Medical negligence claims & compensation

Belfast & Northern Ireland

At McCartan Turkington Breen, we have helped many people right across Northern Ireland claim following a mistake made by a healthcare professional. Our Belfast based team of dedicated medical negligence claims solicitors have obtained compensation for clients that have suffered a range of issues, from missed fractures and misdiagnosed illnesses to serious life-changing conditions such as cerebral palsy and other birth injuries.

Our clinical negligence solicitors will work tirelessly to get you:

  • Compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of amenity.
  • Private medical examinations, treatment and ongoing care.
  • Any home carers, assistive technologies and home alterations required.
  • Any other special damages that are appropriate in the context of your case.

We understand the pain, suffering and stress caused by suffering because of the mistakes of those who were supposed to care for you. Our mission is to get you back to where you were before you experienced medical negligence, or as close to it as possible. In cases of more serious consequences, we can ensure you receive the best quality of care and standard of living available.

What is medical negligence?

Medical negligence is also known as clinical negligence. This is because it covers not only medical professionals such as doctors and nurses but also dentists, psychologists, physiotherapists, beauty therapists and more. It occurs when a medical or healthcare professional fails to provide a patient with a reasonable standard of care and they were harmed as a result. You can learn more at: What is medical negligence?
