Our Clinical Negligence team provides expert advice and representation in cases at all levels of complexity and seriousness on a national basis.
All aspects of clinical negligence work are undertaken including:
Members offer a comprehensive knowledge of medical fields including gynaecology, neurology and oncology. The team also has experience in dental negligence, ophthalmic negligence and in medical product liability.
We act for claimants and defendants and work on behalf of a very wide range of clients including private individuals, NHS Trusts, medical defence organisations and private medical and related institutions.
Members also provide representation at coroners’ inquests in which death has followed medical treatment.
Members are prepared to consider cases on a conditional fee basis.
Our team regularly delivers lectures to solicitors and other professionals on recent developments in the law and practice. If you are interested in arranging a lecture then please contact our clerks.
Exemplary damages are a narrow exception to the rule that damages are compensatory, not punitive. This case is a paradigm example of when they are appropriate.
