The law defines medical negligence as an incorrect diagnosis, negligent treatment or a failure to perform surgery to an acceptable standard. Our highly experienced medical negligence team works with you to understand the issues you have suffered, and establish whether you potentially have a legitimate claim against a GP or a hospital for breach of their duty of care.
This can be against a range of health care professionals employed both by the NHS and in private practice, as a result of decisions or judgements made by them, while they were acting their professional capacity in the course of their employment.
The term ’health care professional’ includes hospital doctors, dentists, nurses, midwives, health visitors, pharmacy practitioners, registered ophthalmic or dispensing opticians (working in a hospital setting), members of professions allied to medicine and dentistry, ambulance personnel, laboratory staff and relevant technicians.
Our team of medical negligence expert lawyers can help formulate your claim, manage it and bring it to a satisfactory conclusion.
