Australia’s health industry is among the best in the world and includes state of the art facilities, cutting edge equipment and progressive medical science. Our doctors, surgeons, dentists and allied health professionals undertake stringent training for many years prior to commencing practice, followed by continued progression in their chosen medical field. The downside of such large enterprises is the potential for mistakes, particularly when your health is overseen by various professionals, nursing staff and other hospital employees who need to accurately convey information.
A medical misdiagnosis will result in a delay in receiving appropriate medical treatment. In cases where medical conditions require urgent attention, the delay caused by medical misdiagnosis can cause negative long-term results or even death. Medical misdiagnosis happens all too often, and people affected by medical negligence have every right to claim compensation for their loss or suffering. Medical negligence claims can quickly turn into a minefield of obstacles, especially if the claim is disputed by powerful medical industry representatives, and legal recourse using the best medical negligence lawyers is strongly advised.
The first step is to consult with a medical negligence lawyer at Taylor & Scott. Every case is different, requiring expert assistance and careful investigation prior to making a claim, but there are some steps you can take to assist. Your claim rests on proving medical misdiagnosis, so the more information we have to work with the stronger your case will become. Any information related to your medical misdiagnosis, even that which is seemingly trivial, irrelevant or embarrassing, can be helpful and should be noted down. If misdiagnosis results in practice medical outcomes, it’s worth answering some simple questions, including:
Your medical misdiagnosis claim can be supported by statements from medical professionals, medical bodies, nursing staff and other allied health professionals, even if they are the ones responsible for the medical negligence that has affected your treatment outcomes.
There are a lot of factors taken into consideration for a medical negligence claim. The impact of negligence can have over-reaching effects on yourself, your family, your work, quality of life and social activities, so assessing the big picture is all part of our strategy in maximising your claim’s potential. Your compensation claim outcomes will be based on the evidence provided, and we are in the business of creating a persuasive compensation claim document with the best chance of winnable outcomes.
