Making a medical negligence claim

Medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence, can cause devastation to the lives of those affected. It doesn’t matter whether you’re making a claim due to NHS negligence or have experienced a medical mistake at the hands of a private doctor, surgeon or healthcare professional - making a claim can be a big decision. But at no upfront cost, our team of medical negligence solicitors in Solent can tell you whether you have a case, before you take any further decisions.

If you’ve been subject to below standard GP treatment, care home abuse or negligent prenatal advice, we’ll do everything we can to get you the financial reward you deserve for mistreatment. We also deal in a range of other medical negligence cases, including back and spinal claims, hearing loss claims and surgical errors. Our legal expertise puts us in a strong position to help during situations where people have been provided with low standards of care, a mistake during a procedure, a misdiagnosis and many other medical claims.

You may be nervous about claiming medical compensation or might still be suffering from the negligence itself and feel too unwell to make a case. As leading medical negligence UK specialists, our history of handling extremely complex and sensitive clinical negligence cases means we’ll go above and beyond to investigate and prove your claim. We also work with a number of the UK’s top medical experts and rehabilitation providers to ensure life gets back to how it’s supposed to be as soon as possible.

Whether you’re seeking legal advice for yourself or a loved one, our medical negligence solicitors in Solent are just a phone call or email away.

Making personal injury claims

There are many reasons you might not seek personal injury compensation. You might feel your injury isn’t severe enough for a case, but often the long-term effects of a seemingly minor injury are underestimated and you most likely have a right to claim.

That’s where we come in. Our team of injury lawyers in Solent have considerable experience in dealing with personal injury claims. This could be an injury in the workplace - you may have an accident at work or are suffering with a psychological illness caused by stress at work. Other injury claims include road traffic accidents, brain injuries, carbon monoxide poisoning, PTSD and military injuries.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a slip or trip resulting in a sprained ankle or a life-changing brain or spinal cord injury, our personal injury solicitors are passionate about guiding you through what can be a difficult time. We’ll gather all the information needed to build your case and offer support and solid legal advice in plain English.

Your quality of life is our first and foremost priority, so we’ll get any treatment agreed and funded even before the other side has admitted blame and the legal process has begun. Partnerships with leading treatment and rehabilitation providers as well as national charities also means you’ll have the best medical, material and moral support possible throughout the personal injury claims process. We can arrange meetings over the phone, at your home or in hospital - wherever is most convenient for you.

If you’re interested in making a personal injury claim with a free no-obligation consultation, contact our personal injury lawyers today - call, email or pop into our Solent office to talk through the process.
