HSE Claims: A solicitor guided process in Dublin & across Ireland

3 minute read

Ireland is indebted to the Health Service Executive’s (HSE) talented healthcare workers who strive to look after us when we need them most. Although we all value them, we also must recognise that the systems they work in make mistakes sometimes.

Unfortunately, when this happens in the context of healthcare, the consequences can be significant for the patient. When that happens, Augustus Cullen Law is here to help.

We are a leading firm of HSE claims solicitors based in Dublin, Wicklow & Wexford

Our unwavering commitment lies in creating a meaningful impact for patients in need of assistance, who have suffered injuries due to shortcomings of HSE. We are committed to and not afraid of fighting meritorious cases no matter how difficult and complex. 

Our team of HSE negligence experts will seek to secure you compensation for things such as:

  • Your pain and suffering.
  • Professional care, assistive technologies and home alterations.
  • Ongoing medical care and rehabilitation.

This list is not exhaustive. Your solicitor will argue for compensation to pay for anything you require to live the most comfortable and independent standard of living available to you.

The HSE claims process in Ireland

Our process is designed to remove the stress from your HSE claim so that you can focus on recovering. Your solicitor will keep you updated throughout the duration of your case. Unfortunately, HSE negligence cases can be complex and many of them can take years to complete. That’s why the process can be very different on a case-to-case basis.

Why instruct Augustus Cullen Law to act in your HSE claim?

Augustus Cullen Law has successfully acted in a high volume of HSE claims for patients and their families.

We have a reputation for our empathy and professionalism, earned through decades of experience. Despite the complexity associated with these types of cases, you can be assured that our solicitors will investigate all aspects of your case and act in your best interest.

Will I have to go to court for my HSE claim?

The majority of claims against HSE are settled during mediation and do not reach Court. Should your case fall within the minority that does require a Court date, you can rest assured that our team is highly experienced and will be thoroughly prepared.

How long do I have to make a HSE claim in Dublin and across Ireland?

You have a two-year window from the date of the medical negligence to begin legal proceedings. However, there are certain circumstances that may alter the start date. Unfortunately, some people are not aware that there are time restrictions for filing a HSE claim, and as a result, some cases may become ineligible for compensation.

For this reason, it is important to seek advice early.
