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.
