If you have suffered harm due to a delayed or misdiagnosis while under medical care, you should call us to obtain expert legal advice. This area of practice is headed byJohn McCabe, who specialises in this area of law. John has several years’ experience in a medical negligence and personal injury law firm.
One of the first steps you will need to take is to call us for a consultation. Then it will be necessary to obtain your medical and radiology records from the hospital or care facility you were treated under Freedom of Information or Data Protection Acts.
To further progress the matter and before issuing High Court proceedings, it will usually be necessary to then furnish your medical records to an expert in the United Kingdom to obtain an independent report on liability and causation - that is to say who is liable for the harm suffered and is that harm or injury 'on the balance of probabilities' caused by the negligence act of the doctor or hospital that treated you.
