Medical Negligence

We are all aware that the majority of our NHS Doctors, nurses and other medical practitioners are under significant pressure but ultimately we put all our trust in them when seeking public medical care. Unfortunately, mistakes and therefore preventable injury or distress, for whatever reason can and do occur. And similarly, they can obviously occur too when in receipt of private medical care.

Is there a justifiable claim?

Making a Medical Negligence claim is a specialised business and you should only look to gain support in making your claim from a highly experienced team who have the relevant expertise and background to guide you through the process. Ultimately we aim to get results in the form of a successful conclusion, hopefully allowing you to move on with your life along with the financial compensation that can help make your rehabilitation easier.

Under normal circumstances in Scotland you need to make your claim within three years of the negligence occurring, however, it is worth talking to us if your claim is over this time period too.

What we do

We have experience in all types of Medical Negligence, all of which come with their own set of consequences, impacts and permanent/short-term damage, hospital negligence or misconduct, surgical errors, misdiagnosis, childbirth, dental, cosmetic surgery and cancer care to name a few key areas.

We will fight hard to win you maximum compensation in the hope it can make a positive difference to your life – whether to help with your rehabilitation, private medical fees or any significant changes you’ve been forced to make that have cost you money. We will be a supportive, rational and reliable legal partner to guide you through the process from beginning to end.
