Treatment Providers Negligence
Compensation payout is made for physical and psychological injuries resulting from the negligence of healthcare professionals. This could happen during a cosmetic surgery procedure gone wrong, errors made during treatment by a chiropractor or a physiotherapist to name a few instances.
If you have endured pain and suffering and the negligent actions of a healthcare provider has directly caused or has been a contributing factor, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.
An unsatisfactory outcome of your treatment in general, won’t give you grounds for making a claim. You will have to prove that:
The healthcare professional breached their duty of care towards you
Your injury was a direct result of that breach of care.
