We act for both claimants and defendants in healthcare and clinical negligence cases.
We relish the dual demands of knowing the law and understanding the medicine – obstetrics, surgery, physiology, psychology, neurology, pathology and all the other disciplines involved.
Our work involves multi-million pound damages claims, entrusted to us in birth injury cases and in complex neurological and surgical cases, often involving multiple experts and leading-edge medical techniques.
It also involves negligence suffered by individuals through human error, system failure and communication breakdown. Our clients value our compassionate understanding and genuine concern for claimants, our ability to test the mettle of clinicians while maintaining their confidence and our rigorous approach to difficult issues of quantum and liability.
We act for the NHS Litigation Authority, the MDU, insurers of private providers, the General Medical Council, the General Dental Council and individual hospital trusts, as well as for ancillary professions and a wide variety of claimants.
In addition to providing specialist advice and advocacy for a wide variety of claimants and defendants in the healthcare field, we have experience of appearing before professional bodies in regulatory hearings.
