If you aren’t sure whether you have grounds for a clinical negligence claim, or are unsure as to whether your claim sits within the allowed time limit, one of our expert legal advisors can quickly provide the answer. After providing free advice initially, if we feel that you have a viable case for compensation, with your permission our experienced medical negligence solicitors will build a case for you and fight to earn the right degree of compensation for your needs and that of your family where appropriate.

Clinical negligence can have long lasting and life changing effects, often rendering victims unable to work or care for themselves. Our specialist solicitors take time to fully investigate the injuries and ensure that clients receive an appropriate level of compensation.

A clinical negligence compensation claim does more than just pay for pain and suffering, it also helps to pay for any necessary rehabilitation programs, ongoing treatment and any modifications to your home that you may need.
