Negligence in Nursing Compensation Lawyers

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 damages.


What is covered by medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice is when a doctor, nurse or other healthcare provider fails in their duty of care.

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


From minor complications to life-threatening illnesses, this term covers a broad range of injuries and ailments. 

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

How long do I have to claim nursing negligence? 

Time limits apply to all personal injury claims, including those involving nursing negligence.

If you think you may have received inadequate nursing care, seek legal advice immediately. The longer you delay making a claim, the less chance it will have of being successful. 


Will I need to go to court for nursing malpractice?

Most 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 lawyer may be able to attend on your behalf. 


Who pays for the nursing compensation claim?

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

We can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf to ensure you receive the full amount of damages you are entitled to.
