Medical Negligence Actions

If you or a member of your family have been provided with medical treatment which you consider to be negligent, as a result of which someone has been injured, sustained a loss, or died, we can provide you with specialist advice. We can assist you in investigating the merits of a claim for medical negligence. In a medical negligence action, it is necessary to engage Expert Witnesses to review relevant medical records and to prepare a medico legal report advising whether, in his or her opinion, the treatment provided to you fell below the standard that a reasonable doctor should have provided. Having considered the Expert’s Report, we can advise you as to the merits of your claim.

Ms. Marysia Kelly has specialised as a medical negligence lawyer for many years, dealing with medical negligence claims involving numerous types of medical treatment. As a result, we have built up a large portfolio of Expert Witnesses, outside of Northern Ireland, in a variety of specialties. We are in a position to contact these Experts directly with a view to engaging them to prepare reports considering the standard of care provided at the relevant time. Ms. Marysia Kelly’s experience in this particular field has led clients from throughout Northern Ireland to approach her to act on their behalf in medical negligence actions. She has acted in claims involving birth injury cases, to include cerebral palsy, injuries sustained as a result of failure to diagnose injuries appropriately at Accident & Emergency Departments, injuries sustained in the course of elective surgery, misdiagnosis, and fatal medical accidents, among others.

We can arrange to meet with you for a short initial consultation to discuss the circumstances of your treatment, and to advise you as to the procedure involved in a medical negligence claim, and your funding options. We will not charge you a fee for this service.
