Clinical Negligence

Have you received substandard medical treatment?

We rely on healthcare providers to provide the right treatment when we need it. Sometimes we do not have the outcome we hoped for. This may be just as a result of the risks in the medical treatment, or it could be because the doctors or nurses have failed in their duty of care and your treatment has fallen below an acceptable standard.

 

If you are unhappy with your medical treatment, please contact one of our specialist solicitors to talk about a potential claim. We will advise you on the best way to deal with your concerns and if you may have the basis of a clinical negligence claim.

 

If in our opinion you may have a successful claim, we will need to obtain your medical records and will then ask an appropriate specialist to review the treatment and provide an opinion as to whether the healthcare provider has breached their duty of care. If there has been a breach of duty of care, we will then investigate whether this caused you injury. In some cases the medical expert will recommend treatment to improve your symptoms. We will look into the way that the injury has affected you, and prepare your claim for compensation.

 

In addition to a claim for compensation you may also be eligible for state benefits.
