Medical Law Specialty Areas 

We are experienced in many areas relating to medical law, and can assist clients in the following specialised areas: 

  • Medical negligence and malpractice: We represent those who have been affected by medical negligence, handling settlement negotiations and compensation so that our clients can access their rights. Medical negligence includes, for example operating on the wrong body part, administering too much medication to a patient or making anesthesia mistakes. These errors can lead to long-term suffering and even death. 
  • Misdiagnosis: Misdiagnosis can cause great harm, especially if it leads to patients not getting the correct medication or treatment plan. Misdiagnosis delays proper treatment and can lead to injury or even death. For example, if a doctor misdiagnoses a patient with back problems rather than bone cancer, they might miss out on critical life-saving care. 
  • Hospital negligence: Hospitals and clinics must also be held to account in cases of negligence. Hospital negligence might include limited staff capacity leading to oversights, unsanitary conditions that lead to injury, or a lack of proper training resulting in sub-par patient care. 

Litigation can result in various types of compensation and cover associated medical costs, lost income, care costs, loss of life expectancy, pain and suffering, and ongoing medical care needs.
