Healthcare Law

Medical Negligence cases are essentially a branch of personal injury cases in which special rules apply.

Our expert team has extensive experience in dealing with the complex area of medical negligence claims. All cases are dealt with in confidence and with sensitivity and our experienced team of medical negligence solicitors are on hand to give advice and to advise you of all legal remedies available to you at this stressful time.

With your authority we will take up a copy of your medical records and review them in detail whereupon we will give you a preliminary opinion as to whether there may be an actionable claim for negligence. If at that stage we are confident that you or your loved one has suffered harm as a result of medical negligence we will then advise you and guide you through the process should you decide to proceed with your claim.

The outcome of a case will often depend on whether the action or otherwise of the professional is deemed to be unreasonable in the circumstances and that this negligence caused or contributed to the harm of which you or your loved one complains.

If you or someone you know thinks that they may have suffered harm as a result of negligent care by a medical professional or institution it is important to seek legal advice without undue delay. Under Irish law, proceedings must be issued within 2 years from the date of knowledge of the medical misadventure event or in the case of someone who is under 18 years, 2 years from the date of reaching majority.
