How a Hospital Solicitor can help you with Hospital Negligence
If you or a loved one have suffered an injury because of hospital negligence, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim.
The State Claims Agency responsible for clinical indemnity of Irish hospitals paid out nearly fifty million euro for hospital and medical negligence claims in 2008. The average settlement was sixty three thousand euro. Cases ranged from minor injuries due to slips and falls, to serious and sometimes fatal errors in diagnosis or treatment of patients.
The Injuries Board who are tasked to evaluate all personal injury claims in Ireland, do not handle medical negligence cases. This is because they require a highly competent hospital solicitor with experience of both medical matters and the hospital system. For example, a hospital solicitor will almost always require at least one report from an independent medical expert. Even knowing which expert to bring in to support your case requires a hospital solicitor to have deep knowledge in this area.
