We all trust in the medical profession to look after us, but sometimes errors occur or this trust may be misplaced resulting in a medical negligence claim. There may be an incorrect or late diagnosis, errors may occur during surgery or a child may suffer injury due to problems surrounding his/her birth.

If you or a member of your family have been unfortunate enough to have suffered an injury as a result of substandard medical treatment you have received, our specialist solicitors can assist you in bringing a medical negligence compensation claim against the people and/or organisations responsible. We have obtained strong results in cases against a wide variety of medical professionals and organisations, including NHS hospital trusts, GPs, privately practising doctors and nurses and pharmacists.
We will proactively and sympathetically progress your compensation claim and will listen to your practical concerns.
