Medical Negligence

For the past 35 years, our esteemed medical negligence solicitors, Michael Boylan and Gillian O’Connor, have demonstrated remarkable success in numerous medical negligence cases on behalf of patients and their families throughout Ireland. As a foundational member of our firm, Michael Boylan has been notably instrumental in pioneering this field, achieving a historic victory with the first successful birth injury/Cerebral Palsy lawsuit against an Irish maternity hospital. The pivotal case of Dunne (an infant) vs. The National Maternity Hospital in 1989 set a precedent, establishing the standards for medical negligence law that continue to guide the legal framework within which medical negligence solicitors and courts operate. These principles, upheld through initial trials, appeals, and retrials, are still of paramount importance and are referenced and applied daily by medical negligence solicitors and courts across Ireland.

Michael Boylan has been a pioneering figure in the field of medical negligence law in Dublin, having established and developed the city's first successful team of medical negligence solicitors within a general law firm. His leadership spanned many years, during which he consistently pushed for advancement and refinement in this specialised area of law. Recognising the benefits of a focused approach, Michael established a law firm in 2018 dedicated exclusively to medical negligence litigation, recruiting a team of like-minded expert litigators. This firm stands out for its singular dedication to litigation, particularly in medical and professional negligence, ensuring that their expertise is concentrated and unmatched.

The firm's ethos is grounded in providing victims of medical accidents with the highest quality legal representation. Our team of specialist medical negligence solicitors is deeply committed to securing just and fair outcomes for our clients. We don't shy away from challenging cases, no matter the complexity, because our goal is to make a tangible, positive impact on the lives of those who have suffered due to failings in the healthcare system. Understanding the lack of civil legal aid for victims of medical negligence in Ireland, and the scarcity of skilled solicitors capable of handling complex cases, we strive to ensure that our clients receive the access to justice they deserve. Led by Michael Boylan, our firm stands as an advocate for vulnerable patients who have been let down by medical care, determined to fight for their rights and well-being.

We recognise the significant toll that a medical mishap can take on an individual's physical health, emotional state, and financial stability. Our team of medical negligence solicitors is dedicated to providing a service that minimises stress and complexity, ensuring that the legal process is managed as smoothly and efficiently as possible for the victims and their families.

Our primary goal extends beyond securing rightful compensation; we strive to deliver clear explanations for the events that led to your distress and to hold responsible parties accountable for their actions. Our medical negligence solicitors are driven by a firm belief that every individual—man, woman, or child—who has suffered due to medical negligence deserves access to justice. We are committed to providing legal representation that is equal to, if not surpassing, the caliber afforded to state entities, hospital boards, and medical professionals.

Our firm stands on the principle that access to justice is a basic right for all, not a privilege reserved for a few. Our medical negligence solicitors are dedicated to upholding this right for every client we represent.
