Our firm has acted on behalf of many plaintiffs who have been the victim of medical mishap.
Whether this involves questioning medical treatment in either civil litigation or at inquests – or in making representations to professional bodies – MacGuill & Company has a thorough understanding of the practical and legal issues.
We also have extensive experience defending the rights of patients in therapeutic settings, including the treatment of physical ailments and psychiatric conditions.
We are supported in this work by health professionals from outside the jurisdiction, who are in a position to provide objective and independent review in order to assess whether or not there has been a failure in the standard of care.
James MacGuill has been a chair of the Mental Health Tribunals for a number of years. Rory Eakin has represented detained persons before the Mental Health (Criminal Law) Review Board and is on its panel of representatives.
