Sadly, doctors sometimes do make mistakes.
Medical negligence can range from hospital procedures going wrong to complex areas like informed consent.
Investigating a claim takes time and money. Our first aim is to establish if you have a realistic case as soon as possible.
We consult specialised medical experts who can tell us at an early stage whether a case is pursuable or not.
If there is a case we start by trying to negotiate an out of court settlement, again using our years of experience to obtain the best possible outcome.
If a case does have to come to court then our litigation expertise comes into play. We will often be prepared to act if Legal Aid is available; occasionally we will act on a “no win-no fee basis.”
Many of our clients have been through a difficult experience. For us a good result is more than mere compensation; it’s one that makes a difference and helps clients get on with their lives.
