Medical Negligence

Negligence at the hands of a medical professional can be a daunting experience. Our highly-trained medical negligence solicitors are available to guide you through your options to ensure you receive only the best possible outcome.

We seek help from doctors and hospitals at a time when we are at our most vulnerable. We turn to them for help in the hope that they can cure our suffering and the majority of the time they aid and assist us. However, when we are let down by medical professionals by their failure to treat us appropriately, it can have a devastating effect on our lives.

Medical negligence claims

Unfortunately, medical negligence claims are on the rise as radical changes and cut backs are being made in both the NHS and Private Health Sector. This is leading to just some of the many cases including:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Delays in treatment
  • Failure to treat
  • Birth injuries
  • Surgery injuries
  • Incorrect prescriptions

More often than not, when you have experienced inadequate health services you can be left with devastating life consequences, which not only affect your health and physical capabilities but also your finances.

If you have suffered as a result of poor medical attention and your trust has been broken, it can be difficult to know whom to turn to.
