Medical Negligence

Damien-Tansey-Solicitors-Medical-NegligenceDamien Tansey Solicitors has a highly specialised team of Medical Negligence* / Medical Malpractice* solicitors. Senior Partner Damien Tansey has been practising in this field for more than 35 years. He has represented families at some of Ireland’s highest profile Coroners’ Inquests. He has also been involved in many of the landmark cases relating to medical negligence that have been heard before the Irish Courts. Some of those landmark cases have attracted some of the highest compensation awards ever handed down by the Courts.

If you, or someone close to you, suffered an injury or damage as a result of medical negligence, our solicitors may be able to help you. Victims of medical mistreatment / medical errors want to find out the truth about what happened to them, and whether anyone is to blame for their injuries. They may also be entitled to compensation for their injuries*, be they physical and/or mental. Their families may require representation at an Inquest.

Medical Misadventure cases are difficult and complex cases where the “Defendant” is the doctor,  the dentist,  the HSE or a private hospital. Typically, these are classic “David versus Goliath” type conflicts. However, because of our tough and unyielding search for answers, our experienced team is the measure of such contests. Over the years, our team of solicitors have become acknowledged nationally as having a distinct edge in this specialised field of medical negligence – not only by the public, but also by colleagues in the legal and medical professions. We strive to secure the best outcome possible for clients in a timely manner, whether that be through the Courts, through Mediation, or through any other form of Dispute Resolution.

Though the firm’s principal office is located in Sligo, our solicitors regularly meet clients in Dublin and throughout the country to discuss their medical negligence cases.
