Michael Boylan Addresses Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health and Children

Medical Negligence

Our firm acted for the Plaintiff in the first ever successful birth injury/Cerebral Palsy action brought in this country against a maternity hospital. The case of Dunne (an infant) –v– The National Maternity Hospital 1989 was the landmark case which, after a Trial, an Appeal and a Re-Trial laid down and established the principles of medical negligence law to be applied to all cases of medical negligence and professional negligence before the Courts in this country. Over the past 25 years our group has been successful in literally hundreds of Medical Negligence actions for patients and their families.

This ensures that as a victim of a medical accident, you receive the best quality, most experienced legal advice. We have a strong, proven track record of fighting for fair outcomes and justice. We are committed to and not afraid of fighting meritorious cases no matter how difficult and complex. We are interested in making a genuine difference to real people who need help and who have been injured by the deficiencies in our health system. We fight hard for an extra bit more because as lawyers we recognise that a fair outcome is worth fighting for.

We do not promise a “quick fix”, “flashy gimmicks” or promise more than we can deliver but we do promise you, as our logo states “thoughtful clear advice”. We have a high rate of referral work from word of mouth from former clients and indeed from other firms of solicitors.

We recognise that a medical accident has significant emotional and financial consequences for you and your family and we will do everything we can to make the process run as smoothly as possible for you. Although our aim is to secure proper compensation wherever appropriate, we hope in all cases to obtain an explanation for what happened to you and hold the doctor or hospital accountable for their actions. We strongly believe in the ethos that the ordinary man, woman or child who is the victim of medical negligence is entitled to just as good, if not better, legal representation than that provided to the State, hospital boards and medical consultants.  We believe proper access to justice is a fundamental right and not a privilege.
