You never have to think of personal injury and all that it means until you are involved in an accident whether in the car, at work or a slip or fall or you are the victim of medical negligence.
The majority of personal injury claims are required by law to be submitted to the Injuries Board. There are strict time limits for making an injury claim. In the Republic of Ireland this period is 2 years from the date of accident.
We advise clients in all areas of personal injury claims from accidents at work, road traffic accidents, falls, trips and slips, public liability and medical negligence / malpractice.
We always aim to obtain the best possible result for our clients be it through negotiation and settlement or through a full trial in as short a time-frame as possible.
Medical negligence action*
A medical negligence action can be brought against members of the healthcare profession including but not limited to general practitioners, specialist consultants / surgeons, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, dentists, opticians, Accident and Emergency staff, nursing home staff and social workers.
If you believe you or a loved one has suffered an injury or failed to recover fully from a standard procedure or in fact someone has died as a result of the action or inaction of medical personnel, the best action for you or your family member is a clinical negligence action against the appropriate medical personnel involved.
Medical negligence claims are very complicated. It is always therefore advisable that any person contemplating taking a medical negligence action should seek the advices of an expert solicitor with experience of medical negligence actions.
Michael G. Bohan & Co. Solicitors have extensive experience in both personal injury and medical negligence actions, carrying out investigations and determining if an action exists and gathering the necessary legal and medical evidence to prove that the injuries which have been sustained are as a result of an accident / negligence.
*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award settlement.
You should note that no solicitor/client relationship or duty of care or liability of any nature shall exist or be deemed to exist between Michael G. Bohan & Co. Solicitors and you until you have received a written letter of engagement from us in which we confirm our appointment as your Solicitors.
