Medical negligence is a term used to cover a wide variety of problems arising out of clinical care. It may be treatment by a doctor, surgeon, nurse, but equally can apply to various other forms of medical treatment including: dentistry, opticians, midwifery, plastic surgery or ophthalmology. Every health professional owes a duty of care to their patients. Where an injury occurs due to sub-standard medical care, this duty has been breached.

Some of the areas we have covered include:-

  • Birth injury cases such as cerebral palsy and erbs palsy.
  • Delay in diagnosis.
  • Misdiagnosis.
  • Failure to diagnose and treat medical emergencies.
  • Vision loss / blindness cases.
  • Autism.
  • MRSA.
  • Plastic surgery.
  • Treatment, medication or prescription errors.


It is important to note that the Statute of Limitations is two years for personal injuries claims and it is vital to take this time constraint into consideration if you wish to pursue a medical negligence case.
