Find Experienced Medical Negligence Lawyers

Medical negligence claims are requests for compensation for injuries caused by negligence on behalf of an individual or organisation. If you or a loved one have suffered harm as a result of medical negligence, it’s important to seek the assistance of a medical negligence lawyer as soon as possible to check if you are entitled to compensation.

Medical negligence is an area of law that deals with the breach of a duty of care by a healthcare professional, ultimately resulting in harm to a patient.

These breaches include scenarios such as the following:

  • An injury occurs in an operation due to negligence, such as unsanitary conditions
  • Side effects or injuries from incorrectly prescribed medications
  • Delaying treatments incorrectly for emergency cases
  • Mistakes in surgery causing or exacerbating illnesses or injuries
  • Failing to recognise medical problems
  • Discharging patients from a hospital or medical care facility too early
  • Negligence during pregnancy or childbirth

Injuries in scenarios such as these due to medical negligence can have significant, or even fatal impacts for patients, as well as their families. However, even minor injuries can impact a person’s ability to work, live, and function as normal.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve probably seen a lot of lawyers use the term ‘No Win, No Fee’. Long story short: you only pay us when you achieve a successful outcome. So if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.

Let’s break it down.

  • We start by reviewing your claim in detail and give you a clear assessment of your prospects for success. We’re experts in compensation law, so we can give you an accurate assessment of your claim.
  • Once we’ve established that you should pursue your claim, you can tell us if you want us to proceed as your legal representatives. To formally appoint us as your legal representative, you will enter into a ‘Conditional Costs Agreement’ with us. This is a legal contract that sets out the likely costs of running your claim based on our fees, as well as the rights and responsibilities of you as the client and us as your legal representatives.
  • We’ll explain it clearly and thoroughly, with as little legal speak as possible – we promise you’ll understand it completely.
  • Importantly, this agreement will set out the ‘No Win, No Fee’ arrangement in black and white. This specifies that you will not pay us anything if your claim is not successful. Our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement also covers you for disbursements, or outlays. These are expenses that we may need to pay to progress your claim, including medical reports, expert witness fees and barristers’ fees.
  • In certain circumstances, you may be required to pay the other party’s legal costs if you are unsuccessful.
  • Remember, your success rests on you providing us with an honest, comprehensive account of all matters relevant to your claim.
