Medical Negligence

Medical practitioners and hospitals have a duty of care towards their patients. A breach of that duty of care can occur in a variety of circumstances ranging from a failure to warn a patient of the dangers involved in surgery, failure to correctly diagnose an illness, or to incorrectly treat an illness they do not have.

If it is found that there has been a breach of this duty of care and a person suffers injury, loss or damage as a result of the negligent treatment provided by a medical practitioner, hospital or other health care provider, a person may be entitled to claim against them for damages.

Medical claims are complex and require an expert medical report to be obtained prior to any claim being lodged. There are time limits involved and it is important that any person who has been injured due to medical negligence speaks to an experienced solicitor quickly. At Lough & Wells Lawyers we have the experience to provide you with proper advice regarding the best course of action in seeking compensation for any injury loss and damage.
