Professional and Medical Negligence

For the times when professionals let you down…
Our negligence department deals with both professional negligence and medical negligence claims (also called clinical negligence). We rely on professionals to give us advice, but there are occasions when things go wrong.

What is Professional negligence?

Professional negligence is when professionals don’t give you the reasonable level of service, skills or care you expect or deserve. If you have suffered loss as a result, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation or other remedy.

Examples of this can be:

  • Your solicitor failed to check something on the deeds to your property
  • Your accountant failed to advise you on your tax liability
  • You had medical treatment that went wrong but could have been avoided

If you have experienced professional negligence or malpractice you need to know if the professional was at fault and if you can make a claim for compensation. We’re here to advise on the merits of your case and the best course of action.

Our role is to achieve the most appropriate and satisfactory outcome for you. Our specialist team of negligence solicitors has experience in advising and acting for clients in many types of professional negligence claim against professionals including solicitors, medics, clinicians, architects, accountants, financial advisers and surveyors.

Depending on the merits of your case, we may be able to act for you under a conditional fee arrangement, which can reduce your liability to pay our costs if your case is not successful. We can advise you in more detail about alternative ways of funding your claim at our first meeting.

The success of our negligence department is based on using alternative dispute resolution and in particular mediation. These methods boost the likelihood of an acceptable outcome while keeping costs down as well as risk, stress and anxiety.

Whatever the circumstances, we’ll provide clear, straightforward advice and guidance.

If you feel you have experienced negligence professional or medical, and may have a claim, get in touch for a free initial consultation, when we can advise you on the merits of your case, the costs involved and funding.
