Support for you
We regularly represent clients in medical negligence claims where injuries have occurred which could potentially have been avoided by better or alternative medical treatment and care.
If you or your child has sustained an injury during pregnancy or childbirth we are here to help. Drawing upon years of unrivalled experience our specialist medical negligence solicitors can ensure that a thorough investigation is undertaken into the circumstances of your case with a view to taking forward a compensation claim, making sure that you receive the closure and financial support you are entitled to and need.
We have established relationships with renowned medical experts in all relevant areas of medical practice such as obstetrics, midwifery, neonatology, paediatric neurology and neuroradiology. We always ensure the medical evidence used in your case is of the highest standard and that the experts we engage have the expertise and knowledge to support your claim effectively.
We recognise the very real difficulties that exist in caring for an injured child. Not least difficulties accessing ongoing medical treatment, care and support, education, therapy and equipment.
In cases where liability is resolved, we will always seek interim payments at an early stage to ensure access to such treatment, support and assistance. Our education specialists and community care team are also here to advise and provide assistance in securing all requisite NHS and Local Authority care and support during the continuance of your claim.
We are also able to offer our clients in an appropriate case a specialist ‘immediate needs assessment’ service.
If you believe that you or someone you know has suffered as a result of medical negligence please contact Tim Spring. We deal with clients throughout the country and we will visit you at your home, hospital or rehabilitation unit.
