The Clinical Negligence Team is one of the most successful and best respected groups of medical negligence solicitors in England and Wales.
We are especially well-known for our work on behalf of children with cerebral palsy and other birth-related injuries, for whom we have recovered many millions of pounds in compensation over recent years.
We also have a strong reputation for many other areas of work, acting for clients with severe spinal injuries or missed diagnoses of cancer, for example.
Our work is not restricted to helping client with severe medical conditions; we can also represent you if your injuries are much more minor. We act in many cases of dental negligence too.
In addition the Clinical Negligence Team has significant in-house medical expertise. Judith Leach, a highly experienced barrister who works within the team, had a previous career as a senior intensive care sister and air ambulance retrieval nurse, looking after a wide variety of patients including those undergoing cardiac surgery and neurosurgery, critically ill patients and acute trauma patients. Judith has in-depth knowledge and insight into NHS systems and practices.
The Clinical Negligence Team has been involved in several ground-breaking cases, including a settlement worth £11.4million for a child injured at birth, and are constantly at the cutting edge of medical litigation, investing heavily in ongoing training for our team to ensure they remain ahead of the field.
Although there are many other areas of clinical negligence in which we have considerable experience, listed below are some of the areas in which we have particular expertise.
