Medical Negligence Frequently Asked Questions

Who can take a medical or dental negligence case?

A medical or dental negligence case can be taken by anyone who feels they have suffered an injury as a result of their treatment. If that treatment was performed negligently, you may be entitled to compensation.

Who is eligible for compensation?

Here at Sherwin O’Riordan our experienced solicitors will advice you on this complex area of the law.

To successfully bring a compensation claim for medical or dental negligence it has to be determined that the treatment that you received was not of the required standard and that this caused your injury.

What is the time limit for bringing a medical or dental negligence case

The time limits for bringing a medical or dental negligence case is more complex than in general personal injury cases. The time limit is usually two years from the date of the injury or from when you first became aware of the injury. It is important to take advice on a potential medical or dental negligence case as early as possible to allow for the preparation of the case before any proceedings are issued.
