Clinical negligence claims
We often put our lives in the hands of medical professionals without thinking twice about it. Thankfully, the vast majority of care is of the highest standard, but occasionally, things go wrong.
This complex area of law relates to the standard of care that should have been provided to you by doctors and other healthcare professionals. You could have a clinical negligence case if:
- A duty was owed to you by the healthcare professional or organisation in question
- This duty was ‘breached’
- The breach resulted in harm (which was foreseeable and resulted in damages, injury or loss)
It can be hard to know whether a duty of care was breached in your case. That’s where we can help. We will investigate the care you received and the injuries that you sustained. We can then make an informed decision as to whether or not you have grounds to pursue a clinical negligence claim. If so, we’ll manage everything for you, leaving you free to focus on your recovery.

We understand that not everyone wants to make a claim. Sometimes it is enough to hold somebody accountable, get an apology, or simply ensure that similar mistakes don’t happen again.
