How is medical negligence compensation calculated?

If the medical negligence claim is successful, the compensation amount that will be awarded is calculated by looking at things such as the level of harm caused and recovery time, if recovery is possible at all.

A patient may also receive special damages that will cover the costs of things such as ongoing care, assistive technologies and loss of earnings.

The more significant the harm and the extent to which special damages are required, the higher the level that the compensation will be. Expert reports serving as evidence assist in determining the precise amount of compensation sought.

Interim payments for medical negligence

If immediate financial assistance is required to cover expenses like medical treatment and rehabilitation, interim payments may be obtained early or during the claim process, enabling the patient to access necessary support more quickly.
