Medical Negligence Situations.
It’s impossible to say with 100% confidence that a particular act or omission of a medical practitioner will give rise to a successful medical negligence claim. It’s just way too complex and varied.
That said, although medical negligence in Australia is determined on a case-by-case basis, there are a number of common categories of medical negligence (e.g. misdiagnosis, surgical error, failure to warn, etc.) and common situations such as: Anaesthetic awareness, Birth Injuries, Blood Transfusions, Brain Injury , Cancer Misdiagnosis, Cosmetic Surgery, Dental Care, Hospital Infections, Orthopaedic Treatment, Prescription Errors, Spinal Injuries and Wrongful Birth.
It must be noted that the above list of situations is non-exhaustive, not does it mean that your situation (if similar) will amount to a successful medical negligence claim.
