Clinical & Medical Negligence Lawyers

At some point in our lives we will all need medical treatment, and in the vast majority of cases everything is done to a very high standard. Unfortunately, things do occasionally go wrong, and the consequences of a significant medical error can be devastating or even fatal.

At Lanyon Bowdler, we have a team of friendly, compassionate, lawyers who are hugely experienced at talking to people and their families following all sorts of accidents.

Our specialist private client solicitors have worked on a wide range of cases, some of which have resulted in large compensation amounts being recovered, such as £2.5 million for birth-related cerebral palsy and £3.9 million for failing to diagnose meningitis.

Talking to a solicitor needn’t be a daunting prospect, so please get in touch for a friendly chat about how we can help. If you wish to complain or seek compensation for an incident of medical or clinical negligence, our team of specialists will be able to deal with it in a sensitive and approachable way.

Types of Medical Negligence Claims

We understand that recovering compensation in the form of legal damages will not change what has happened, but it is important to highlight cases where something has gone wrong. Taking legal action often results in changes being made which raises medical standards and helps avoid similar mistakes from happening again.

Some of the types of clinical and medical negligence cases our specialist solicitors can deal with include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • General surgery
  • Birth injury
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Cancer claims
  • Ear, nose and throat surgery
