What We Do

Medical negligence claims* cover everything from a minor complaint such as a dentist extracting a healthy tooth (leading to extended pain and expense) to far more serious injuries where your long term health has been compromised or where there has been a fatality.

Medical negligence can arise where there is a misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis or treatment. This negligence can occur during surgery. Equally it can arise if you were not adequately informed and warned of the risk associated with a certain procedure.

The following are some examples of clinical negligence claims we have successfully pursued on behalf of clients:

  • Accidental cutting of the bile duct during a gallstone removal operation.
  • Failure to prescribe antibiotics post-operatively leading to septicaemia.
  • Nerve damage caused during a spinal fusion operation.
  • Infection suffered during a laparoscopy.

Here are some examples of medical negligence where we can help bring a claim on your behalf:
