Drew & Napier has traditionally advised parties involved in medical negligence claims. Our lawyers are regularly retained to advise, represent and negotiate in matters where patients or family members allege professional malpractice or negligence on the part of a medical practitioner, clinic, hospital or healthcare service provider.
Such claims are generally regarded as being both technically complex as well as emotionally trying. We have a tried and tested process for helping our clients evaluate the strengths and merits of their claims, in order for them to arrive at an informed decision. Often, we assist clients in arriving at a negotiated resolution of the dispute, but we have also represented clients in medical negligence actions in court.
Our team of lawyers will assist you in a wide range of situations:
- Claims brought by patients against healthcare providers such as doctors, nurses, clinics and hospitals
- Claims brought on behalf of infants, persons under disability or deceased persons for medical negligence
- Advice to and representation of healthcare providers in respect of professional negligence claims
