What is the Difference Between Accident and Negligence?

While the terms ‘accident’ and ‘negligence’ are often used interchangeably, they are distinctly different in a legal context. An accident is an unexpected event that leads to injury or loss but occurs without intent. Negligence, on the other hand, involves a breach of duty or a failure to provide an adequate standard of care, leading to injury or harm. It is essential to establish negligence rather than an unfortunate accident for a successful A&E negligence claim. At Berwick Solicitors, we help you differentiate between these terms, thereby strengthening your case.

Proving Medical Negligence in Ireland

So how does one go about proving medical negligence in Ireland? The process involves establishing three key elements: a duty of care, a breach of that duty and resultant harm. Medical professionals owe a duty of care to their patients and the failure to uphold this standard can be seen as a breach, which needs to be substantiated with evidence. Documented medical records, expert opinions and witness statements often form the crux of such evidence.

At Berwick Solicitors, we guide you through the complicated maze of legal and medical jargon, assisting you in gathering the necessary evidence. Our skilled solicitors consult with medical experts to ensure that your case is backed by solid professional opinions.
