If you suffer from a condition, injury or disease which you have developed as a result of the poor treatment, delay in diagnosis or misdiagnosis by medical professionals, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

 

Benefits we bring to you

Misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment and surgical errors can lead to a medical negligence claim. We're here to help. Our medical negligence lawyers are experts in recovering compensation for people who have suffered unnecessarily as a result of poor treatment. We have a strong track record of recovering compensation on behalf of those we represent, and we recently negotiated the highest ever settlement in a claim to have been achieved in Scotland.

The level of compensation you receive will depend on what loss can be shown to have resulted from the negligent treatment. This can generally be split into three categories – pain and suffering (otherwise known as solatium), wage loss and services. We may be able to recover compensation relating to other areas of loss, in addition.

How much is your medical negligence claim worth? We maximise the compensation payable to our clients. We will provide you with an accurate valuation of your claim and will fight on your behalf to negotiate the best possible deal for you. We have a proven track record of recovering record breaking amounts for our clients.

Use our compensation calculator for an introductory guide to the financial value of claims, depending on the seriousness of the injury and the length of time you have had the symptoms.

We have a variety of funding options available, depending on your individual circumstances. The most popular is our 'no win no fee' arrangement, where you do not pay for our services unless we successfully recover compensation for you.
