Medical negligence

Usually when we are treated by a medical professional, the care we receive is of the highest quality. But occasionally things can go wrong. And in rare cases, medical negligence can occur – causing injury, disability, or even death for the patient

If you believe you or a family member has suffered pain, distress or discomfort due to the negligence of a healthcare provider, and you would like to explore making a complaint, we can help to clarify the options available to you.

At QualitySolicitors we have expert lawyers who specialise in medical negligence claims. You can talk to us in complete confidence about your own experience and we’ll establish whether you have a medical negligence claim and, if so, can help you claim for compensation.

Negligence can occur in a number of ways – from an incorrect or delayed diagnosis to mistakes made during operations. And negligence isn’t only limited to doctors; dentists, cosmetic surgeons, nursing home staff, and other healthcare providers can all, on rare occasions, offer treatment which falls below the standards you would reasonably expect to receive. If you believe that you have been in this situation then you may be able to claim compensation for suffering you experienced.

You may be eligible for legal aid or after assessing your case, we may be able to offer a no-win, no-fee arrangement. Whatever your situation, we will advise you about the right funding option for you and explain all of the likely costs and timescales up front, so give us a call.

You can talk to us in complete confidence. Our friendly, knowledgeable and sympathetic medical negligence solicitors are here to answer all the questions you may have about the claims process. We avoid legal and medical jargon and instead talk in plain English.
