Clinical Negligence

When a medical mistake occurs it can have a devastating impact upon the patient and their loved ones, affecting not only their health but potentially their personal and working life also. Our team of specialists will ease the burden during this difficult time.

Clinical & medical negligence claims arise as a result of healthcare professionals acting against the interests of your health or failing to act at all. Mistakes can arise at the diagnosis, treatment or surgical stage. Our specialist lawyers have dealt with thousands of claims against both the NHS and private practice.
