Medical negligence

Your health is your priority and when it is affected by poor healthcare, it is important to seek legal advice from healthcare and medical negligence experts.

Our awards.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to healthcare and medical negligence, you and your family may be able to bring a claim against the healthcare provider.

If you can establish negligence, you can potentially claim compensation for:

  • compensation for pain and suffering
  • past and future lost wages
  • the value of the gratuitous care provided to you
  • the value of the care you were able to provide to others, but now cannot.

Time limits often apply and getting early legal advice is recommended.

If the healthcare and medical negligence has tragically resulted in a death, a successful negligence claim may also entitle you to compensation based on your financial dependency on the person who has died or based on the services that they contributed to your household.

A healthcare and medical negligence claim requires special expertise in both medicine and the law, so it is important to get expert advice from specialist lawyers to ensure that you are properly compensated.
