 Making a medical negligence claim

Our team of medical negligence solicitors in Birmingham are on hand to support you if we feel you've got a reason to make a claim.

Suffering from medical or clinical negligence can be an unpleasant experience – and it can have huge consequences. Poor standards of care, an incorrect procedure, a misdiagnosis… all of these have the potential to turn your life upside down through no fault of your own.

That's where our negligence solicitors come in. We have experts in fields such as cerebral palsy claims, back and spinal claims and surgical errors. Our goal is to get you the financial rewards for being mistreated by a healthcare professional, or a healthcare establishment. We can also help you if you’re looking to build a claim on behalf of a family member or loved one too.

You may be apprehensive about putting together a claim, or perhaps you’re too unwell due to the negligence you've been subject too. If you choose to seek advice from Shoosmiths, we have medical and clinical negligence solicitors who have worked on a variety of cases within the sector.

As a Partner in the firm, Phil Barnes is a renowned negligence solicitor in our Birmingham branch. Phil has over 15 years' experience and the main focus is working with patients and their families. Joining us in 2009, Phil also won a settlement for the first reported case involving the negligent contraction of MRSA.

Our team of personal injury solicitors are on hand if you wish to build a case, and will offer support and guidance throughout the entire process.

Putting together a claim can seem a daunting task – but working with one of our expert solicitors will help put your mind at ease, and put together a claim that will get you the compensation you deserve.

Getting here

By car - from the M6

Leave the M6 at Junction 6 (Spaghetti Junction) and follow the A38 (M) Aston Expressway to Birmingham City centre. Stay in the right hand lane and carry straight on over the flyover. Once you are past Aston University immediately move into the left hand lane and exit.

Carry on to the end of this slip road (you'll see a hotel on the left) and continue through a set of traffic lights following signs for Snow Hill Station.

Pass under a railway bridge and take the first left into Livery Street where you can park in a Pay & Display car park next to Snow Hill Station.

By car - from the M5

Leave the M5 at Junction 3 (Spaghetti Junction) and take the A456 following signs for Birmingham City Centre for approximately five miles. When you reach the Fiveways Roundabout, take the second exit onto Broad Street.

When you reach the Paradise Circus Roundabout, take the exit (signposted City Centre Shopping Parking) onto Great Charles Street Queensway. Keep to the left and proceed to the St Chads Square Roundabout, where you should bear right so you are coming back on yourself and follow signs for Snow Hill Station.

Pass under a railway bridge and take the first left into Livery Street where you can park in the Pay & Display car park next to Snow Hill Station.


Halfway along Livery Street on the left is a Pay & Display car park, just adjacent to Snow Hill Station. The office is a short walk from there. Exit the car park towards Colmore Row, turn left and the office is just across the square.

The Birmingham office does have limited allocated visitor parking spaces (including two disabled bays) just behind the building in Steelhouse Lane. They are available on a 'first come, first served' basis, so it is essential to book these spaces beforehand if you wish to use them.

By train

Birmingham New Street, Moor Street and Snow Hill stations are all convenient for the Birmingham office. Cabs are readily available but ought not to be necessary since the office is within a 10-15 minute walk of all three stations. Of the three, Snow Hill Station is the closest, being a short two minute walk from the office, but New Street is probably the best served rail link nationally.

If you are unsure about your bearings from New Street or Moor Street Stations, it's best to head for the Cathedral. Once there, turn right down Colmore Row, past the large Wesleyan Building, towards Colmore Square. There is a new tram system in place so please be careful when crossing the roads.
