Be aware of your rights and seek advice

If you have been to a hospital or doctor in Ireland and you have suffered an injury due to mistreatment or lack of care then you may be able to seek compensation. However medical negligence claims* can be more complex than typical personal injury claims* and as such the Injuries Board has no jurisdiction in regard to medical negligence claims. 

As its difficult to prove medical negligence it is advisable to seek legal advise to get a better understanding of the nature of your injury or illness claim*. At John O’Leary Solicitors we can assist you, so please don’t hesitate to call for a free consultation.
