Medical Negligence

In the event you have experienced dissatisfaction with the medical profession you may be entitled to seek compensation. For example, you may have experienced a misdiagnosis or delay in treatment and we can pass you on to specialist personal injury lawyers who can assist in investigating if a mistake has been made and can advise on any potential claim you may have. It is possible to make a claim against a number of medical professionals including, a General Practitioner, hospital staff members, dental practitioners, opticians and paramedics.

A negligence claim can be raised as soon as you become aware that an error has occurred or the treatment you have received is below standard. It is usually the case that a claim can be made within 3 years of the act of negligence, yet a claim can also be considered if you only become aware of the problem further down the line.

Compensation is assessed on the loss suffered by the patient and your claim will be investigated by independent experts who will provide an unbiased judgement on their view of the treatment received.
If you require any further information on any aspect of medical negligence claims please contact us and we will refer you to a specialist personal injury lawyer. 


Often clients will ask how much compensation they are likely to receive. Valuing your compensation is calculated through a number of factors including the type of injury suffered as a result of your accident and how long the injury is likely to continue for, following the accident. The compensation claim will set out current loss of earnings, any future loss of earnings, any additional expenses such as the cost of care and assistance or expenses incurred as a result of the accident. Our specialist personal injury lawyers can assist you with calculating the likely sum you can expect to achieve if your claim is successful. 


The time period for personal injury claims can vary significantly depending on the nature of the claim, but our specialist personal injury lawyers will aim to settle your claim as efficiently as possible. The timescale can be influenced by a number of factors including how severe the accident was, and the time it takes to determine liability. In most cases claims will be settled in less than nine months.
If you require further information, please contact us and we will refer you to the specialist personal injury lawyers in our network.
