Medical surgery or treatment will always carry a risk. However, there should be never be any reason to doubt that the surgery or treatment and advice given will be carried out to a proper standard.
As lay people, we place an extremely high level of trust in our doctors, consultants and other practitioners and hold them out in high regard for their skill and care, but unfortunately that trust can occasionally be broken by medical practitioners providing substandard care.
This poor level of care can mean that an injury is caused directly to the patient, or has caused an existing condition to get worse, which can happen either by way of misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment or surgical mistakes.
Examples of the types of claims we can advise upon (but not limited to) include:
- Birth Injury
- Hospital Negligence
- GP Negligence
- Dental NegligenceMedical Misdiagnosis
- Surgery Complications
- Cauda Equina Syndrome
- Cancer Misdiagnosis
If you, or any member of your family have suffered injury or issue as a result of substandard care, and you are worried or would like further advice, we can help by guiding you as to the legal position and procedure, and advise, providing an explanation of your options.
The majority of personal injury cases taken on can be dealt with under a Conditional Fee Arrangement (CFA), which is more widely known as a “no win-no fee” arrangement.
