QLD Medical Negligence Lawyers
Have you suffered a long-term injury as a result of medical negligence?
Medical negligence, also known as medical malpractice, is a term used to describe an incident where a medical professional has caused harm or injury to a patient while under their care. These cases can sometimes be hard to prove as some illnesses and injuries cannot be treated even with the best medical care.
Our expert medical negligence lawyers are dedicated to helping you win the maximum compensation possible while helping you get your life back on track.

How to Raise a Medical Compensation Claim
The window to lodge a medical negligence claim isn’t very wide so make sure you speak to one of our expert medical negligence lawyers as soon as possible. To ensure your compensation claim can go ahead we will need to be able to prove that:

- A medical specialist can confirm in writing their reasons for this; and
- As a result of the failure, you suffered personal injury
