Medical negligence

Expert guidance and support from trusted medical negligence solicitors

Understanding medical negligence

Our skilled team are here to help and support you throughout your claim and beyond.

We know it can be daunting to pursue a claim against the NHS or a private doctor. This can feel even more formidable when you are still suffering long-lasting effects of your injury, and your livelihood has been impacted as a result.

If you have been a victim of medical negligence, our solicitors can help provide you with personalised legal advice to get the compensation you deserve.

How our medical negligence solicitors can help you

Our multi-disciplinary nature means we’ve got your back.

Through our medical (or clinical) negligence team’s long experience, we know the stresses placed upon the victim and the family. We work closely with you and your loved ones to assist with your rehabilitation, ongoing care and, if necessary, help appoint a case manager.

Beyond the initial claim, we can also advise on a range of additional issues such as wills, trusts, court of protection and conveyancing to deal with all aspects of your life post-injury.

Our approach

Personal touch and attention to detail.

Our approach to funding claims is flexible. We act for many clients under conditional fee (‘no win no fee’) agreements. As a multi-disciplinary firm, we can draw on expertise from other departments to best support our clients. For example, our specialist education team assists brain-injured clients in securing appropriate education, health and care plans.

We always aim to secure interim payments at the earliest opportunity to help pay for ongoing rehabilitation and to repay the victim and their
family for any expenses they have incurred as a result of their injury.
