Personal Injury Litigation Limerick: People are regularly injured in accidents through no fault of their own. The most common by far are road traffic accidents. Whatever the circumstances of the crash, if you suffered hurt in an accident not your fault a personal injury litigation solicitor in Limerick could ensure that you receive adaquate compensation for your trauma.
The same is the case if a medical procedure goes wrong. Most of the medical profession are dedicated professionals who deliver a top class service to their patients. However, mistakes, misdiagnosis and unnecessary, costly and ineffective treatments are sometimes given. The running of many hospitals these days are managed as a business with accountants aiming to maximize profits while keeping costs down. This has resulted in many instances of the hospitals being short of qualified staff and the staff they have being overworked.
For whatever reason, it sometimes happens that there are unfortunate occurrences and the patient receives incorrect, inappropriate or painful treatment which often leaves them in a worse condition than they were before.
If this has happened to you, you are strongly recommended to get in touch with a qualified medical negligence solicitor who will investigate your situation and decide if there is a case for compensation.
One often hears about huge awards being been granted in cases of car accidents or medical malpractice but despite the enormous publicity given to those awards, it is only in very rare cases that vast sums are allocated.
According to Donal Houlihan of Houlihan Solicitors in Limerick “big settlements are, as a rule, only for very grave injuries that have seriously affected the
injured or a medical error that has resulted in paralysis or death or other unfortunate results”.
“If you examine the stories closely you find that these vast sums are for victims made paraplegic, grievous bodily harm, brain damage, an amputation or any lasting mutilation where a person’s ability to earn a living has been affected. In many if these cases the monetary amount being awarded in no way compensates for the damage that has been suffered”.
But nevertheless it is always worth checking to see if the other party has a case to answer, according to Donal. “We offer a free consultation as a first off to examine a client’s situation and decide if it is worthwhile to undertake their case and get a justified financial compensation”.
