Medical negligence is unacceptable consideration that has been given by a medical expert to a patient, which has straightforwardly caused injury or made a current condition deteriorate. There’s various ways that medical negligence can happen, for example, misdiagnosis, off base treatment or careful mix-ups.
Persons holding particular expertise will be expected to carry out their work to certain expected standards and so it should be. When they do not and when the outcome is less than could have been properly expected then there may well be an issue that needs addressing. How to go about this is where we come in.
When consulted about such a matter it is the job of a Solicitor to obtain as much detail as possible,documentary and otherwise,identify and instruct an appropriate independent expert,apply the legal principles of the law of professional negligence to the opinion obtained and advise the Client(again in plain English!) as to where matters stand legally.It is well established in Irish law that a claim cannot be brought without such an independent report which is critical of the work carried out.
This is a complex area of law where experience,established relationships with professional experts and availability of resources are central in ensuring a Client receives comprehensive, knowledgeable and,particularly in this area, responsible advice.
Our dedicated department in this area with its very considerable caseload and long established reputation ensures the Client of such personalised,expert and efficient delivery of service
