General Practice Medical Claims – Did Your GP Fail You?

We all need to visit a General Practitioner for a variety of reasons throughout our lives, whether minor or major. These medical professionals are trusted implicitly with all our health queries and problems. We visit our GP for advice and peace of mind and for referral for other medical procedures when necessary. Above all, we expect procedures to be followed and to be given the care and medical attention we both need and deserve.  

When such care falls short of standards or is categorised as negligent, you are also entitled to seek appropriate redress via the judicial system. This may result in a claim for compensation for medical negligence. The team at O’Hare Solicitors is experienced in dealing with medical negligence in General Practitioner care. We have dealt with many medical cases which have resulted in successful claims for compensation. If you feel that you have been the victim of negligent general practitioner care, then read how you may be able to take action.

Can I claim compensation for negligent GP care?

If you or a family member have experienced care which has fallen short of the standards expected of a GP, which has caused injury to your health, or long-term medical issues, then you may be entitled to compensation.

At O’Hare Solicitors, we want to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve for the trauma and medical negligence you have experienced. So, whether you have experienced short term or long-term health issues as a result of sub-standard GP care, we can help.

At O’Hare Solicitors, our medical legal advisers can assess whether or not you have a case and are entitled to compensation. We can help you to formulate your case and timelines for the treatment you have received or failed to receive.

I couldn’t recommend Andrea Bell enough, as a first time house buyer I was pretty clueless to the whole process. Andrea guided me through, responded to my emails extremely quickly put my mind at ease and didn’t make me feel silly with all my questions. She made a process that could have been very stressful very easy. Thank you!

— Zara Millar

If I could rate Andrea any higher than 5 stars I would. Andrea Bell helped me with the sale and purchase of my new home. Andrea was fabulous to work with, she was never too busy to answer any questions I had and kept me up to date throughout. She went over and beyond working tirelessly to ensure I completed and get into my new home during these challenging times. I can't thank her enough for all of her help. I would have no hesitation in working with Andrea again in the future and would recommend her to everyone for any conveyancing needs!

Myself and my young daughter were recently in a car accident and subsequently put in contact with O’Hare Solicitors. Naill O’Hare dealt with personal injury claims for both of us. Naill could not have made the process any easier, taking all the necessary steps and keeping in contact with me at every stage. Even during the recent lockdown situation Niall took the time to contact me with updates whilst working remotely. Naill was very helpful and professional throughout the entire process and negotiated great settlements for both of us in an extremely timely manner. I would have no hesitation in using Niall and O’Hare Solicitors again and would highly recommend to all.

I cannot recommend Andrea Bell and O'Hare Solicitors highly enough. My husband and I used Andrea for both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new house. Although our intended house purchase fell through, and we had to start again looking for a new home, Andrea pulled it all together for us and kept us focused through all the turmoil. Andrea is also the reason that today, coming out of lockdown we are in our new home 3 months. She worked tirelessly to get contracts signed, funds confirmed and keys exchanged while every company was shutting down and the country was going into lockdown. A true professional.

— Avril McDowell

Can't Thank Andrea Bell and Gemma White enough for the help and guidance they have given me during the purchase of my first home. Professional and quick to reply to messages and answer any questions, they made the process easy. Would recommend to anyone seeking a conveyancing service.

A professional team on top of their game who will take you by the hand and guide you through the legal system and achieve the best outcome for you the client. I have used many local law firms for various reasons and found Colm Owens and his colleagues to be leagues ahead, totally transparent easily contactable and always deal with you in a friendly down to earth manner but not afraid to show their teeth when the pressures on in a court of law. Would highly recommend if you want someone in your corner with both guts and integrity.

— Sam Davidson

Absolutely without doubt the best legal service I have received over the years. Andrea Bell provides a flawless guidance that will easily meet and exceed anyone’s expectations. Purchasing a property through the turbulent past few months, Andrea went above and beyond to steady the process. I can wholeheartedly recommend O’Hare and indeed Andrea.

— Tony Batt

Gemma White was fantastic support in helping me with the purchase of my new home. Always at hand and answered my queries promptly with professionalism and warmth. Would definitely recommend.

Andrea Bell was our solicitor who dealt with both the sale of our old home and purchase of our new home. Andrea was fabulous to work with, she was never too busy to return a call and answer any questions and was quick to respond to emails. She made sure the process was as smooth and stress free as possible. I would have no hesitation in working with Andrea again in the future and would recommend her for any conveyancing needs.
