What is medical negligence?

Medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence, refers to poor care that’s been provided to patients by medical professionals that's made an existing condition worse or caused an additional condition.

Do I have a claim?

The term medical professionals includes NHS staff, private practice staff, GP practice staff, dental practice staff and pharmacy staff. If you have a condition that's been caused or made worse by a medical professional, you may be entitled to a No Win No Fee compensation claim. Contact our specialist medical negligence lawyers today for advice on making a claim.

How much is my claim worth?

Every case of medical negligence is different, so the final figure you might receive depends on a number of factors, such as the severity of your injuries and the affect those injuries have had on your life.

You can also claim back any expenses that you’ve incurred as a result of your injuries, such as lost earnings if you’ve been unable to work, and any future losses, such as ongoing care.

Read our medical negligence FAQs for more information about what you can claim for.

How much does it cost to make a medical negligence claim?

The majority of our medical negligence cases are funded by a No Win No Fee agreement. This means, if you lose your case, you won’t have to pay anything so there’s no financial risk to you. There are a small amount of cases that can also be funded by legal aid.
