Mistakes, poor-quality treatment and incompetence are hard to bear – especially when the doctors and health care professionals you have placed your trust in are to blame.
The solicitors at Attwaters Jameson Hill are experts in medical negligence. We offer a free initial assessment of your claim, with a qualified medico-legal adviser.
A Track Record of Successfully Pursuing Medical Negligence Claims
No two cases are the same. You may want an apology, an explanation of what went wrong or a sum to compensate you and help you deal with the consequences. We have breadth and depth in this area and an in-depth understanding of the key legal principles that will apply in your case. We handle claims ranging from minor injuries to seven-figure settlements. Some of our recent cases have resulted in:
- A lump sum and periodical payment settlement for a young woman who suffered brain damage whilst an in-patient at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. The compensation totalled approximately £4.6 million.
- An award of £9 million for a bright and intelligent boy trapped in a severely disabled body as a result of negligent obstetric care during his mother’s labour and delivery.
- A settlement of 0.5 million for a man with a below the knee amputation.
