Eligibility Criteria

To establish eligibility for a cardiac and heart surgery negligence claim, it is necessary to prove that the medical professional involved owed you a legal duty of care, that they breached that duty by providing substandard care, and that you suffered a cardiac injury directly as a result of their negligence.

Examples of cardiac and heart surgery negligence include:

  • Misdiagnosis and mistreatment of heart attacks
  • Failure to diagnose a fatal cardiac arrhythmia.
  • Failure to transfer the patient to a heart specialist when required.
  • Failure to diagnose heart disease.

 

 

Documents and Evidence Required

To strengthen your claim, it is advisable to provide us with medical records from the hospital where you received treatment. This can help prove that the medical professional was negligent.

 

Compensation for Cardiac and Heart Surgery Negligence Claims

The compensation you may receive for a cardiac and heart surgery negligence claim is dependent on the severity of your injuries.

Typically, compensation is divided into two categories:

  1. General damages: Compensation for pain and suffering and loss of amenities in daily life.
  2. Special damages: Compensation for financial losses, such as loss of earnings, extra medical expenses, home modifications, and travel expenses associated with your medical care.

 

Claim Timeframe

In most cases, you have three years from the date of the negligence or from the date you became aware of your injury to make a cardiac and heart surgery negligence compensation claim. However, if the claimant was a child at the time of the negligence, they have until their 21st birthday to make a claim.
