Medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence) is a breach of duty of care by healthcare professionals.

It’s quite simple. When you’re treated by someone working in the healthcare profession, you’re embarking on a contract of sorts – duty of care, it’s called – where you’re entrusting them to give you the best possible medical attention and care they can provide. Whether it’s a doctor or surgeon, a dentist, pharmacist or care home attendant, all of them are bound by law to attend to your needs to the best of their abilities.

And most of the time, that’s exactly what you get. But sadly, it’s not always the case. You’ve heard the horror stories, you’ve seen the reports on the news. There are instances where people have suffered from medical negligence at the hands of the medical profession, and with all the radical changes and cuts happening in both the NHS and the private sector, medical negligence claims are most certainly not going to go away.

So that’s where we come in. We’ve got a specialist team of medical negligence solicitors on hand who know everything there is to know about medical negligence claims. Just as importantly, however, they’re approachable, sympathetic people you can really talk to and trust. No one understands better than they do how upsetting and traumatising it can be when a healthcare professional gets it terribly wrong.

In this section of the website, we’ll be looking at some of the major areas of medical negligence claims that our team frequently deal with:

  • Dental Claims
  • Surgical Errors

  • Ophthalmic Claims
