Most medical treatment (whether under the NHS or in the private sector) is of a very high standard, however, there are times when this is not the case and mistakes do happen. These are rare and unfortunate events, which will often leave families requiring support and financial assistance.


To make a Clinical Negligence claim, it will need to be proved that the healthcare professional failed in their duty of care, and also that their actions (or lack of actions) caused avoidable harm.


If you have concerns about your medical treatment or the treatment of someone you know it is sensible to obtain legal advice quickly, as there are strict time limits for bringing a claim.


Lamb Brooks have a highly experienced and dedicated team who can assist. Over the last few years we have worked on many cases as diverse as the failure of an A&E department to correctly identify and treat a patient’s heart attack, to a GP who failed to arrange an oncology referral leading to the delay in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.


At Lamb Brooks, our specialist team will speak with you confidentially and free of charge. We will confirm whether you have a potential claim and we can then either help you consider making a complaint about the care or act on your behalf. Most claims are handled under a Conditional Fee Agreement (no win, no fee).
