Clinical negligence

Video thumbnail

Trethowans has a proven track record of clinical negligence work for over 15 years, helping our clients to make claims. We have helped many clients on a no win no fee basis.

If you are thinking about making a clinical negligence claim, it is important that your lawyer is a specialist in this complex field. The legal requirements to prove a clinical negligence claim are tough and it is essential that you have a lawyer who is an expert in this specialist area of law in order to achieve a successful result.

Chambers (2017) top rank the Clinical Negligence Team in Band 1 and praise Clare Carter as a market leader for claims of birth injury and cerebral palsy.  Gavin Lane is also recognised for his handling of a broad range of catastrophic injury cases, along with the extremely experienced Chris Whiteley - who has been ranked as an Eminent Practitioner . Legal 500 (2015) also recommend "the team led by Clare Carter, who handles work including birth injury."

The Trethowans clinical negligence team has lawyers who are members of specialist panels confirming their expertise and experience in clinical negligence work.

Action against medical accidents (AVMA) is a charity for patient safety and justice which provides advice and support to people affected by medical accidents and campaigns to promote patient safety. Clare Carter is a member of the AvMA panel of specialist clinical negligence lawyers.

Law Society has a clinical negligence accreditation scheme for those lawyers who have a proven track record in clinical negligence cases and specialist knowledge in this field. Clare Carter and Chris Whiteley are accredited members.
