Medical professionals have a duty of care to patients, which extends to the accurate diagnosis and treatment of conditions. Failure to warn of the risks involved in undergoing a procedure or taking a certain medication constitutes medical negligence, as does sub-standard care.
If you have suffered as a result of misdiagnoses, wrongly prescribed medication or sub-standard care, our medical negligence solicitors could help you seek damages and compensation.

Grounds For Medical Negligence Claims
Medical negligence claims are one of the most complex areas of personal injury litigation, since UK law requires sufficient proof before damages can be negotiated. Firstly, the level of care received must be proven to fall below that expected of a health professional in his/ her relative field. More importantly, this failure must be linked to an illness or injury you were not suffering prior to treatment – legally known as “causation”.
The process of ‘proving’ malpractice can be a complicated one, which is why it is key to consult an expert medical negligence solicitor with experience of similar cases. Your solicitor will conduct appropriate investigation in support of your case, and seek to act on your behalf when liaising with the practitioner’s legal representatives. In some circumstances, it may not be clear whether a negligence case warrants legal attention, but we will do our utmost to help.
