What is medical negligence?

Doctors, nurses, dentists and all other healthcare professionals have a duty to look after you and treat you to an accepted medical standard. If they fail to provide you with appropriate treatment and you suffer an injury as a result, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

How can we help?

Our specialist solicitors provide advice to clients and their families who have had life-changing injuries. We provide guidance and support in seeking answers as to what went wrong, obtaining justice and fighting for financial compensation.

What will it cost to bring a claim?

Claims for medical negligence are usually funded through a “No Win, No Fee” arrangement, also known as Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). This means that there is no financial risk you for making a claim and there is nothing to pay up front.

Legal Aid is also still available for a small number of claims involving brain injuries sustained by babies at birth. You solicitor will discuss funding of your case with you in more detail.

What can I expect?

When you contact us we will take a history of your complaint, details of the injury you have sustained and of the impact this has had on you. We will then assess your options and provide you with advice on the way forward based on the information provided. Your solicitor will guide you through the legal process to make it as easy for you as possible, and we will seek to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
