Brain Injury

Medical Negligence
  • Our Experience

    We have long experience of acting for victims of accidents which cause Brain Injury.  Coping with an acquired Brain Injury is very challenging, not only for the victim, but also for the victims family and friends.  It is also very challenging to act for someone with an acquired Brain Injury.  Often there is a total loss of memory and it is crucial to act very quickly to preserve evidence whether it be physical evidence or witness evidence.

    A particular skill set may be needed to reconstruct events and the investigation stage of these cases is often the most crucial.  Having a refined network of specialist professional support is essential.  James has had training in forensic accident investigation from a former member of the UK Police Accident Investigation Unit.  Although its not a formal qualification, he has found that it always results in a  head start when it comes to gathering in and preserving the evidence necessary to succeed in a case, especially where the victim cannot remember what happened.

  • We have a unique approach to Medical Negligence Law. We are completely independent of the Medical Profession. We have developed our own independent panel of medical experts in Ireland, the UK and the United States who only act for the plaintiff. Like us, they are completely victim focused.

    James and Emma have acted in many high profile cases, if you would like to discuss your case and compare it to the many cases that James has been involved in, please call for a consultation appointment.
