The McCabes health care and clinical negligence group provide a complete range of professional indemnity services, backed by more than two decades of work with government agencies.
Our group has a comprehensive understanding in this area that has seen us successfully represent government clients on various claims, from alleged professional misconduct to lack of competence and impairment. We understand the significant penalties medical practitioners face in these circumstances, and our clients are assured in the experience and expertise we provide.
We have represented government agencies, including NSW Ministry of Health, on matters including:
Coronial inquests and inquiries in the Coroner’s Court of NSW
Civil claims in the District and Supreme Court of NSW
Clinical negligence claims regarding antenatal testing, wrongful birth, cerebral palsy and other types of catastrophic injury
Breach of privacy and anti-discrimination claims in the Administrative Decisions Tribunal
Appeals to the Court of Appeal of NSW and the High Court of Australia.
Our group also has a comprehensive understanding on the workings of government and the interplay among its various agencies, authorities and corporations. We have a demonstrated ability to apply government policies and directives in a meaningful way. This includes working alongside agencies, such as NSW Ministry of Health, advising on significant policy and legislative changes and developments as they occurred.
