Cases of defamation, slander and libel have become more common in Hong Kong nowadays. This may be due to the advances in information technology in recent years. It becomes very easy for a wrongdoer to “publish” a defamatory remark or allegation against another party through the internet and cell phone applications such as whatsapp and sms. The spread of such defamatory remark sometimes reach phenomenal scale through successive hyperlinks and quoting.

In a busy and traffic congested city like Hong Kong accidents are bound to occur. Injuries and death occurring as a result of accidents caused by negligence or reckless conduct may in turn give rise to claim for damages. As the time limit for bringing legal action in case of a personal injury claim is only three years from the date of the accident (as opposed to the usual six years limit generally applicable to most other civil claims), it is important to seek legal and medical advice as soon as practicable after an accident causing injury or even, death. Another reason for taking prompt action is the need to gather the evidence in support of the claim. With each passing day the chance of getting reliable evidence will diminish. Our firm provides comprehensive services to our clients involved accident claim cases either as the victim or the paying party. We will be glad to assist in providing legal opinion on the merits of potential claims and different aspects of a damage claim arising from an accident, for instance, in the assessment of damage for “PSLA”, namely, compensation for pain, suffering and loss of amenities.
The advance of medical science improves life generally. However, in some unfortunate situations, the proliferation of medical or quasi medical services has been accompanied by professional negligence by act or omission on the part of medical practitioner or paramedic or otherwise by service which falls beneath the standard of practice acceptable or prevalent in the medical community.
