Medical & clinical negligence compensation lawyers

Clinical negligence

All patients are owed a 'duty of care' by their medical practitioner. No medical treatment or surgical procedure can be guaranteed to be 100% effective, but if you suffer an injury due to the negligence of the nurse, doctor or surgeon involved, then you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries suffered.

Claiming compensation following clinical negligence

If you have been injured or are the relative of somebody who you suspect has died as a result of clinical negligence, you should not feel embarrassed or reluctant about making a claim. You have the right to seek compensation.

Compensation following clinical negligence should help to ease your suffering and help to restore your former quality of life as much as possible. It will also pay for your financial losses and rehabilitation costs if required.

Where somebody has unfortunately died because of clinical negligence, compensation can help those who were financially dependent on the person who has died.
