So, tell us what happened to you and see if we can provide legal support and guidance to secure you the compensation you and your loved ones deserve.

Do you have a medical negligence claim?

We know that nurses, doctors and other members of the medical profession usually try to do the best they can for their patients. However, issues may arise in a medical setting from time to time, impacting patients at a time when they’re most vulnerable. If you feel like your life has been turned upside down due to clinical or medical negligence, book an appointment to speak to a member of our medical negligence team.

Successful medical negligence claims can help to award victims the compensation they deserve, providing people like you and your loved ones with the means to make your life as comfortable as possible after an incident of negligence. For example, we can help you to find answers, secure money for treatment and modifications to your home, and arrange for the life-long support that’s often required in cases such as these. We also conduct claims on behalf of surviving spouses and children of the deceased, taking on such cases with sensitivity, level-headedness and professionalism.

Here at Shoosmiths, we have a number of professionals ready to handle cases of medical and clinical negligence in Northampton. Andrea Rusbridge is a partner specialising in medical negligence in this office, and has worked in a diverse range of cases, including delayed diagnosis of cancer, birth injuries to women and children and infection to name a few examples.
