If you suffer a loss, an avoidable injury or the deterioration of an existing condition due to doctor negligence in Ireland, you should be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Provided that it can be proven that a ‘competent’ doctor would not have made the same mistake or provided a better standard of care ‘in the circumstances and at the time’ a claim for doctor negligence in Ireland should be successful.

However, the procedures for making a claim for doctor negligence in Ireland are not straightforward, as the Injuries Board will decline any application for the assessment of damages submitted to them, and a medical negligence solicitor will have to accept your case. Depending on the nature of your injuries, the solicitor may have to request the release of your medical history to have any relevant notes reviewed by an independent medical specialist. It may also be necessary for you to undergo a further medical examination to prove – even though your doctor was undoubtedly negligent – that you sustained a loss, an injury or the deterioration of an existing condition that would not have occurred anyway.

Compensation for doctor negligence in Ireland is paid by the doctor´s medical insurance company, so you will not be financially crippling a GP who has cared for generations of your family by making a claim for doctor negligence in Ireland – you will however be aiming to receive sufficient compensation to provide you with the medical care to cope with the consequences of your injury. As compensation claims for doctor negligence are among the most complex of legal claims for compensation in Ireland, it is advisable to speak with an experienced medical negligence solicitor at the first possible opportunity.
