Clinical Negligence Solicitors
You’re in safe hands…
When undertaking medical treatment, we are often at our most vulnerable. Thankfully though doctors, nurses, clinicians and other healthcare professionals are on hand to help us back onto the road to recovery.
However, there are times when things don’t go to plan and this can result in a case of clinical negligence. If you have suffered an injury due to either the wrong, delayed or inadequate treatment, there may be a case to answer.
Clinical negligence can occur in any healthcare setting, whether it be at your GP’s practice, an NHS hospital, private clinic, dental practice or even pharmacy.
Common examples of clinical negligence include:
- Delayed diagnosis or treatment
- Incorrect diagnosis
- Wrongfully dispensed prescriptions
- Wrongful birth
- Neglect while in hospital or residential care home
- Inadequate after-care following weight loss surgery
- Sudden and unexpected death
Clinical negligence claims are often complex and no two cases are ever the same. Details which may seem inconsequential to you may actually be significant to us and your case, which is why we take the time to listen and understand your case. We find this approach not only improves your chance of success, but highlights sooner those instances where there is no case to answer.
The team of skilled legal advisors are experienced in dealing with all aspects of clinical negligence. They routinely attend client meetings, court hearings, inquests and conferences with counsel. Dealing with claims of all kinds, from those worth a few thousand pounds to those worth seven figures, the team are extremely well placed to advise you about the care you have received, uncover evidence of wrong-doing and ensure that you are fairly compensated. Claims arise from life changing mistakes in care and in return, claimants can receive life changing amounts of compensation.
According to the Legal 500, the team is described as:
"(...) a specialist clinical negligence department with Martin Bradbury at the helm. Road accident and criminal assault injury specialist Simon Rowley ‘has a very strong ability of putting clients at ease’.
