Recent Transaction – Complex Medical Negligence Action

Sherwin O’Riordan represented a Plaintiff in a complex medical negligence action in 2016; Thomas Hill-v- Health Service Executive [2016] IEHC 746. The Plaintiff was successful in his negligence claim against the HSE for significant disability caused by the accidental tear of his ureter while removing a kidney stone in 1998.

The judge acknowledged that the ongoing chronic pain and psychological problems Mr. Hill continues to suffer entitled him to substantial damages.
