Have you or has someone close to you suffered as a result of mistakes made during medical treatment?
Are you entitled to make a claim for compensation for the injuries sustained as a result of that mistake?
If the answer is yes, we are here to help you.
As a nationally recognised specialist in medical negligence claims, we act on a daily basis for patients in claims against GPs, hospitals, dentists, private consultants, nurses and care homes as well as across all areas of medicine.
You can access a wealth of experience in dealing effectively with a range of medical negligence claims. Whether your claim relates to an injury sustained at birth, a surgical or anaesthetic error, incorrect or delayed diagnosis, cancer, cosmetic surgery, orthopaedic surgery or during emergency or specialist elderly care, we have the experience you need to move your claim to a successful conclusion.
You will find our team friendly and professional. Given this is a very difficult and stressful time for you, we will make the claim process as easy as possible. We will get you the answers to the important questions - "What went wrong?" and, more importantly, "Why?" - so we can pursue the maximum compensation to help make your future a little easier and a little brighter.
Our approach is based upon three very simple principles:
As specialists we can act quickly and decisively from the moment you ask us to act for you. This means you will receive your compensation as quickly as possible without having to pay for any additional - and unnecessary - work
As we have worked for hundreds of people in exactly the same situation as you; we understand exactly what you need which means we deliver the best possible solution for you - fast
We pride ourselves on the legal advice we provide but, as this is such a difficult and stressful time, we make sure you receive that advice with the highest possible level of client care
How we can help you?
We can help you if:
You want to complain to the G.P's surgery, hospital or other health provider about your medical care
You want to complain to the General Medical Council, the organisation with the power to restrict or even close a doctor's practice
You would like someone to represent you at an Inquest to find out why your loved one has died
You would like to claim compensation for an injury either you or your loved one has suffered during medical care
How can you claim the compensation you deserve?
If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of a medical mistake we will work tirelessly on your behalf to help you get the maximum compensation for that injury.
Wherever possible we will also push for an early payment of damages to help you with the expense of any additional care or equipment you may need as a result of your injury or to move home.
Having helped hundreds of people successfully claim the compensation they deserve we know that when you have been let down by a medical professional you are already under huge stress. That is why we will do absolutely everything we can to make the process of obtaining compensation as stress free and as quick as possible.
Why should you choose us?
Between us we have years of experience of helping victims of every type of medical accident.
This specialist knowledge allows us to act quickly and decisively on your behalf to make sure your claim is progressed and concluded as quickly, as efficiently and as cost-effectively as possible so you can concentrate on your future.
The solicitors working within our medical negligence team are recommended in the leading independent guides to the legal profession, Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.
We have one of the largest medical negligence teams in the North of England. Our team has a proven track record of winning cases, many of which were initially turned down by other solicitors.
Our ethos is to fight for you so you get to the truth.
From the start of your claim we will give you as much time as you need to explain exactly what has happened. While it is essential you are heard, it is equally important every that detail comes out. We will then begin to investigate; using all of our experience to make sure the truth comes out so you receive all of the compensation you deserve.
Throughout your claim we will stay in constant contact, updating you regularly because you need to know what is happening at every stage without having to spend your time chasing us.
Our reputation for being open, friendly and professional is widely recognised but rather than taking our word for it, please read our client and professional testimonials.
So you do not have to worry about costs, we have made sure we are one of the few law firms able to offer a range of options to fund your claim.
We can offer Legal Aid in birth injury cases. We can also act via an insurance policy or on a "No Win No Fee" basis which means you would not need to pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful. Whatever funding we agree, you we will not be asked to pay anything up front.
