Our experienced clinical negligence solicitors are devoted to working closely with claimants and their families to support them through their cases, whilst actively progressing their compensation claims.

What are the different types of medical negligence claims?

The causes of Clinical Negligence are wide ranging, but over the years our solicitors have represented clients who have successfully claimed across common areas, including:

Do I have a medical negligence claim?

If you believe that you, or anyone close to you, has suffered as a result of substandard medical treatment, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim. In order to proceed with your claim, our clinical negligence lawyers require evidence that:

  • The medical professionals who treated you breached a duty of care by following a course of action that is not supported by a responsible body of medical practitioners
  • As a result of the breach of duty, you have suffered injury and/or financial loss

How much will it cost if I decide to claim for my injury?

We work on a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement, with a success fee capped at 25% of applicable damages (compensation for pain, suffering and loss of amenity and any past losses). However, if you have legal expenses insurance, then all of your costs may be covered.

How much could I receive?

This is decided by the court and depends on the severity of your claim. You could expect anything from £1,500 in compensation for a minor head injury to millions of pounds for a serious brain injury.
