What is medical negligence or medical misdiagnosis?

Medical negligence or medical misdiagnosis or clinical negligence refers to a situation where a patient sustains a personal injury or illness as a result of an error made by a medical practitioner / professional.

The medical practitioner or professional has a duty of care to the patient. They must ensure that all surgeries and assessments are carried out in a careful, safe, and appropriate manner. Where a diagnosis is involved, it should be accurate and correct.

Medical Negligence Process

How do I make a medical negligence claim?

Consult our medical negligence solicitors

It is advisable for you to speak to our experienced team of Medical Negligence Solicitors as soon as possible if you believe that you were not provided with an adequate or appropriate level of medical care, which resulted in you sustaining an injury or illness. Call us on 1800 844 104 or email

We obtain your medical records

After the consultation with your medical negligence solicitor, he/she will request access to your medical records and engage an independent medical expert to assess your records. The purpose of engaging an independent expert is to establish whether there was any negligence on the part of the medical professional.

Medical negligence litigation process

Where the independent medical expert is of the professional opinion that medical negligence did occur, upon your instructions, your solicitor will commence the process of issuing legal proceedings in Court against the medical professional and/or hospital.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I eligible for a medical negligence claim?

For an eligible medical negligence claim, the injury or illness suffered would have to have been ‘avoidable’. There must also be proof of:

There is an existing doctor-patient relationship

Firstly, your solicitor would help you to prove that a doctor-patient relationship did exist. This is accomplished by obtaining medical records, prescriptions, and invoicing records from the doctor against whom you are filing a medical negligence claim.

Evidence that the Medical Professional was negligent

After collecting all documents, your solicitor will select an independent medical expert to investigate whether or not negligence occurred. The third-party expert will then examine your case, medical data, and the medical practitioner’s activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the time limits for making a medical negligence claim?

The legal time limit to make a medical negligence claim is two years from the date of injury or date of knowledge that the injury or illness resulted from medical negligence.

For children/minors, the time limit expires two years after their 18th birthday. You may contact a solicitor to discuss your case to advise of the Statute of Limitations applicable to your case.

How much compensation will I get for medical negligence?

Although no amount of compensation will ever reverse the negative effects of medical negligence, be it physical and/or psychological injury, a medical negligence claim can compensate you for the pain and suffering experienced as a result of the injury sustained, as well as provide you with financial support to ensure adequate care is provided for you.
