Compensation for Medical Negligence
In Western Australia, a person with a medical negligence claim will only be successful if they can show that they suffered an injury due to the negligence of another person, usually a doctor, nurse, medic or someone in a similar role involving surgery, medical treatment or clinical care.
The injured person will usually have to show that the person providing the medical care owed them a duty of care as a patient, which will usually not present a problem. The harder part of a medical negligence claim is showing that firstly, the medical care provider was negligent in undertaking the medical care or medical procedure, and secondly any damage to the injured person was caused by the medical negligence, rather than any other condition, including the condition for which the injured person first sought medical treatment.

What can I expect to receive in a medical negligence claim?
In a medical negligence claim any award your receive from a Judge will attempt to put you back, as far as money can do so, in the same position that you were in prior to the negligent conduct. In most medical negligence cases, this will be the position that you would be in if the surgery, or other medical procedure was properly performed.
In an award, injured people can expect to receive money for their pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, economic loss, medical treatment, gratuitous services, paid services and any medical AIDS they will need going forward.
