Clinical Negligence

Hello I'm Leonie Millard and part of the clinical negligence team here at Forbes Solicitors. Here, we recognise that:

  1. Each case is different and offers a strong team experienced in dealing with cases against GPs, hospitals, dentists and private and public medical providers.
  2. We're not new to this area of law and have gained success through knowledge and expertise, winning multi million pound cases for our clients and safeguarding their past and future needs and looking after some of them long term.
  3. Medical negligence can be a stressful and life changing event for some people. We will do our best to breakdown the issues and explain the process.
  4. There are a range of funding methods available, including a "No Win No Pay" option.

If you'd like to make a claim for compensation, please either contact us via the enquiry form on the website or telephone us today.

If you have suffered due to clinical negligence, the expert solicitors at Forbes are on hand to help. We're able to offer a range of full and comprehensive legal advice which will ensure you receive the compensation amount you deserve.

Our Clinical Negligence Solicitors know that making a claim for clinical or NHS medical negligence can be daunting, especially when you have already been through a stressful and unpleasant time. That's why we aim to investigate the nature of the problem, advise you as to what you may be entitled to and then take care of the compensation claims process for you. This ensures a prompt resolution of your problems, all in a friendly and compassionate atmosphere.

Ensuring a Professional Service

At Forbes, we have a dedicated team of Clinical Negligence Solicitors and litigation Lawyers with a wide range of experience in all types of claims against health care authorities and professionals, including those at private clinics. We are members of the AVMA and Law Society Clinical Negligence Panels and are one of only a few law firms in the North of England with a Legal Aid Agency Clinical Negligence Franchise. This award allows only an elite number of highly qualified solicitors to apply for Legal Service Commission Funding (formerly Legal Aid) to handle clinical negligence cases.

Our expert Solicitors deal with all types of compensation claims regarding medical negligence by dentists or GPs, or NHS and private hospitals, as well as clinical negligence claims for many procedures.

The Claims Process

There is usually a 3 year time limit on compensation claims starting from the date of your incident, so it's important that you act quickly and seek advice from expert clinical negligence solicitors as soon as possible. Forbes can offer a free consultation and help you discern as to whether you have a claim and advise you on the best course of action. Medical negligence can have a detrimental effect on your life, so if you feel you have been mistreated in any way, it's important you seek legal support.

Whether it's long-term rehabilitation you require, adjustments to living arrangements, therapeutic support or financial provisions to pay for the avoidable suffering, our team are dedicated to providing you with a straightforward, stress-free service.
