Accidents will happen, and they do, every day. Whether you have been injured on the roads, at work, on a dangerous footpath, or if you have been injured due to a defective product, or a medical accident you may be able to claim compensation.

Often, people are reluctant to claim because they feel that it is somehow wrong to seek compensation. However, it is your legal right. Nowadays, most claims for compensation for injuries begins with an application to the Injuries Board . Many cases claiming compensation for loss or injury are resolved by the Injuries Board, and do not go before the courts.

She will meet with you and give you a straight assessment of your claim. She will explain what steps have to be taken, and when the Injuries Board assess your claim, she will review the compensation awarded, and advise whether or not you should accept the award, or submit your claim to Court.

 

Medical Negligence

Like other injury claims, to succeed with a Medical Negligence Claim, the plaintiff has to prove that he or she has been injured, and that injury has been caused by the negligence of a third party (In medical negligence cases, this is usually a health professional or hospital). However, proving negligence can be more difficult given the technical medical information that has to be considered, conflicting expert opinions and the number of people that may have been involved in your treatment. The Courts will determine your case based on the evidence of an expert, who will give evidence as to how he or she would have acted in circumstances such as yours.  Mary McGregor can get your medical records reviewed by an appropriate expert and advise you whether or not you can prove liability for medical negligence. If you believe that your medical treatment has caused you injury and loss, you should contact us without delay.
