Medical Negligence Compensation Claims

For the last 25 years, Bolt Burdon Kemp’s specialist medical solicitors have consistently achieved outstanding results for adults and children who have suffered serious injury due to substandard medical treatment.

We offer exceptional direct access to our highly-motivated and committed solicitors who work closely with claimants and their families to guide them sensitively through the litigation process whilst proactively progressing their compensation claims.

We understand that no amount of money can ever undo the devastation caused by serious injury. However, we are experts at fighting for compensation that will make it easier to manage the resulting consequences and improve quality of life.

We will ensure that you receive not only the very best legal advice but also much needed practical support to help you to adapt and cope. Whether you require financial assistance to fund medical treatment, care, therapy, essential equipment, adaptations to your home or to alleviate financial hardship where you have had to stop work, we will seek interim payments for you as soon as is practicably possible.

Our focus is on facilitating specialist rehabilitation at the earliest possibly opportunity (rather than following the conclusion of the claim) as we appreciate that this has greater potential to improve your outcome. We have arrangements with high quality providers of medical and other rehabilitation services to swiftly provide you with the vital support you need
