Settlement for Lady following misreading of Cervical slides

Posted in News on Wednesday, August 18th, 2021

Orla Kelly as part of the Medical Negligence Team represented a lady who was part of the 221 Cervical Check Group and who had her previous smear test misreported.  She suffered psychiatric injury and disruption to her life as part of her claim. The matter was hard fought by the two laboratories involved in the reporting of the lady’s smear test, and the HSE who had accepted primary liability for the acts of the laboratories.  The matter was set down for trial, but fortunately, we were able to conclude the matter out of Court during a day long mediation and received a sum of money to compensate the lady for her injuries.

* In contentious business, a Solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.  Many Personal Injury Solicitors portray themselves as “no win no fee Solicitors Cork”. This term can be misleading and it is essential that you discuss fees with the Personal Injury Solicitor you ultimately choose. At Cantillons Solicitors, we are entirely transparent.
