Birth Injuries & Gynaecological Claims

The birth of your child is one of the most monumental events in your life, and your entire trust is placed in the hands of your consultant, midwives and maternity hospital you attend to safely deliver your new-born child into this world.

Whereas thankfully the overwhelming majority of births in Ireland are without incident, unfortunately, there can be occasion where complications can arise for various reasons causing injury to mother and or child.

If you are concerned or believe you or your child has suffered injuries at birth, it is important to undertake enquires at the earliest opportunity, so that your medical records can be reviewed by a suitably qualified expert to assess if the standard of care you received was below that which would be expected in such circumstances.

Cancer Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis

Receiving a cancer diagnosis comes as a devastating shock.  We all know that early detection is key to a positive long-term prognosis and we depend on the professionalism of our medical doctors and their teams, who without question, work tirelessly to make us well.

Unfortunately, there are times when those that we rely on for their expertise do not identity the signs and symptoms of cancer at the earliest opportunity and referrals for the required tests and scans are not made in a timely manner, treatment plans and monitoring may be delayed or not of the appropriate standard, or there may be an incorrect diagnosis.

We know that with such failures and omissions cancer can grow and whereas some cancers are more curable than others, the delay in proper treatment can have very serious and grave consequences for patients.

If you believe that you have been a victim of a cancer misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis due to negligence and are concerned that standard of care and treatment you received was below that which you would have received from another professional/hospital and you have suffered injury you may be entitled to pursue a medical negligence claim.

Cosmetic Surgery Claims

Demand for cosmetic surgery has increased dramatically over the years, with a wide range of procedures possible and available throughout the country.

It is very important for anyone considering such surgical or non-invasive procedures to engage a reputable and suitably qualified professional and clinic before embarking on such treatments.

Complications can arise and you may not always achieve the results you expect, but this does not necessarily mean that you are victim of medical negligence.

To success in a medical negligence claim, you must show that the standard of care and treatment you received was below that which you would have received from another professional/clinic and you have suffered injury as a result.
