Clinical Negligence Solicitors in Barking, Grays and Romford, East London, Essex
My medical care left me worse off than I was before. Can I do anything about it?
Yes. You can make a complaint under the NHS complaints procedure and you may be able to claim compensation. If it is established that your care fell below a reasonable level, i.e. it is considered to be negligent you may be awarded a sum of money to compensate you for your injuries, loss of earnings and expenses you may have incurred. In cases involving serious injuries it is possible to claim the cost of care you require now and in the future.
Do I need a solicitor?
Not if you are just making a complaint but you do if you are claiming compensation for clinical negligence. We have a team of specialist clinical negligence lawyers experienced in all sorts of medical accident cases.
What experience do you have of clinical negligence cases?
Our team of clinical negligence lawyers has dealt with many cases resulting in awards of compensation to victims of all types of medical accidents.

I have already made a clinical negligence claim through another solicitor but I think that I received inappropriate advice. Is there anything I can do about it?
Yes. If your solicitor or barrister made a mistake, it may be possible to sue them. We can advise you about this and you may be entitled to legal aid to fund your case. Please see the Professional Negligence section for further details.
