Medical Negligence

Expert commercial and regulatory advice.


Most highly regarded medical negligence teams in Australia

McCabes has one of the largest and most highly regarded medical negligence teams in Australia. We represent medical practitioners, allied health professionals, visiting medical officers, medical device organisations, mental health clinics, aged care providers and hospital groups across a broad range of medical negligence and health care disputes.

Our experience includes coronial inquests and inquiries, civil claims, clinical negligence claims regarding antenatal testing, wrongful birth, nervous shock, cerebral palsy and other types of catastrophic injury, breach of privacy and anti-discrimination claims in the Administrative Decisions Tribunal and appeals to the Court of Appeals and the High Court of Australia.

Our claims model is designed to arrive at an early assessment of defence and recovery prospects and keep under constant review settlement prospects and strategies. This enables fast-tracking to alternative dispute resolution for those claims or causes of action with low defence/recovery prospects, with associated cost savings and reduced shelf-life.

Our success with our clients is recognised through being named in the Doyle’s Guide since 2012 as a Leading Medical Negligence & Malpractice Law Firm.
