Clinical Negligence

Clinical negligence, or medical negligence as it is also known, is the area of law dedicated to helping people who have suffered as a result of a failing by a member of the medical profession. This can be, for example, a doctor, nurse, dentist, chiropractor or physiotherapist. All of these people must to carry out their roles with the 'appropriate level of care' and a failure to do so can often lead to serious and lasting damage.

A clinical negligence claim can arise from a variety of different situations - from a failure to diagnose a condition or misdiagnosis, failure to explain the possible outcomes or side effects of a treatment, surgical errors, medication errors and avoidable problems at childbirth which have resulted in injuries to either or both the mother and the child.

Both private practices and the NHS can be at fault and our dedicated team can help with claims relating to both private medical treatments and NHS treatments.

Our specialist clinical negligence team can help you through the difficult time with sensitivity and professionalism. We can talk through your needs with you, discuss with you whether you have a legitimate claim and explain and guide you through the process of claiming compensation.

There is also 'no win no fee' funding available for this type of legal work and we will explain to you how this funding can be made available to you.
