Hello, this is Jim and I am a dual-qualified lawyer (UK & Republic of Ireland) happy to help you today.
Sorry to hear this - what has happened as a result of the negligence?
Thank you and sorry to read that - my view is there is a case of negligence against the hospital in that they breached their duty of care to you. You will need a law firm to handle the negligence case for you though - they are complex and you need their expertise to build the claim and ensure nothing is missed out.
I can recommend www.mlaw.ie who are excellent - they have a good track record in negligence claims against hospitals (e.g. defective hip procedures and other medical negligence matters). They are based in Dublin and Carlow - I'm not sure where you are based?
Normally there would need to be a physical and/or non-physical injury (e.g. stress, a psychological injury of some sort) to claim injury damages. Reading your document though it sounds like you went through unnecessary pain and suffering?.
The first law I mentioned would probably want to see you in person which is a lot of travelling from Mayo. So I would recommend these instead :
It's worth investigating further though - I would think you would be entitled to some damages from the hospital and an apology.
Plus the levels of damages in Ireland are quite a lot higher than in the UK.
I hope this helps? If you would kindly leave me a 5 star rating (at the top of your screen), any follow up questions are welcomed and I will be credited for helping you today.
