MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE / CLINICAL NEGLIGENCE

Medical negligence can be difficult to prove. Medical negligence can be defined as any action by medical staff or members of hospital/clinic staffs which fall below an acceptable standard of care and which directly causes injury or disease or allows the health of a person to deteriorate as a result. A medical report must be obtained from a suitable qualified doctor expressing an opinion that negligence is present before court proceedings should be issued, and all before the statute of limitation period of 2 years runs out.

You should consult your Solicitor as soon as you become aware of an injury/loss.
