Medical Negligence*

Kent Carty has a specialist team of solicitors with extensive expertise in dealing with medical negligence* issues. This team, led by John Carty, who has over 40 years’ legal experience, has advised on a wide variety of medical claims over the years.

It’s an unpleasant thought to consider that medical procedures can go wrong, and thankfully they rarely do. However, for the few times a mistake is made, the consequences can be life-changing for the individual and result in ongoing medical attention.

We understand that the idea of bringing a medical negligence* claim can be stressful for people.

If you require our help with a medical negligence* claim, we guarantee that the service we will provide to you encompasses clear explanation of how the compensation process works, engaging with medical experts based in the UK and Ireland to secure uncompromised reports, and working with nursing care consultants and occupational therapists to ensure that your future medical needs are included in your claim.

Our clients are often relieved to hear that a very few medical negligence* claims go to Court. Many of the claims we work on are settled out of Court due to our expertise and established processes.

If, however, your claim does have to go to Court, we will continue to support you, explaining every step of the legal process to you and advising you on the next steps, until your claim is resolved.

Over the years, our medical negligence* team has advised on claims which include:

  • Birth Injuries
  • Birth Injuries to the Mother
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Foetal Medicine
  • Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis
  • General Medicine and Surgery
