Gert Nel Inc - We aim for the most positive outcome

When you have suffered as a result of the negligence or malpractice of a medical professional, the initial shock often overrides all other faculties of your mind.

Initially your primary goal is to heal any injuries incurred, however, it is not always as simple as that. Medical negligence claims can be complicated and technical and the compensatory packages are only paid out after the case is finalised.

Claiming for medical negligence 

This means that if you are unable to pay for the medical treatment required to heal the complications arising out of negligence, you will be unable to receive the necessary treatment until you have launched and concluded a claim.

It is for this reason that you must contact your legal team as soon as possible in order to avoid any lapse in evidence as well as unwanted delays in the monetary compensation.

When contacting Gert Nel Inc. you will be directed to the medical negligence department who will assess your case and advise you on your best course of action for you to claim for compensation. When considering a case, Gert Nel Inc. will establish only the facts of the matter and relevant witness testimony, not allowing for any blurring of the evidence. After consulting with the necessary professionals, the firm will advise you on what to expect from the case, what could be achieved in terms of monetary compensation and how the process will unfold.

The beginning of any head, brain or even anaesthesia death claim is always marked by a differing medical evaluation of a patient by another medical professional. Following this, the circumstances surrounding the reasons for a differing diagnosis are considered by the medical practitioner and she may conclude that the injuries are the result of negligence or malpractice. Doctors may be unwilling to 'turn on their own' and so it is vital that you consult with experts in medico-law who can accurately assess the causal chain involved leading up to the complications.

Gert Nel Inc. provides their clients with legal services of the highest calibre and works ceaselessly to ensure the best outcome for their clients.
