Proof of Negligence
In order to establish a case in medical negligence* against either a medical practitioner, or a hospital involved in diagnosis or treatment. The individual taking the case must prove that no competent medical practitioner of equal status and skill faced with the same set of circumstances would have acted in the same manner.

The individual must also prove causation. This means that on the balance of probabilities they must show that the alleged treatment , materially contributed to the individuals injury. It must be proven that if the error had not occurred, then the injury would have been avoided.

Statute of Limitations

In the case of minors or those with an intellectual impairment time limits are extended by legislation. If in any doubt about whether your case is within the Statue of Limitations it is important that you seek legal advice immediately.
