Healthcare Disputes

Our team is highly experienced in defending negligence actions against healthcare professionals, hospitals and care facilities. That experience includes significant birth injury cases and Coroners’ Inquests. We have represented hospitals, doctors and nurses before professional bodies, the Medical Council and An Bord Altranais.

We provide regulatory and risk management advice to healthcare providers and their insurers. Our service includes advising hospitals and nursing homes on their clinical protocols – including infection control and hygiene standards – and risk management strategies.

Members of the group have lectured extensively on key aspects of healthcare law and have provided clients with in-house briefing sessions on risk management.

Our experience includes:

  • Acting in catastrophic personal injuries actions against health care facilities.
  • Acting for mental health care providers in defending actions against them.
  • Representing nurses and doctors before professional bodies.
  • Defending a product liability cases arising from an alleged defect with a medical device.
