals and their staff to provide us with competent and compassionate treatment. However, there are unfortunate instances where hospitals fail to meet the expected standard of care, resulting in harm and injury to patients. If you or a loved one have suffered due to hospital negligence, Garling & Co Lawyers are here to assist you in pursuing a claim for compensation. 

 

Hospital Negligence occurs when a healthcare facility or its employees fail to provide an acceptable standard of care, resulting in harm to a patient. The consequences of such negligence can be devastating, both physically and emotionally.

 

Hospitals play a crucial role in our healthcare system, and their negligence can have severe consequences. From misdiagnoses to delayed treatment, failure to follow up on test results, or prescribing the wrong medication, various types of hospital negligence can lead to worsened health outcomes and unnecessary suffering.

My last stage of Workers compensation claim was managed by Emma Perkins, Natasha Stojanovic, Rebecca Dunshea and Kelli Robinson at Garling and Co. Lawyers who went the extra mile with their service... from the beginning to the end of 3 years of my case. I have become very anxious with almost everything after a workplace injury and a lot of times I probably ask more questions than I need to, but Emma Perkins always finds clear answers to my questions in a short time and explains to me patiently even using her mealtime or between her meeting and make me feel that I have been very well take care and supported. I am so grateful and extremely satisfied. The excellent service, attitude, and culture of Metthew Garling and his team are second to none with a very high success rate. If you going to battle with your workplace injury for a short or long period, you are better off with Garling and Co. lawyers who are able back you up every step of the way. I strongly recommend it to anybody who needs their service like me. Julieread more

Work cover fund is GOVT’S money but insurer think that it is from their 14th generation. So only they can have it. Not only that, people from the work, IME doctor from insurer, back to work... coordinator from work, Rehab provider from any side push the worker as hard as possible that the worker (doesn’t matter how the workers mental or psychical condition) either go back to his pre injury duty or leave the job.More over on that very bumpy any difficult journey some of them only treat the worker as a MONEY MAKING MECHINE .in some point worker feels like, no rooms to breath. On that moment need someone to support legally, someone to care, someone to relive.On my case I believe that, somehow, I manage to make my God happy. That’s why God sends me to Matthew Gerling and his team Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, and all of GARLING & co Lawyers.I am not good enough in English, can’t express my gratitude.Matthew, Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, please accept my appreciation and pass it to others.read more

Hospital Negligence Frequently Asked Questions

1. How long do I have to make a hospital malpractice claim?

Ordinarily, you must commence formal legal proceedings within three years of the time at which the alleged negligence occurred. This is subject to the time that you discovered, or ought to have discovered, that you have sustained an injury, the injury is the fault of the hospital, and the injury is worth suing over.

2. How much can you sue a hospital for negligence?

If you succeed in proving negligence, you would be entitled to compensation. Compensation may include pain and suffering, the cost of personal care and domestic assistance, medical and allied health treatment costs, and any lost earnings. The value of your claim would depend on the nature, extent and severity of your injuries and any losses you may have suffered.

3. How to prove hospital negligence?

To prove negligence against a hospital, you must be able to prove that the hospital, by its employees, servants, or agents, breached its duty of care by failing to provide you with reasonable care and that this failure was a necessary condition of you sustaining harm for which you could be compensated. Expert evidence is required in support of the allegation that you were not provided with reasonable care and to connect your injuries to the alleged negligence.

4. Is it hard to sue a hospital for negligence?

Expert evidence is required in support of the allegations of negligence against a hospital and to connect your injuries to the alleged negligence. It might be difficult to prove negligence in some instances, but the merits of each case must be assessed based on the individual and specific circumstances of each case, regardless of whether the claim is against a hospital or not. Expert evidence allows the legal team to assess the merits of a claim and prospects of success.

5. What is considered hospital negligence?

Hospital negligence refers to a failure to provide a patient with reasonable care while a patient is under the care of that hospital, thereby resulting in injury or a poor health outcome for the patient.
