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. Through dedication and diligence Sherwin O’ Riordan’s litigation team delivered an effective and successful case that ultimately resulted in considerable damages being awarded to our client. The judge acknowledged that the ongoing chronic pain and psychological problems Mr. Hill continues to suffer entitled him to substantial damages. The Plaintiff was awarded €701,000, which included over €400,000 for lost earning to date and in the future, in addition to €250,000 general damages. This was a landmark case representing the epitome of legal and medical complexity and we were happy to be able to litigate this case successfully for the Plaintiff.

Elaine McNally, senior associate in the firm advised Mr. Hill.
