Clinical negligence compensation lawyers

Clinical negligence

All patients are owed a ‘duty of care’ by their medical practitioner. Not all medical and surgical procedures can be guaranteed to be 100% effective, but if something goes wrong due to the negligence of the nurse, doctor or surgeon involved, then you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries suffered.
