Medical Negligence Claims

Have you suffered an injury as a result of substandard care under a medical or healthcare professional? If so, you may be able to bring a claim for medical negligence.

Legal Requirements to Claim Medical Negligence Compensation

In order to succeed in bringing a clinical negligence claim, it is necessary to establish:

  • That you have suffered substandard care or treatment (breach of duty), and
  • That the injury you have suffered was caused as a direct result of the treatment or care that you received (causation)

This is a 2 limbed test, and both breach of duty and causation must be established to prove liability.

In some cases but not all, it can be advisable to present a formal complaint to the NHS before moving forward with a medical negligence claim but our team of experts will be able to discuss with you the most appropriate steps to take in relation to your claim.

Our solicitors specialise in compensation for medical negligence and are members of the Law Society's Clinical Negligence Panel and AvMA Solicitors Referral Panel. With Simpson Millar LLP, you can be assured of our expert legal advice and professional service. We have offices across England and Wales, and you will be directed to an office located in your area.
