If the healthcare and medical negligence has tragically resulted in a death, a successful negligence claim may also entitle you to compensation based on your financial dependency on the person who has died or based on the services that they contributed to your household.

A successful healthcare and medical negligence claim requires an excellent understanding of the medical treatment provided, an ability to understand technical medical concepts and a thorough understanding of the law in your State.
When you are injured, it can be difficult to navigate your path to recovery and it can be tricky to know when or if you need a lawyer.
A personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the system and give you early advice ensuring that you understand the necessary steps to a successful compensation claim and that you meet any deadlines that may apply to your claim.
