We recognise that clinical negligence cases often stand apart from other claims for personal injury and appreciate the particular need for sensitivity and understanding when supporting those involved in the litigation process.
We understand that making a claim is often difficult and stressful but, equally, the defence of a claim will have implications for the professional reputations of those whose conduct is criticised.
For many years we have acted in cases across the spectrum of clinical negligence litigation, ranging from smaller claims arising from dental treatment and minor cosmetic surgery to the most serious cases of catastrophic injury and fatality. The depth of experience in our Clinical Negligence Team allows us to meet all levels of requirement.
We have appeared in courts throughout England and Wales and also in foreign jurisdictions in cases of injury alleged to have been caused by clinical negligence, including anaesthesia, gynaecological and obstetric procedures, birth injuries and cerebral palsy, mental health, spinal and cauda equina injuries, sterilisation procedures and general surgery.
Our barristers are highly experienced in group and multi-party actions across a range of clinical negligence and product liability claims.
Sadly, some medical errors result in the death of the patient and we are able to provide expertise in advising and representation at inquests and in subsequent civil claims for damages.
Our Professional Discipline and Regulation Team is able to provide advice and representation at hearings before all disciplinary tribunals in the healthcare sector.
