Personal Injury Claims

Between April 2011 to March 2012, the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) received 2 403 complaints. Some of these claims related to cases of misdiagnosis, practising outside the scope of practice, and refusal to treat patients.

The South African Railway State-of-Safety Report for the period 1 April 2010 to 31 March 2011 revealed that 1,534 people were injured and 457 died on the country’s railways. These statistics are frightening indeed.
