Child Clinical Negligence Compensation Settlements

Delays in diagnosing common childhood illnesses and errors in treatment are usually the reasons behind many medical negligence claims involving children.

Young children in particular are at risk of incorrect treatment or misdiagnosis because they struggle to communicate so their symptoms are sometimes overlooked.

As a parent or guardian, having a seriously ill child is your worst nightmare and if the professionals who are meant to look after them fail in their duty of care, it is simply devastating.

Taking legal action may not be at the forefront of your mind during what is a very difficult time, but our highly experienced specialists can talk you through your options in a clear, friendly and sensitive way.
