GP Claims

As with all areas of clinical negligence, delay or failure to refer can have significant, long-lasting consequences for a patient and can, unfortunately, on rare occasions, be catastrophic.

A General Practitioner will often have a long term relationship with a patient. General Practitioners assess a wide variety of medical conditions and, based on their knowledge, skill and experience, will either recommend treatment or make a decision to refer a patient for specialist help. As with all areas of clinical negligence, delay or failure to refer can have significant, long-lasting consequences for a patient and can, unfortunately, on rare occasions, be catastrophic.   

Examples where claims might arise include:

  • Failure to diagnose possible strokes/brain haemorrhages;

  • Misdiagnosis;

  • Failure to refer for emergency medical intervention, for example in the case of meningitis or cardiac arrest;

  • Failure to refer to a specialist for investigation or treatment;

  • Late diagnosis of a medical condition or injury;

  • Failure to consider the results of investigations and act appropriately;

  • Prescribing inappropriate medication leading to Injury;

  • Failure in carrying out minor plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures.

Car Accident Claims - FAQs

  • What should I do after a car accident?

    If you are involved in a collision you should:

    1. Note the details of the registration number of the other vehicle and the other driver’s insurance policy so that the insurance company can be contacted to report your car accident claim*.

    2. Seek medical attention for the treatment of your injuries.

    3. Call the Gardai to attend the scene of any road traffic accident so that they can ensure that the insurance details provided are correct.

    4. Contact our specialist car accident claims team at any time for confidential, friendly advice.

  • How long does a car accident claim settlement take?

    Depending on the severity of injury and how clear-cut responsibility for the accident in question is, a resolution of an injury case can take anything from a number of months to three years. The cases that take longer to resolve are generally not delayed by the legal system but by the fact that it can take time for the extent and consequences of injuries to become clear.

  • Who pays for car accident medical bills?

    At Hussey Fraser, your personal injury solicitor is in a position to arrange the finance of medical report fees that will be required to prove an injury case.
    In relation to medical bills that may be received for medical treatment, we ask that these be carefully kept so that we can make a full recovery of all of your medical expenses on the conclusion of your case.

  • What are my next steps?

    In order to progress your enquiry, please submit your contact details or call us LoCall: 1890 66 81 99. As expert car accident solicitors, we can assist you following your car accident. 

  • What does ‘No Win No Fee’ mean?

    No Win No Fee is a payment arrangement between an individual and a Solicitor whereby there are no legal fees payable to the Solicitor in the event that a personal injury claim is unsuccessful.

    Thus the expression ‘No Win, No Fee’.

    In the event that a claim is successful and compensation is awarded to an individual, a Solicitor's legal fees form a pre-agreed part of the settlement.
