Medical Negligence Claims
Mistakes by medical professionals can have a devastating effect on the lives of the victims and their families, as well as result in substantial financial losses. If you are unfortunate enough to suffer an injury due to such clinical negligence, Liddy’s Solicitors can help you to claim the compensation you are entitled to and need to deal with your new circumstances.
When clinical negligence takes place, it’s important for those affected by it to seek help from qualified legal professionals who understand the complexities of this area of law. At Liddy’s Solicitors, we have years of experience helping people make successful claims for compensation following negligent medical treatment. We are well-versed in all aspects of clinical negligence and can advise you on your best course of action to receive the clinical negligence compensation you deserve.
Clinical negligence – also known as medical malpractice – occurs when a healthcare professional or medical facility fails to provide an adequate standard of care, causing harm to the patient. It can happen at any stage of a medical procedure, from diagnosis and treatment through to post-operative care. In some cases, it can even occur during the provision of information, such as failing to give patients sufficient warning about potential risks associated with procedures or medications.
Our team has dealt with many different types of clinical negligence cases over the years, including:
- Cerebral palsy caused by birth injuries
- Delayed diagnosis
- Death caused by negligence
- Missed fractures
- MRSA contracted in the hospital
- Inadequate nursing care
- Falls in hospital
- Lack of informed consent before undergoing operations or treatments.
- Delayed cancer diagnosis
- Negligence in Ophthalmological treatment
- Dental Negligence

Clinical Negligence Services
Lack of Informed Consent Claims
Many of us will require hospital treatment at some point in our lives, and if that treatment is intrusive, (requiring an operation or surgical procedure), a doctor must first obtain informed consent to carry out the procedure. To be informed, a doctor must discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure and alternatives to that treatment. It is no longer permissible for a doctor to decide without the patient what risks a patient will take.Read more
