Medical Negligence *

We have over 30 years  experience in advising clients in relation to what is often a very distressing and difficult time when medical treatment goes wrong. Medical Negligence is an extremely complex area of the law that requires expertise and dedication on the part of the legal advisor. While it is generally accepted that all medical practitioners strive to provide a high standard of health care, mistakes are made sometimes.

If you are concerned that you have been the victim of medical negligence then it is important not to delay in getting advice. Such claims are often quite complex.

We are happy to discuss any potential medical negligence claim that you may have. If we feel that you have a strong case, then we will advise you as to how best to proceed which may include instructing an independent medical expert to examine your notes and records. These will be examined in consultation with you for the purpose of ascertaining what exactly went wrong and whether or not such actions or inactions constitute medical negligence. We will keep you updated throughout your claim and will always be available to discuss any concerns that you may have in relation to your case.
It is important to note that under the Statute of Limitations, you have two years from the date of the accident/injury to make a claim. These time limits are amended for minors (persons under 18 years of age or those suffering incapacity).
We advise clients in relation to the following:

  • Cerebral palsy cases
