Medical Negligence is one of the most traumatic experiences that an individual can experience. At Sinnott Solicitors we believe that victims should be properly compensated for their suffering.
Medical Negligence can lead to physical, emotional and personal trauma, as well as loss of earnings. Sinnott Solicitors believe that not only should the individual receive compensation for the negligence, they should also receive justice for the wrong done. We believe that this will also assist in heightened patient awareness and improved medical standards.
Sinnott Solicitors offer a dedicated service to victims of medical negligence, working through the complicated legal processes in order to secure compensation for the damage done.
Clinical and Medical Negligence claims can cover the following areas:
- Cerebral Pasly Cases
- Negligence in Accident & Emergency Departments.
- Cancer Misdiagnosis.
- Orthopaedic Negligence.
- Surgical Errors.
- Laparoscopy or Keyhole Surgery.
- Cosmetic Surgery.
- Neonatal Surgery.
- Obstetric or Gynaecological Injuries
There are Compensation Schemes attached to these injuries also. People with haemophilia infected with Hepatitis C and/or HIV from contaminated blood products have such a scheme.
There is also the Residential Institutions Redress Board for victims of Institutional Abuse in State run institutions, along with a Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse.
There is a Lourdes Hospital Redress Scheme for victims of the wrongful practices of Dr Michael Neary, an obstetrician who performed unnecessary hysterectomies and opherectomies in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda, Co Louth between 1974 and 1998.
