Medical Negligence

“Doing what’s best for your future health and wellbeing.”

Finding out you have not received the medical treatment and care that you deserve can be extremely emotionally distressing for you and your family. Whether you have experienced a misdiagnosis, your routine surgery did not go as planned, or you received substandard aftercare and treatment from a physician, medical negligence cases happen more often than you may realise.

Ideally you will want to seek legal advice as soon as you think you may have experienced medical negligence. However, as is often the case, many people do not realise that something went wrong until many months down the line when they are not recovering or recuperating as expected. If a person is in very bad health and too ill to seek out the services of a Solicitor, it is advisable that a family member seeks legal advice on their behalf.

At Poe Kiely Hogan Lanigan we have solicitors with particular expertise in the complex areas of medical mismanagement and negligence. We are here to listen to your side of the story and to advise you, taking into consideration your best interests and your future health and wellbeing. We will discuss your rights, the extent of your injury/illness, any expenses you have incurred and the cost of any aftercare you may need. Acting with compassion, we will always endeavour to gain compensation for you, as well as an explanation as to what exactly went wrong.

We provide specialist legal advice on the following areas:

  • Medical misdiagnosis
  • Surgical negligence
  • Dental injury
  • Pregnancy & birth injuries
  • Prescription & medication errors
  • Negligent medical advice
  • Cosmetic surgery errors
