Clinical Negligence

The Directorate is one of the leading practices in Northern Ireland in the field of clinical negligence. It provides a comprehensive service in all areas of clinical negligence, representing Trusts and Boards, providing specialist legal advice and also representing clients at Inquests. In addition, DLS offers assistance with training by giving lectures to medical staff and maintaining an extensive database on claims. Working in co-operation with clients and their senior medical personnel, DLS manages claims and holds regular review meetings with clients.

DLS is conscious of the escalating number of such claims and the consequent increasing costs and, therefore, seeks to assist clients in taking preventative measures to reduce the potential for claims.
