Two senior lawyers previously with Slater & Gordon have joined forces to offer a leading medical law advice and disputes team.
Don Cameron, previously the Practice Group Leader for Slater’s Albury and Wagga Offices and one of their most experienced NSW personal injury litigators, has teamed up with Kate Williams who until recently was the Practice Group Leader of Slater & Gordon’s specialist Medical Negligence Division in Sydney to offer a new service for those who suffer from adverse medical outcomes.
“We are looking to provide a comprehensive and expert service delivered in a timely and cost effective fashion. We will provide an honest assessment of our client’s prospects for a successful claim. If we advise that good prospects exist, then we will back that advice with a no win no fee legal cost agreement. Kate joining our team also coincides with some new fixed office space in Sydney and further expands on our ability to assist clients wherever they may be” Don explained.
Kate will work with Don Cameron & Associates as a Consultant Lawyer in Medical Law and will be based from Sydney, where she also retains her own professional consulting practice.
While many poor outcomes might not be related to inappropriate care or treatment, for those that are, compensation can provide some assistance in dealing with the often-dreadful consequences of such an event. As has also been recently discovered, defective or inappropriate medical devices could also have a part to play in a persons adverse outcome.
The challenge for the lawyer is to sift through the medical information and draw back the curtain that often obscures the facts that lead to an understanding of what went wrong and why. This is not a job for the inexperienced or novice. Kate’s prior experience as a nurse, combined with her thorough understanding of the applicable laws allow makes her an ideal choice for medical law clients.
Access to justice is often perceived to be expensive and beyond the reach of many people especially if they are struggling to deal with health issues and may not be working.
For this reason, our practice will not charge for an honest initial assessment. Fees will be explained in full and are normally only payable after a successful conclusion of the case.
