If you, or one of the members of your family, have suffered an injury as a result of medical treatment and you are concerned that errors have been made, you may wish to consider claiming compensation.

We provide advice in relation to injury or loss suffered as a result of any type of treatment by doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, whether in the course of NHS or private treatment.

Initial advice is offered free of charge and without obligation. This can include guidance provided by telephone, a visit from one of our specialist solicitors or a review of your documents.
