Victims of Malpractice Association (Incorporation pending)


VMA

We are pleased to announce that we are seeking expressions of interest to join a new Malpractice related group.
The aims are:
Persons diagnosed with any medically acquired disease.
Persons suffering from the result of professional malpractice.
Meetings on a bi-monthly basis.

The aim of this group is to assist future malpractice victims. Professional people are covered by insurance and Governments indemnify their employees against malpractice.
Legal Aid is not always available and if not one has to rely on finding lawyers that will take on the case on a no win, no fee basis.

This discriminates against the ordinary Australian who simply does not have access to the millions of dollars to needed to defend these cases.

We aim to seek an extension of public liability in household insurance to include malpractice. This would be a relatively inexpensive option for insurers as most cases would recoup costs.

To ignore this as a viable option to protecting the health of the ordinary citizen is to dos so at one's own peril. The pace of technology is changing ahead of checks and balances and this is one way to ensure some degree of restraint.

This web sites attempts to identify some of the known medically acquired diseases. What is not known is how many cases are settled out of court and therefore out of the public scrutiny.

We are non professional, non political and are merely here to implement a systme that is fair and equitable for the Australian Public.
