Wrongful death claims
If a patient dies as a result of medical negligence, a claim can be brought by the surviving members of the victim’s family. Claims can arise in a variety of different clinical settings. Claims can be brought under the Law Reform (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1934 and the Fatal Accidents Act 1976.
