Medical Negligence


Medical negligence in Ireland is defined as the failure of registered medical practitioners or health care providers to meet the acceptable standards of conduct within the medical community for duties and responsibilities relating to the medical profession.

Medical Practitioners or healthcare providers include hospitals, doctors, consultants, surgeon’s dentists, opticians, chiropractors, midwives, plastic/cosmetic consultants, etc.

A Claim for medical negligence can derive from misdiagnosis, a failure to communicate the risk involved in a surgical procedure, substandard care management, errors when completing a medical procedure, etc. It is not just in hospitals where patients may be at risk from medical negligence.

The malpractice or negligent act could cause a wide range of damages from minor injuries to life-threatening situations or even death.
