As the entire process was new and unnerving we found that Helen always made the process seem a little less stressful. The overall case was a difficult one due to the complex nature of it and we always felt that we were very well served. Helen’s insight and knowledge and overall understanding of our own personal circumstances made it easier for us to manage. Some of the discussions I needed to have with Helen were very tough for me as they all related to my ongoing health and future prognosis, this Helen managed with extreme care and compassion and made me feel like I was understood and I had someone in my corner.

R.C., Medical Negligence Client

Medical negligence claims* cover everything from compensation for a minor complaint such as a dentist extracting a healthy tooth (leading to extended pain and expense) to compensation for far more serious injuries where your long term health has been compromised or where there has been a fatality.

Medical negligence can arise where there is a misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis or treatment. This negligence can occur during surgery. Equally it can arise if you were not adequately informed and warned of the risk associated with a certain procedure.

The following are some examples of clinical negligence claims we have successfully pursued on behalf of clients:

  • Accidental cutting of the bile duct during a gallstone removal operation – see here for further information.
  • Failure to prescribe antibiotics post-operatively leading to septicaemia.
  • Nerve damage caused during a spinal fusion operation.
  • Infection suffered during a laparoscopy.

We act for clients all over the country and particularly in Dublin.  If you would like further information in relation to the medical negligence cases we have worked on, click here.
