Those who work in the National Health Service do a great job for all of us, but when errors or mishaps occur, the consequences can be devastating for individuals and their families. We have an established specialist department in this area of work who will be able to advise you on all the steps that need to be taken to bring a claim for compensation for medical (or clinical) negligence. We shall advise you on what funding may be available to enable us to take on a case which is normally in the form of a ‘no win no fee agreement’ backed by insurance. Despite the changes to legal aid, there are still a number of limited areas where we may be able to provide legal aid.
The areas in which we can provide advice and representation include:
- Gynaecology / Obstetrics / birth cases
- Other hospital cases including Orthopaedics and General Surgery
- GP, dental and optical cases
- Claims relating to residential care
- Fatal accidents
- Private cosmetic surgery
