What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice involves a medical practitioner breaching their duty of care to you by causing you foreseeable harm through a medical event (like surgery or procedure). 

Medical malpractice is an extremely complex area of personal injury law, as insurance agencies will often try to prove that your disability or condition was pre-existing, rather than being caused by the specific medical malpractice event.

Common areas that experience medical malpractice include:

  • Obstetrics
  • Paediatrics
  • Gynaecology
  • Emergency medicine
  • Surgery
  • Orthopaedics
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis 
  • Drugs and drug reactions
  • Cosmetic surgery
