ADELAIDE MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE SOLICITORS - COMPENSATION CLAIMS

HELPLINE: ☎ 1800 633634

Medical negligence law in Australia is dependent on location. Prior to 2014 medical negligence compensation claims in Adelaide and South Australia were treated in a similar way to other personal injury claims. In most other national and international jurisdictions there are distinct protocols for medical negligence solicitors who deal with applications to a court of law for damages as a result of clinical errors. The introduction of the Supreme Court Fast Track Rules 2014 applicable in Adelaide and South Australia changed how Adelaide medical negligence solicitors deal with a compensation claim in so far as there are now protocols in place that are quite separate and different to the protocols applied to general personal injury compensation claims. This change in the rules known as pre-action protocols sets out steps that Adelaide medical negligence solicitors are required to complete prior to the issue of proceedings in in the Adelaide court.

The current protocols require Adelaide medical negligence solicitors to send written notice of the intention to claim compensation. The letter which mainly focuses on liability must include 11 separate pieces of information which must be collected prior to the action starting. The initial letter of claim need not include any financial calculation of the estimated value of the claim. The intention of the letter is to put the allegedly negligent healthcare practitioner on notice and to allow time for the collection of evidence to refute the claim if appropriate. If liability is to be denied the defendant or more likely his solicitors must advise the claimants lawyers. At this point the parties thereafter usually agree on how the claim can proceed to trial in the Adelaide court if agreement cannot be reached which is rare in a medical negligence compensation claim.
