Medical negligence

Not receiving proper medical care can have damaging consequences and often results in serious injuries.

If you have been the victim of a medical accident or consider your health care provider to have been negligent, we understand the serious impact it may have on you or your loved ones, and we treat all matters with the utmost sensitivity.

Cases of medical negligence (also known as Clinical Negligence) require expert legal advice. Medical Negligence claims are highly complex and you will need a Solicitor who understands the medical and legal issues to ensure you receive the full compensation you are entitled to.

Our Medical Negligence team are experts, covering claims in respect of private or NHS treatment against all health care providers.

We can act on behalf of clients nationwide and pursue most claims on a No Win No Fee basis.

We treat all matters with the utmost sensitivity and care, and we encourage you to speak to a member of our Team about your medical negligence enquiry. You can contact our Paralegals, who are all part of our New Enquiry Team, via the direct lines below.

We can assist you with claims against:

Simply showing something has gone wrong with your treatment is not enough on its own to win compensation. You must be able to prove that:
