Clinical negligence

If you suspect you or a loved one has suffered as a result of clinical negligence it is vital to get specialist legal advice as soon as you possibly can.

Our clinical negligence lawyers in Portsmouth have many years of experience and are experts at getting to the truth - so that you can understand what happened and gain the compensation or support you need. We deal with cases in many fields, including medical negligence, birth injuries (such as cerebral palsy) and cancer misdiagnosis. Our goal is to help you move on, long-term and as fully as possible.

Many clients are concerned about costs. We will investigate your case thoroughly before advising you whether or not to proceed and in most circumstances can offer you ‘no-win, no-fee’ terms. We then handle everything for you, compiling evidence and pursuing your case efficiently, through the NHS compensation process or privately, through negotiation or in Court.

How we have helped our clients

  • Acted for a young lady who suffered Cerebral Palsy as a result of mis-managed labour. The claim settled in excess of £2 million four weeks before trial together with an additional amount by way of periodical payments for the remainder of her life.
  • Acted for the family of a gentleman whom the NHS failed to recall for follow up Gastroscopy following a diagnosis of Barrett’s Oesophagus, sadly with a fatal outcome. The claim settled in excess of £300,000 without having to go to Court.
  • Handled a case for the family of an elderly gentleman who had been sectioned to hospital under the Mental Health Act. Regrettably the hospital failed in their duty of care to adequately risk assess and the gentleman suffered a fall, causing an injury to his head whilst in their care. Unfortunately he later died from the head related injuries and the matter was ultimately settled in his favour.
