Winner Medical Negligence Law Firm of the Year, Irish Law Awards 2021
What is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence (also referred to as medical malpractice/medical misadventure) is professional negligence by act or omission by a health care provider in which care provided deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient, with most cases involving medical error.
Our Medical Negligence Team
Our experienced legal team of medical negligence solicitors in Sligo, Boyle, Dublin, Ballina, Galway and Limerick, jointly headed by Roger Murray and Niamh Ní Mhurchú, represents victims of medical negligence* and malpractice on a nationwide basis. We have won many medical neglect landmark cases and have a national reputation for courageously challenging the medical establishment in Ireland.
We know how hard it can be to get information and straight answers from the medical profession when something goes wrong; we can help to break down those walls of silence to find out what really happened. Victims deserve justice from the medical errors made, and we are uncompromising in our pursuit of redress for victims. We recognise that financial recompense is not the only goal of victims, and we press defendants for apologies, admissions of blame and where possible, assurances through system change that no other family will have to endure the same suffering as a result of a medical mistake, failure to diagnose or medical neglect. We combine strength and compassion, legal knowledge and medical expertise to ensure the best possible outcomes for those who have been wronged or suffered personal injury by the medical profession.
*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.
