Medical negligence claims arise from injuries sustained as a result of negligent medical treatment or care. These claims are more complex that claims for Personal Injury and are not dealt with by the Injuries Board.
Medical negligence claims can arise from the following:
- A medical professional failing to diagnose an illness or injury
- A medical professional inaccurately diagnosing an illness or injury
- A medical professional belatedly diagnosing an illness or injury
- A mistake in the administration of medication
- A mistake in the performance in a procedure or operation.
Medical negligence claims are subject to the Statute of Limitations and must be brought within 2 years of the date of knowledge of the medical negligence. In the case of a child, the 2 year period does not begin until the child reaches the age of 18. Normally the claim is brought by the Guardian on behalf of the child if the child is under the age of 18.
