Clinical / Medical Negligence

Clinical and medical negligence issues occur when a healthcare professional causes injury resulting from mistakes during surgery, misdiagnosis, or treatment after deviating from expected medical standards.

Our team knows that when medical negligence occurs to you or your loved ones there can be devastating impacts. In some cases, it may be difficult to prove that there has been negligence by a healthcare professional, which is why you should contact an expert solicitor as soon as possible.

If errors have been made which have resulted in injury, we understand you will want to focus on recovering from your injuries alongside seeking the compensation that you deserve.

No Win No Fee

We offer services on a No Win, No Fee basis. This is where you can pursue a compensation claim for your injuries with the knowledge that if the claim is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay any fees.

Making a Claim

Clinical and medical negligence is typically proven by following a 3-part test:

The test looks at:

  • Whether a doctor owed a duty of care to the patient
  • Whether that duty of care was breached, and
  • as a direct result of the breach, the patient suffered harm.

If you are looking to pursue a medical negligence claim, we can advise you on the potential compensation that you may be entitled to, given the specific circumstances. 

Our team of experts can also help you to make a formal complaint alongside your claim for compensation.

Medical Negligence Claims

Medical negligence claims are commonly made when an injury or illness has deteriorated due to mistakes in surgery, mistreatment, wrong treatment, misdiagnosis, or delays in treatment.
