Medical Negligence Claims Without The Runaround

Nobody should have to suffer at the hands of professionals we trust most. Whether you've experienced negligence from a nurse, doctor, specialist, or an organisation itself, there are many avenues through which you might be able to be compensated for your losses. 


What is the highlight of some peoples lives, unfortunately isn’t for some others. In what is meant to be one of the happiest moments in our lives, some women endure the unthinkable.

Birth trauma can come in many forms, whether as negligence arising from forcep delivery, misled pre-natal care, or c-section surgical complications. It’s a fight no person should have to face, but when they do, they don’t need to do it alone.

We proudly partner with the Australasian Birth Trauma Association in helping fight for the rights of families affected by birth trauma. 

If you’ve been a victim of prenatal or birthing negligence, you can contact us for a free claim review. 


Surgical negligence occurs when a preventable complication or error happens within an operation. 

These complications and errors need to be considered beyond the known risks of that procedure - ie. end-stage kidney disease is a known risk of a liver transplant, however a punctured stomach isn't.

When something astray happens during a surgery, whether on purpose or by the negligence of a practitioner, the patient generally faces serious consequences and a long road to recovery.

Medical misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis is one of the most common forms of medical negligence in Australia. The effects of which often results in the worsening of the underlying condition, which can prove to be fatal or cause serious harm. 

Diagnosis claims, unfortunately, aren’t as clearcut as some other types of claims and can entail greater investigative work. This is due to the subjective nature of what would’ve been considered ‘reasonable’ for another practitioner to do, as opposed to the practitioner in question. 

Regardless, thousands of Australians make complaints against practitioners every year for diagnosis negligence. If you believe you’ve been a victim of this, you can contact us for a free claim review. 


Defective medical products can be a convoluted area of negligence, generally coming under manufacturer liability rather than against the medical practitioner who recommended it. Regardless of that fact, there is still negligence involved and the opportunity to claim for compensation is as possible as in any other area.

When claiming for compensation due to a defective product, a claimant will generally make or join a class action against the manufacturer. That’s because if there is one person affected by it, there’s likely to be hundreds, if not thousands, also affected by their product. 

These products can come in the form of faulty mesh, faulty implants or artificial replacements, faulty contraceptive devices, and can even include faults in the medical equipment used by the practitioners.

If you’re concerned about the quality of a medical product that’s been used on you, you can contact us for a free claim review.

prescription errors

Prescription errors can occasionally go hand-in-hand with misdiagnosis errors, however, can also be a standalone form of negligence. 

The errors can embody incorrect medication or treatment, the incorrect dosage level, the incorrect treatment timeframe, a dangerous mixture of medications, or perhaps medication that contains a known allergen to the patient. 

These errors often result in prolonged and potentially deteriorating illnesses, aggravated symptoms, and, occasionally, introduce new illnesses.

Anaesthesia is an everyday drug used to provide temporary pain relief or induce unconsciousness of patients. It can be administered intravenously or by inhaling it through the mouth. 

Despite the everyday use and somewhat non-invasive procedure, anaesthesia administration debatably carries the highest risk in the medical profession. 

Patients are extremely vulnerable in situations where anaesthesia is needed, placing complete trust in the person administering it. Whilst highly skilled and educated, there’s still room for error and negligence. An anaesthesiologist could fail to consider past medical history, insufficient risk disclosure (failure to warn), incorrect dosage, incorrect type of anaesthesia, and much more. 

In a highly complex and convoluted area, there’s plenty of room for risk. If you think you’ve been a victim of anaesthetic negligence, you can contact us for a free claim review. 


Navigating life after medical negligence can be a difficult time for most - but it doesn't have to be. By following a tailored step-by-step plan, you can proceed with claim certainty, resting assured that you know what to do, when to do it, and how to be prepared for what comes next.
