Clinical Medical Negligence
Here at John Morse Solicitors, we specialise in clinical and medical negligence cases and can help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to.
Clinical negligence and medical negligence occurs when the care provided to a patient falls below the standard that is expected from that medical or nursing professional. As a result, harm or injury is caused to the patient.
If the treatment was treatment which no responsible body of medical/nursing practitioners should have provided, then it is likely to be a breach of the standard of care or a failing in the duty of care to the patient. If subsequent physical or psychological injury has been caused then the patient is entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering.
Have you suffered medical or clinical negligence? If so, let our specialist solicitors assist you. We are Law Society Accredited in clinical negligence and have over 18 years of experience helping clients in this area.
We understand that suffering as a result of medical negligence can leave you feeling isolated, vulnerable and sceptical of the medical or nursing profession. We are here to listen and empathise with you and what you have been through.
