Making a Medical Negligence Claim

Making a medical negligence claim against the NHS or a private hospital

Medical negligence claims offer people a much-needed chance to recover compensation, whether the treatment was carried out in the NHS or privately.

If you think you may have a claim call us for advice on 01925 937070 or complete our Medical Negligence Enquiry Form by clicking here. We will call you back at a time convenient to you.

We now have a Wigan office which can be contacted on 01942 914004.

We will guide and support you through the whole process and ask only that you provide us with as much information as possible at the beginning of the case, including copies of medical records, correspondence and any other documentation in your possession so that we can make an accurate assessment of your claim.

If, having considered the evidence you have provided, we believe that your prospects of succeeding in your claim are good we will offer to take your case on a no win no fee basis.

No win no fee – what does it mean?

‘No win no fee’ means that if you do not win your case you do not have to pay our fees.

If your case does succeed and we obtain compensation for you then you will pay a contribution to our fees. The contribution will be based on a percentage of your compensation and will be discussed with you at the outset. You will not be expected to pay for medical reports, barrister’s fees or Court fees.
