Clinical and Medical Negligence

Medical or clinical negligence is the term used to describe substandard or negligent healthcare or treatment which directly results in injury or additional illness. By way of example, it can mean a delayed or wrong diagnosis, failed surgery or inadequate nursing care, any of which may support a legal claim.

Specialising in medical negligence, the team are there to advise and assist with your healthcare concern and discuss all options open to you.

Services

  • Complaints
    We provide assistance with writing and pursuing complaints. Our fees are competitive and discussed and agreed in advance. We believe it is important to ask the correct questions in order to investigate your concerns fully and provide answers and explanations as to the care given and decisions made.
  • Reports
    When concerns are raised as to particular aspects of care or treatment, it is often appropriate and necessary to seek an independent medical opinion. We provide a service obtaining that opinion, and our service includes reviewing and analysing that opinion.  
  • Legal Claims
    We consider and pursue, as appropriate, clinical negligence claims. Such claims allege below standard care or treatment causing injury or illness which was otherwise avoidable.

Your Claim

If you have concerns that you or a loved one has received care or treatment that was incorrect, delayed or improperly carried out and that that has resulted in illness, injury and financial loss, you can be assured that your concerns will be discussed sympathetically and confidentially.

Funding

We will ask you whether you have any legal expenses insurance. It may be possible for you to use such cover to deal with your claim.

We can also consider whether your claim is suitable for a no win no fee agreement. Under such an agreement, we will charge for our work on your case only if you are successful. What's more, in the event of a successful claim, the majority of our charges will be paid by the defendant. Following recent changes in the law, you may now be liable for some charges, but we can guarantee that you will keep at least 75% of your compensation.
