HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE BEEN A VICTIM OF MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE?
We are often consulted by people seeking to discover whether what they are suffering from, following some medical treatment, is the result of medical negligence*. Although this is a simple question often asked by patients, it can be an extremely difficult question to answer. It is absolutely essential that you seek legal advice from a Solicitor who has the requisite experience of dealing with this complex area of law. A key issue is to differentiate between the unfortunate patient who suffers the known complications of a medical procedure, which occurs without any negligent act by the medical personnel, from the patient who suffers an injury which has been caused by a failure in the standard of care when rendering the medical procedure to the patient. This can often be an extremely difficult task and one which requires the assistance of Expert Medical Personnel from outside Ireland.
With over 20 years experience working in the area of Medical Negligence*, our experienced solicitors, led by Founding Partner Noel Sheridan, offer a dedicated service to the victims of Medical Negligence*, working through the complicated legal processes in order to secure proper compensation for the injury suffered by the patient.
