Our team of specialist clinical negligence solicitors have won many cases on behalf of injured patients. We can help you to bring a successful claim using our experience and expertise in clinical negligence cases.
If you have been injured as a result of negligent medical treatment, you are entitled to claim compensation. Clients sometimes hesitate to make a claim or are reluctant to pursue a case against healthcare professionals and the NHS but if your life has been affected by an avoidable medical mistake then compensation can help you rebuild your life and procedures may be changed to prevent similar incidents occurring to other patients if you pursue a claim.
We have solicitors who are panel members of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme which recognises their expertise in clinical negligence matters. Clare Carter is also a member of the AvMA clinical negligence panel.
We have experience in successfully dealing with a wide range of cases against:
- NHS Hospitals
- Private Hospitals
Potential claims need careful and detailed investigations. You have to prove that the treatment you received fell below a reasonable standard of care and that this caused you to suffer the injury. Not all unsatisfactory medical outcomes are as a result of negligence. Cases tend to be complex and bring up difficult and sensitive issues. We recognise this and deal with all cases professionally and sympathetically.
We have the specialist expertise to act for clients in these cases and obtain the best possible outcomes.
We have acted for claimants and recovered compensation for them in a wide variety of cases including:

From 1st April 2013, following reforms to Legal Aid Funding, we can only apply for funding for you from the Legal Services Commission if you have a clinical negligence case involving neurological injury at birth or within 8 weeks of birth (if you are financially eligible).
We are also able to act for clients on a no win no fee basis (also known as conditional fee agreements). Many of our clients with clinical negligence cases have conditional fee agreements with us. Please contact us to find out more.
