Medical Negligence - Claims process

Article content

Given the time periods for making a claim, the need to establish negligence and to ensure your injury meets the appropriate thresholds, we recommend you contact National Compensation Lawyers as soon as possible to understand your rights and entitlements.

At NCL we will handle the matter sympathetically and with the urgency it deserves.

The first steps include:

  • NCL will take detailed instructions as of your injuries and the circumstances in which you were injured. You will be given detailed advice at your initial appointment and the further steps in progressing your matter.
  • From the very beginning, it is important to obtain your medical records and medical reports from your treating doctor (if appropriate).
  • In most circumstances, NCL will arrange for an independent medical expert’s opinion with respect to the severity of your injuries and the circumstances of your injury.
  • Legal proceedings will be commenced for which there are a number of steps to be completed before a resolution or hearing of your matter.
  • You will be frequently informed of the progress of your case and the further steps to be taken.
