Medical Negligence


In South Africa, medical negligence law is designed to protect patients who have been harmed due to the carelessness or mistakes of healthcare professionals. When a patient believes they have suffered because of medical negligence, they can file a claim for compensation. Here's how it works in a simple and friendly way:

Identify the Negligence: The first step is to determine if there was negligence. This means proving that the healthcare provider did not act with the level of skill and care expected in their field.

Gather Evidence: The patient (now called the plaintiff) needs to gather all medical records, expert opinions, and any other evidence that shows how the negligence occurred and the harm it caused.

Consult a Lawyer: It's important to consult with a lawyer who specializes in medical negligence. They can provide guidance on the strength of the case and the next steps.

File a Claim: The lawyer will help the patient file a claim in court. This legal document outlines the allegations and the compensation being sought.

Court Proceedings: The case may go to trial if it's not settled out of court. Both sides will present evidence and witnesses, and a judge will decide if there was negligence and what compensation should be awarded.

Compensation: If the court finds in favour of the patient, they may receive compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other related costs.

This process ensures that patients have a way to seek justice and compensation when they are harmed by medical errors.
