Clinical/Medical Negligence

Trustpilot 5 stars
Home » Personal Legal Services » Medical Negligence Claims

Errors made by healthcare professionals in the care, treatment or advice they provide to you may be considered negligent if it can be shown that no other reasonable healthcare provider would have acted in the same way. For example – you would have received different care, treatment or advice.

To be successful in Medical Negligence claims, you will also have to prove that you have suffered harm over and above what you would have suffered in any event. That is to say that you have suffered as a result of the healthcare professionals’ failings and not solely as a result of the injury itself.



How can we help?

We offer no-obligation initial consultation where we will discuss the details of the care provided to you. If we consider that you have a potential claim, we are likely to be able to offer you a no-win, no-fee agreement for us to obtain your medical records and investigate the care provided to you.

Once it has been established that the care provided was negligent and you have suffered harm, we will approach the Defendants with the allegations of negligence and pursue your claim until its conclusion.
