- The medical practice or practitioner’s treatment did not meet Australian standards
The amount of time it takes to resolve a medical negligence compensation claim through LHD Lawyers in Australia can vary depending on a number of factors, including the complexity of your case, the severity of your injuries, and the willingness of the other party to negotiate a settlement.
Medical negligence claims can be complex and involve extensive investigations and medical assessments to establish liability and quantify damages. As a result, the process of securing compensation can take several months or even years to complete.
At LHD Lawyers, we understand that this can be a frustrating and stressful time for our clients, which is why we work hard to resolve your claim as efficiently and effectively as possible. We will keep you informed throughout the process and provide regular updates on the progress of your claim.
In some cases, it may be possible to negotiate a settlement out of court, which can help to expedite the process and avoid the need for a lengthy court battle. However, if a settlement cannot be reached, we will be prepared to take your case to court to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Overall, the length of time it takes to resolve a medical negligence compensation claim can vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case, but we will do everything we can to ensure that your claim is resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Yes, there are time limits for lodging a medical negligence claim for compensation in Australia. The time limit, also known as the statute of limitations, can vary depending on the state or territory in which the alleged medical negligence occurred.
In most states and territories, the time limit for lodging a medical negligence claim is three years from the date of the injury or from the date when the injury was first discovered. This means that you must lodge your claim within this time period, or you may lose your right to pursue compensation.
However, there are some exceptions to this rule, such as for minors who may have a longer time period to lodge a claim or for cases where the injury was not immediately apparent. It’s important to seek legal advice as soon as possible if you believe you have a medical negligence claim.
At LHD Lawyers, we can provide you with expert legal advice and guide you through the process of lodging a medical negligence claim within the required time limits. It’s important to act quickly to ensure that your rights are protected and that you have the best chance of securing the compensation you deserve.
