Medical negligence* claims arise when you have suffered a personal injury* as a result of medical negligence* or lack of care. Branigan Berkery Solicitors is experienced in the handling of medical negligence* claims, having successfully represented clients for a number of medical-related injuries. Before initiating a claim, you must receive a report from a qualified expert confirming that, in their opinion, you received treatment that is below the standard that is to be expected – once we have procured this report, we can then determine whether it is justifiable to issue proceedings. Unlike most personal injury* compensation cases, the Injuries Board will refuse jurisdiction in respect of medical negligence* claims.
Medical negligence* claims are generally more complex than other types of personal injury claims*, which is why you must seek the advice of a fully qualified and experienced solicitor, such as those at Branigan Berkery Solicitors.
