What is Medical Negligence?

  1. Similar to other Personal Injury Claims, injury caused by Medical Negligence (also known as Clinical Negligence) usually occurs when doctors and other medical professionals make an error in their medical judgement, in surgery or simply does not uphold the duty of care expected of medical professionals.
  2. If you suspect you have been subject to Medical Negligence it is best to speak with a Medical Negligence solicitor to establish if you have a case and how best to move forward.

How to make a Medical or Dental Negligence Claim

The process on how to make a Medical Negligence Claim in Ireland is different when compared to other Personal Injury Claims. Personal Injury Claims are first passed through the Injuries Board for assessment before they reach a court hearing.

Medical Negligence claims in general are brought straight to court and are not assessed by The Injuries Board.

  • Medical Records

If instructed by you, Hussey Fraser Solicitors will seek all of your medical records and have them reviewed by a medical expert who will assist in identifying any medical negligence involved in your medical treatment. We would secure a medical report detailing the injuries you have sustained as a result of any Medical or Dental Negligence.

The first step in any Medical Negligence Claim is to register court proceedings.

  • Medical Expenses

It is important to note that in any Medical Negligence Claim, you are entitled to recover all expenses incurred directly as a result of the injuries you have sustained. Such expenses include:

  • doctors fees
  • chemist fees
  • physiotherapy fees
  • travel expenses
  • and even loss of earnings
  • How long do I have to make a Medical or Dental Negligence Claim?

The Statute of Limitations for a Medical or Dental Negligence Claim in Ireland is two years less a day from the date that an injury is known to have been sustained. In most cases this may be immediately after the accident/ incident while in other cases it may take weeks/ months or even years for you to realise an injury or an illness.

    Dear John … Following conclusion of my case I would like to thank you so much. Thank you for trusting me from the very first day I informed you about my situation.

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for me and I am delighted with the outcome of my case in achieving justice and damages and payment for my dental injuries and all of my dental costs.

    Always believed in the case, despite setbacks that we would get Justice. The man is the type of Guy you would want in your corner in a battle...
    After an extremely traumatic Medical Experience,I sought out legal Advice from three separate well known law Firms in Ireland. The stand out Solicitor of the three "large" firms was John Brown of Fraser Hussey. John over 4 years was a TRUE professional and always believed in the case, despite setbacks that we would get Justice. The man is the type of Guy you would want in your corner in a battle,he is a true terrier for justice … John's explanations and ability to keep me informed of every angle of the case was second to none, he is meticulous and very emotionally aware. I cannot recommend this man from the great Fraser Hussey enough. Thank you John!
