Specialist Medical & Professional Negligence Solicitors
Medical Negligence Solicitors
Medical negligence occurs when the level of care that a patient receives falls below the standard expected from a medical professional and where the mistake results in an injury or makes an existing condition worse.
When mistakes happen it is important that patients receive an explanation as to what went wrong. Patients are always anxious to ensure that lessons are learned where a mistake is made so as to avoid any other person or family having to suffer a similar injury or fatality in the future.
The Liston Flavin team have represented individuals and families who have been victims of medical negligence for almost 20 years.
They were winners of the Medical Negligence Team of the Year at the Irish Law Awards in 2019 whilst working in Orpen Franks Solicitors. They recently set up their own specialist medical negligence law firm and provide expert advice to victims of medical negligence in a professional and caring manner.
They also endeavour to seek an apology from doctors or hospitals where mistakes are made and they seek substantial compensation as a result of the injuries that victims or families suffer from as a result of negligence by a doctor or medical professional.
