You should seek advice only from law firms who are recognised specialists in that they hold a Legal Aid Franchise and/or the following kitemarks: Law Society Specialist Clinical Negligence Panel Membership and/or Action Against Medical Accidents (AvMA) Specialist Clinical Negligence Panel Membership. We are proud to hold all three kitemarks – a testament to the quality of work and service that we provide.

In addition, members of the team are ranked by the legal directories Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 as among the best medical negligence solicitors in the country for work in this sector.

Our team of medical negligence lawyers, led by partner Andrew Cragg, is well resourced to deal with a variety of cases including high value complex brain and spinal injury, delay in diagnosis, surgical errors and suicide.

You can call or email us to discuss your medical negligence claim – you, or someone close to you, may have suffered injury or loss as a result of negligent medical care.

  • Free initial advice
  • Assisting with complaints about treatment
  • Representation at inquests
  • Obtaining notes and records
  • Care and rehabilitation
  • Full investigation of a potential negligence claim
