Supporting you and your family to secure maximum compensation

We robustly defend our clients and ensure we get them the maximum compensation whilst giving them personal and supportive guidance throughout their case.

How we have helped our clients

When our client's mother in law's post-mortem concluded that the cause of death was due to spinal cord compression from a fracture that wasn't diagnosed or treated properly, we represented them at an inquest and secured them compensation. 

Following George's MRI scan he suffered multiple negligent operations and procedures which eventually left him without any stomach muscles. We helped George and his family to ensure he was awarded a substantial compensation payment.

Insights / Why do medical negligence claims take so long?

21-07-2017 /

At the outset of any medical negligence claim, whether against a hospital trust, a private surgeon, a GP or a dentist, the solicitor conducting the case on behalf of the Claimant should provide their client with a realistic timeframe for completion of the case. This timeframe will be based upon the presumption that the case is successful (which is by no means guaranteed).
