Medical Negligence

Have you been misdiagnosed or mistreated by a healthcare professional in Northern Ireland or Ireland? If so, you may be entitled to compensation.

The consequences of receiving negligent medical treatment can be very serious. If you believe you have received incompetent or below standard treatment from doctors or any other healthcare professionals, we can offer our legal expertise in making a case for medical negligence and helping you to make a claim.

We will help you to understand what can often be a complex area of law.

We offer our cross-border services across a wide range of medical negligence claims to both individual clients and groups.

Professional health service staff deliver most medical and nursing treatment in the UK and Ireland. However, tight deadlines and budgets can increase mistakes.

Medical negligence refers to breach of duty by a healthcare professional that leads to the avoidable harm of a patient. There are a number of ways that medical negligence can happen, such as misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment or surgical mistakes.
