Medical negligence

For the majority of the time, the treatment and care you receive from doctors, nurses and other medical practitioners will be from dedicated and diligent professionals.  Occasionally, things can and do go wrong and when they do the effects can be devastating.

If the treatment or care you received from a medical professional fell below the standard you expected and this resulted in injury or suffering then you may have a claim for medical negligence compensation.

We deal with claims involving:

  • Hospital negligence
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Surgery claims
  • Birth injury claims
  • Treatment or surgery resulting in otherwise avoidable death.

We may still be able to help if the negligence you suffered is not covered by one of the above categories.

Negligence can take any form and could be a misdiagnosis, a failure to spot a medical condition or a delayed diagnosis. At the worst end of the scale it could be a surgery that was negligently performed and resulted in avoidable suffering or death.

Claims for medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence) need to be brought within 3 years of the date of injury or when the claimant first discovered the injury or condition resulting from the neglect.

Medical negligence claims are often complex requiring expert medical evidence on technical medical issues. For this reason these cases take much longer to reach a conclusion. All of this means it is vital to have an experienced lawyer on your side.

We accept initial instructions in clinical negligence claims on a private fee paying basis. If after initial investigation the claim appears to be a sufficiently strong one, we can offer a “no win no fee” arrangement.
