Medical Negligence

Do you need advice?

What we provide

Medical Negligence Claims are often more complex than any other types of personal injury claims.


In Ireland, a medical negligence claim may arise if you have suffered an injury (or an exacerbation of a pre-existing medical condition) as a result of medical mistreatment, misdiagnosis or lack of care.


The law provides the opportunity for an individual to make a medical negligence claim if he/she can prove “on the balance of probabilities” that a medical practitioner has acted negligently in his/her treatment of a patient.

This is a complex area which has been acknowledged by our legal system.

Therefore, if you feel that you or any member of your family or close friends have suffered as a result of a misdiagnosis of illness or injury, misreading of test results, error in performance of a surgical procedure or operation, nursing care or general lack of professionalism in the treatment provided by the particular medical practitioner/hospital, it may well be that a stateable cause of action arises. It is important to note that any action contemplated by the injured party must be taken within a two-year period, as a general rule.


“*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement”.
