Clinical Negligence

Our clinical negligence barristers act for patients and practitioners in clinical negligence compensation claims, arising from sub-standard medical care.

Doctors and other healthcare professionals are generally liable directly for their own negligent treatment. In addition, their employers, usually NHS Trusts, NHS England or private hospitals, may be vicariously liable for the negligence of their staff. A GP is liable for his or her own acts, for the acts of his or her employees and, arguably, for anyone else s/he employs to look after patients such as nurses.

We have been instructed in a wide range of claims, including diagnostic errors, failure to obtain consent, capacity to give consent, failure to attend and treat, treatment errors, duties in contract and tort, jurisdiction disputes arising from treatment performed abroad, and insurance disputes.

Obtaining proper financial compensation for your injuries is just part of what we do. We can also help you to receive appropriate compensation so that you can make the best possible recovery by getting you the right kind of rehabilitation care from the start.

We are committed to providing a supporting and personalised service, tailored to you and your needs. We pride ourselves on providing an approachable and utterly professional service.
