Medical negligence claims are often referred to as the most difficult of all personal injury claims to prosecute on behalf of clients. This is because when suing a doctor or a hospital there are matters of professional reputation at stake and these cases will be usually defended more vigorously than say a motor accident or a public liability claim. Furthermore, the standard of proof in establishing negligence on the part of a doctor or hospital is determined differently to the standard applied in a motor accident or public liability claim. In a medical negligence case the court must be satisfied, in order to establish negligence, that the doctor or hospital had failed in his or its duty of care as determined by reference to peer professional opinion.

Brydens Lawyers are the experts in the prosecution of medical negligence cases with a dedicated medical negligence department and panel of medical experts available to give evidence in court against doctors, hospitals or other health care practitioners who have been negligent in the treatment of their patients.

Brydens Lawyers specialise in reviewing medical records, liaising with medical experts and explaining complicated legal and medical issues to our clients in a way that they will understand. This is to ensure that clients of Brydens Lawyers are kept fully and properly informed every step of the way so that they can understand the process and what is involved in the bringing of a successful medical negligence claim.

One area of expertise for Brydens Lawyers is in birth trauma, perhaps the most difficult and no doubt the most emotionally confronting of all personal injury actions. Such cases include allegations of mismanagement of labour and/or delivery which results in the birth of babies suffering either physical or mental disability which could have been avoided. Such matters demand the expertise provided by Brydens Lawyers in ensuring that all the relevant evidentiary material is available to establish the entitlement to compensation and then to ensure that the level of compensation is sufficient to adequately care for the child and/or the family for the rest of their lives.

If you have any cause for complaint with respect to treatment provided by a doctor or a hospital then for a free and confidential consultation contact Brydens Lawyers on 1800 848 848 or at info@brydens.com.au . One of our medical negligence experts will be available to assist in considering the circumstances of your case and advising as to whether a claim may be available.

For over 40 years Brydens Lawyers have been the experts in the bringing of medical negligence claims on behalf of their clients to recover proper compensation for injuries or damage arising from negligent treatment.

For over 40 years now Brydens Lawyers has been operating a ‘No Win – No Fee”, policy which, simply put, provides that if a personal injury or compensation client is unsuccessful in their claim then Brydens Lawyers will not raise a tax invoice for having acted on behalf of the client. That is, if the claim is unsuccessful we do not get paid. More information about how this works can be found on our No Win – No Fee page.
