Medical Negligence Litigation

A personal injury arising from a medical accident, misdiagnosis or failure to provide a patient with proper care or gain their consent to a procedure can have significant financial and emotional consequences.

We can assist you in bringing a claim for compensation against the relevant medical practitioner, hospital or health board.

Claims for medical negligence by their nature are not speedily resolved and often involve an element of the injured party seeking the truth behind their injury and accountability on the part of the defendant for their actions but we will guide you through the litigation process and make every effort to ensure you are properly compensated.

A claim of this nature requires a legal team with significant knowledge and experience in the area of medical negligence together with sensitivity and compassion for the circumstances in which you and your family might find yourselves. We take a supportive yet pragmatic approach to all medical negligence claims and will work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.

Examples of medical negligence claims includes:

  • Birth Injuries
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Hospital Negligence
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Dental Negligence
  • Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery mistakes
  • Defective medical devices

Timeframes

Please be aware that by law there are statutory deadlines that set out the timeframe within which you can bring a claim for compensation, so it is important to speak with us as soon as possible when you become aware of the injury or loss you have suffered.

Typically, a person has two years from the date of the incident or the date they become aware the injury is due to negligent care.

For children, an adult can bring a claim on their behalf or otherwise they have until two years after their 18th birthday to bring a claim themselves arising from an accident.

*In contentious cases, a solicitor may not charge fees or expenses as a portion or percentage of any award of settlement.
