2 Tips for Medical Negligence and Victims of Institutional Abuse Lawyers:
Tip 1: Start on the front foot when initiating proceedings. How? Why its important? Reminder: Victims of Institutional Abuse limitation period has been abolished in NSW. Medical Negligence claims have limitation period, however, don’t file, without fulfilling the UCPR requirements.
Tip 2: Defendant is tardy, reticent, unwilling to file a Defence (which will be evident), either in accord with UCPR or court timetable. What can you do? What onus is then put onto the defendant once a default judgment has been entered? Particularly useful in victims of institutional abuse cases.
