Helping rebuild your life after a medical negligence injury
If you have been injured as a result of medical negligence you may be entitled to claim compensation. Our team of experienced, medical negligence solicitors will provide you with expert legal advice and guidance and also provide much needed practical and emotional support. We aim to ensure healthcare providers learn from your experience to actively improve patient care for others.
On your side
If you have received medical treatment and you think mistakes may have been made, you may be able to claim compensation. Errors in medical treatment are termed medical negligence, and can occur during any stage of the care process during diagnosis, treatment, surgery or aftercare.
Types of medical negligence claims
There are many areas where medical negligence claims arise including (but not limited to):
- Amputation claims
- Birth injury claims
- Brain injury claims
- Cauda Equina claims
- Medical misdiagnosis claims
- Other types of medical negligence claims
- Information and support for your claim
We recognise that no amount of money can ever undo the damage caused to you by serious injury as a result of medical negligence. However, compensation can make a huge difference when rebuilding a life.
