Genetic testing, wearable devices and nanotechnology have transformed healthcare, providing better ability to predict, manage and improve our health. But they also pose challenges for the healthcare sector and the insurance industry. Our expectation of better health driven by medical innovation has risen, but traditional insurance risks of medical negligence and product malfunction remain.
Our insurance expertise, coupled with a deep understanding of the healthcare, life science and medical device sectors, means our team is well placed to provide specialist legal advice on claims affecting medical professionals and others in the industry.
We have worked with hundreds of registered healthcare practitioners, as well as alternative therapists and managers in the health industry. We have represented hospitals, health clinics, medical training facilities, aged care and respite facilities, together with allied medical service providers such as radiology, nuclear medicine and pathology practices.
