Tim has dealt with many cases involving obstetrics, serious birth injuries and claims arising out of treatment immediately post accident, for example orthopaedic injuries and prescribing mishaps.

He deals with claims involving a wide variety of health professionals such as general practitioners, dentists, surgeons and nurses. He is particularly adept at cutting through complex medical evidence and identifying key issues, including allegations of negligent or unnecessary treatment and a failure to obtain consent.

Fatal accidents and claims arising out of negligently performed cosmetic surgery are other areas of his practice.

He deals with Inquests relating to deaths in hospital or other care institutions including those involved with mental health.

Inquests, Public Inquiries & Coronial Law

Tim has over 30 years experience representing a broad range of clients but is now primarily engaged in serious trauma cases and cases involving clinical negligence. His involvement in these cases has led to him representing clients at Inquests in both these areas of law but he has also developed wider experience of Inquest and Coronial Law generally where he has an established and impressive reputation.

Examples of recent Inquests include representing the deceased’s family regarding the treatment of a road accident victim who developed a pulmonary embolism, the suicide of a resident at a care home as well as numerous road accidents involving cyclists and motorcyclists.

Tim has also represented parties in inquests concerning accidents at work and the HSE. Recent cases have involved an explosion at a cement works and electrocution in the loft of industrial premises.

His practice includes complex cases involving clients with brain injuries with consideration of children’s special educational needs and wider litigation involving local education authorities.
