The firm of O’Shea Russell Solicitors handles cases of misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, childbirth injuries, medication errors, anesthetic errors, surgical mishaps, failure to secure Informed Consent, MRSA and other infections and procedural errors.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss their individual circumstances with those who believe that they have been injured. We appreciate that those injured through Medical Negligence or substandard treatment need an honest and clear understanding as to why the injury occurred, have a desire to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future and want Medical Professionals and Organisations to take responsibility for their actions and seek to improve.
