At Diamond Heron we act for victims of medical negligence. We have acted against hospitals, general practitioners, dentists and cosmetic surgery practices. In this very specialist area of law we use our membership of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) to assist our clients. We use experts throughout the UK and Ireland to provide medical reports commenting on the care provided by the medical profession in Northern Ireland.
We understand that medical negligence is a very emotive type of case, our clients often feel let down by the medical profession and our ethos is to help those clients with the many legal and personal questions they may have about their case. We have represented families in inquests and then advised on the legal aspects of any case they may have.
Medical negligence cases are often defended and can apply for legal aid and also advise on the costs implications of bringing a case. We use specialised barristers with medical experience to make representation in court and advise clients at consultations.
We have recovered compensation for clients for injuries they have received, loss of earnings, care costs and future medical costs.
