Aoife has a wealth of experience advising adults and children in relation to medical negligence claims.

Aoife represents people who have suffered from a spinal injury because of a delay in diagnosing cauda equina or other neurological injuries.
Aoife also specialises in advising women who suffer from gynaecological injuries because of poor medical care and who have suffered from injuries due to failed diagnoses of sepsis.

She is very much aware that pursuing litigation can be daunting for many people and she ensures that she provides clients with the support they need throughout the process.
