The clinical negligence group at Penningtons Manches Cooper is regarded as one of the leading specialist medical negligence teams in the country. Our solicitors cover London, Guildford, Basingstoke, Cambridge, Oxford and Reading but see clients nationwide.
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. We have particular expertise in complex injury cases and dealing with clinical malpractice claims on behalf of children or those who lack capacity.
We know that every medical negligence claim is different so our team takes time to get to know you, to understand the effects of the injuries you have suffered and to support you every step of the way.
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. We offer various forms of funding, including legal aid and no win no fee (conditional fee) agreements. Our team aims to ensure that you receive maximum compensation while minimising the legal costs involved.
