Medical negligence can cause great physical and emotional turmoil for the victim and their family. This can often be magnified where the victim is a child. We inevitably place our children’s safety in the hands of medics such as doctors, nurses, surgeons and dentists.

If you suspect that your child has suffered injury or illness through negligence on the part of a medical professional, please contact us for advice. (Please see our Pregnancy and Birth Claims should the injury or illness have been caused at Birth).

Disputes can arise as to whether a form of treatment is in the best interests of the child patient. Parents can exercise their right to consent to treatment on behalf of their child. They can also refuse treatment. In such circumstances, disputes can arise as a treating doctor is not obliged to accept a parent's wishes if he/she feels that doing so would not be in the best interests of the child. If a dispute cannot be resolved, it may be necessary to seek the assistance of the Court and legal representation will be needed.
