Medical Negligence Compensation Claims

Our medical negligence solicitors offer a free consultation for victims of medical malpractice, negligence or accidents.

Call on 028 9045 3449 or by email to get professional no obligation advice at no cost to you. There are a number of various cost arrangements which can be put in place and if you are under 18 years of age then you are likely to be entitled to Legal Aid for a medical negligence claim as it is the child’s income, which is taken into account as opposed to a parents’ income.

Deciding to make a clinical negligence claim is daunting, because of the issue’s sensitive and controversial nature. We aim to give expert guidance and support throughout the process. Our qualified, experienced solicitors take every possible step to get you a successful outcome, taking account of your individual needs and circumstances.

If you would like advice about substandard medical care, contact us now to speak to one of our qualified solicitors. Your conversation is strictly confidential.

In addition, there is potential that your own home insurance policy may cover you initially in the case or indeed it is possible to take out after the event insurance policies to cover any potential cost involved in bringing a medical negligence action. Please don’t let the potential for the cost of proceeding put you off as there are a number of potential options to discuss in regards to covering the costs of any action.

We cover the following areas but will also happily discuss any other medical negligence action:

Birth injury claims

We have brought claims for birth injuries caused to both mothers and babies and those claims include –

  • Injuries sustained in caesarean section
  • Retained swabs
  • Wrongly performed episiotomies.

In relation to birth injury claims injuries can be sustained by medical mistakes in labour or delivery and it is crucial to obtain the best possible legal expertise to advise you whether there is potential for a case such as injury sustained like:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Brain Injuries
  • Orthopaedic fracture injuries sustained during birth.

Cancer claims

  • Care home claims

Transvaginal mesh implants claims

Transvaginal Mesh implants are medical devices used by surgeons to treat pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence in women usually after childbirth. Many women in Northern Ireland have experienced severe pain and psychological injuries following the insertion of these implants and are entitled to take Legal Action to obtain financial compensation.
