When a medical mistake occurs it can have a devastating impact upon you and your loved ones, affecting not only your health but potentially your personal and working life too
Clinical & medical negligence claims arise as a result of healthcare professionals acting against the interests of your health or failing to act at all. Our specialist lawyers have dealt with thousands of clinical negligence claims against both the NHS and private practices, and can also provide assistance with inquests.
Whether the medical mistreatment is at the diagnosis, treatment or surgical stage, our team of medical negligence solicitors will fight for your rights.
Our clinical and medical negligence lawyers are members of Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) and various members of the team are Law Society Accredited Clinical Negligence Panel members.
