Clinical negligence

Despite improvements in healthcare, incidents of clinical negligence sadly remain an issue for some individuals.

Should you, a member of your family or someone in your care be affected by an act of negligence, our specialist team can provide advice on the victim’s rights, the steps and issues involved with pursuing a claim for compensation and any time limits that may apply with regard to the action.

We can prepare for, pursue and take action on your behalf for injuries resulting from:

  • Orthopaedic procedures
  • Trauma procedures
  • Surgical procedures
  • Dental treatment
  • Failure to diagnose correctly

We also provide legal advice on issues involving the refusal of treatment or care for patients suffering from cancer or other critical illnesses.

In all cases it is vital that the claimant, their family or their representatives are able to prove the negligent act had direct consequences to the outcome of the patient’s condition or injury. Where it is clear this was the case, we can pursue claims for clinical negligence to include any subsequent economic loss arising from the resultant injury or death.
