Supporting medical professionals and facilities
Insurance claims around medical malpractice and professional negligence are highly sensitive and hugely complicated.
We work with insureds, insurers, MDOs, underwriting agencies, cover holders and brokers—not just in Australia, but around the world, including from the Lloyd’s markets—and support them in complex health class actions, especially when cases involve assisted reproductive technology, surrogacy and discrimination.
We defend litigated medical negligence claims in the District and Supreme Courts against registered health practitioners, private and public hospitals, allied health and other medical service providers.
We represent health professionals and facilities in regulatory and disciplinary hearings and coronial investigations and regularly represent registered health practitioners in state and federal regulatory investigations as well as Medicare and HICAPS audits. Medical and dental practitioners and medical facilities trust us to represent them in AHPRA investigations and before the Health Care Complaints Commission, NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal, the Medical Board and the Dental Board.
We also advise "persons of interest” in coronial proceedings about medical and nursing care as well as deal with health facility coverage issues, medical product liability and clinical trials.
