Specialist clinical negligence solicitors in Southampton

You can make a clinical negligence claim if you believe you have received wrong, accidental or below standard medical care that has caused you avoidable physical or psychological harm or injury.

Due to the complex nature of the laws surrounding this type of compensation claim, it’s important that your clinical negligence solicitor is a specialist in the field and has tangible experience handling these complicated cases.

At Trethowans, our clinical negligence solicitors in Southampton have won numerous cases on the behalf of injured patients and have helped them to rebuild their lives, often on a no win, no fee basis. They are also panel members of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme, which recognises their expertise in clinical negligence matters.

Clare Carter, one of our specialist clinical negligence solicitors, is also a member of the AvMA clinical negligence panel. So, you can rest assured that when you choose Trethowans to represent your claim, you are in trusted, capable hands with a proven track record of success spanning more than 20 years.

When can I claim clinical negligence?

When making a clinical negligence claim you must be able to demonstrate that the treatment you received was below a reasonable standard and, because of this poor level of care, you were caused harm that could otherwise have been avoided.

Due to the huge number of medical sectors available, there are any number of ways that someone can feel they have been failed by medical staff. It is also important to note that when a loved one is not physically able or emotionally ready to make a claim, you can do so on their behalf.

Below is a list of just a few areas where we can help. If you believe you have a claim that isn’t shown, please contact our clinical negligence solicitors in Southampton today on 023 8032 1000 and they’ll be happy to discuss the viability of your case.

  • Delayed or misdiagnosis of cancer including failing to recognise symptoms and misinterpreting test results
  • Performing the wrong operation, avoidable post-op infection or leaving a foreign body inside the patient
  • Negligent dental treatment such as administering the wrong treatment and poor standard of treatment
