Medical Negligence Claims
Medical negligence or medical malpractice is a legal cause of action that occurs when a medical or health care professional deviates from standards in his or her profession, thereby causing injury to a patient.

Sheila Cooney and the team at Tallans have been working on medical negligence cases since the term ‘medical negligence’ was coined back in the 1980s.
Med neg, as it’s often referred as, is hard to prove, however it has been established in many, many cases through the years.
Sheila’s knowledge about medical negligence is incredibly vast. Even before her time on the Hep C Compensation Tribunal, she was an experienced personal injury litigator. In fact, that was one of the reasons why she was chosen as the first solicitor to be on the Hepatitis C Compensation Tribunal.
If you feel that you have suffered as a result of sub-standard treatment, then please Talk to Tallans.
