Medical Negligence Claims

We rely on and trust medical professionals such as doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists and pharmacists to provide us with the best treatment and care when we need it. 

Unfortunately, sometimes medical professionals can get it wrong, leaving their patients to cope with avoidable physical and emotional pain, as well as the financial cost of continued illness.

If you have received medical treatment which has resulted in you suffering a delay in your illness being diagnosed, further injury, or the need for additional treatment, then our expert team of solicitors may be able to assist you in pursuing a claim for medical negligence compensation. We deal with all aspects of medical negligence claims, from failed dental treatment to severe brain injury claims.

Our expertise

Our medical negligence department is headed by a dual-qualified solicitor and doctor 

The head of our clinical negligence department Linda Schermer-Jones is a qualified doctor as well as a qualified solicitor, so we can provide well informed legal support and medical expertise at an often difficult time. 

Linda practised medicine for some 10 years before qualifying as a solicitor and her experience and knowledge assists us greatly in pursuing claims on behalf of our clients. Linda is able to get to the issues of a potential claim quickly. We use her medical and legal knowledge as part of our initial screening process for potential negligence claims, which has at times resulted in us taking on and winning claims previously turned down by other law firms. 

With her dual qualification and wealth of experience, Linda provides exceptional insight into medical negligence claims, achieving significant settlements and transforming the lives of her clients and their families. 

Specialist knowledge of the team

Within our specialist clinical negligence department, we also have a solicitor with specialist knowledge of dental care and dental negligence claims and a solicitor who is very successful in pursuing nursing care claims (for instance resulting in pressure sores). 

All of our solicitors deal with all aspects of medical negligence claims and, by working as a team, we pool our legal knowledge and medical experience to get great results for our clients. Whilst claims are dealt with by a named solicitor, other members of the team are able to assist in their absence where necessary.
