We will all receive medical treatment during our lifetime. Thankfully, the majority of procedures will be provided to a high standard. However there are times when things go wrong and a significant error is made, the consequences of which can often be devastating, sometimes even fatal.
Our medical negligence solicitors have acted in a variety of cases which have included large amounts of compensation being recovered (e.g. £3.9 million for failing to diagnose meningitis and £2.5 million for birth related cerebral palsy). Our solicitors have considerable experience in working with individuals and families facing the aftermath of all types of accidents.
If you are a victim of medical or clinical negligence our highly experienced team of solicitors at Lanyon Bowdler can assist you in the event you wish to complain or seek compensation. For legal advice on making a claim please contact Kay Kelly, Head of Clinical Negligence or one of her team on 0800 954 9936.
Types of medical negligence claims
We can help clients take legal action for a wide range of clinical negligence cases including:
- Birth Injury
- Cancer Claims
- Cosmetic surgery
- General surgery
- Ear nose & throat surgery
Recovering damages will never properly compensate you for the harm you have suffered. But by bringing these cases to light it will help ensure continual improvements in medical standards, it may help prevent similar mistakes happening again, and it needn't be a stressful experience.
