On a case by case basis we take on medical negligence claims. At the very outset we vigorously assess the strength of the case to see whether it can be proved that a patient suffered serious harm as a result of below standard medical care. We have a panel of expert witnesses available to attend court who assist in assessing medical negligence.
Medical negligence cases involve a significant committment in time, money and energy from all concerned, clients and lawyers alike, and therefore you should contact Clohessy Minihane Solicitors at an early stage for a consultation to discuss your claim. In plain English we will discuss the strenghts of your case, the procedures involved, the time scale and the legal costs and outlays.*
Prior to filing court proceedings for medical negligence a claimant is required to obtain a report from an independent expert. We will assist in obtaining a report from an independent doctor. We will brief a barrister who specialises in medical negligence cases to draft the court proceedings and to present the case in court at the court hearing.
We have successfully concluded a number of these cases and look forward to discussing your case with you.
