Clinical or medical negligence is the field of law that represents people who have suffered due to failings on the part of the medical profession. The fault could lie with a GP, doctor, surgeon, nurse, midwife, anaesthetist, dentist, optician, phycologist or any other medical professional.


To make a clinical negligence claim, we need to prove that a healthcare professional failed in their duty of care, and also that their actions (or lack of actions) caused avoidable harm.


There are strict time limitations when pursuing a claim so you do need to act fast. You have only three years to bring a claim (from the date of the negligence or the date of knowledge of the negligence).


How much compensation you receive for a successful medical negligence claim depends on the particular injury you have suffered and your situation before the injury, so in order for us to advise further you will need to speak to an expert.


Call us on 01256 844888, email enquiries@lambbrooks.com or speak to our Live Chat assistant on our website at any time.


We understand that you may be nervous to make a claim or find it difficult talking about your personal experiences and medical history. Be assured that our team handle calls and enquiries very sensitively, ensuring that your personal information is kept strictly confidential and always providing the care and support you need.
