Medical negligence* can lead to physical, emotional and personal trauma as well as significant disability for unfortunate victims.
Moloney & Co. Solicitors are experts in this specialised area of law. The Law for medical negligence* in Ireland is complicated and is governed by the test set out in the Supreme Court case of Dunne V The National Maternity Hospital (1989).   This case provided that:

  • a medical practitioner was negligent in diagnosis of treatment only if he was guilty of such failure as no other medical practitioner of equal specialist or general status or skill will be guilty of if acting with ordinary care
  • a Plaintiff will establish negligence against a medical practitioner by proving his deviation from a general and approved practice only upon proving also that the course taken was one that no other medical practitioner of like specialisation and skill would have followed when taking the ordinary care required from a person of his qualifications.

Our firm offers a dedicated service to the victims of medical negligence and we specialise in the area of medical negligence* claims.
