Our clinical negligence team provide expert legal advice and assistance to those who have suffered personal injury as a result of substandard levels of medical treatment or care.
Discuss Your Case with Expert SolicitorsWe offer a free initial advice, either by telephone or in person with a qualified solicitor to discuss your claim. If we consider the claim may have merits, we would arrange with you to obtain all relevant medical records. These will then be considered thoroughly, and we will provide a written advice following review of those medical records. We will consider claims following treatment at hospital, your doctor’s surgery, from your chemist or pharmacist, and following private cosmetic treatment.
Types of Clinical NegligenceThe scenarios we most commonly advise on include:
- Failure to diagnose or of misdiagnosis e.g. cancer.
- Adverse outcomes following cosmetic procedures.
- Post-operative complications following surgery.
- Consent issues, whether consent for treatment has been correctly obtained, and/or inappropriate treatment given.
Time Limits on ClaimsClaims arising out of clinical negligence must be submitted within a specific time period. This is usually three years from the date of the substandard treatment or procedure. Where the claim involves a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, then the claim has to be brought three years from the date the patient was aware, or should have been aware of the potential negligence.
