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.

We have some of the best medical professionals in the world currently performing lifesaving surgeries every day, and for the most part these surgeries are completely successful and carried out to the best of the surgeon's ability. Unfortunately, medical staff, no matter how qualified or experienced can make mistakes from time to time causing serious damage to patients, leading to severe complications or even death.

If you have fallen victim to clinical negligence, have been injured during surgery or have found out that something has gone wrong whilst undergoing surgery, contact the expert clinical negligence solicitors at Forbes today as you may be eligible to make a compensation claim for your injuries.

Types of Surgery Compensation Claims

Some of the key types of issues our experienced clinical and medical negligence solicitors can help victims claim compensation for involve the following:

  • Heart surgery compensation claims
  • Anaesthetic awareness/treatment claims
  • Cosmetic surgery compensation claims
  • General surgery compensation claims
  • Keyhole surgery claims
  • Cosmetic surgery claims
  • Dental surgery compensation claims
  • Orthopaedic surgery compensation claims
  • Cases where swabs or even surgical tools are left inside the body after operation
  • Surgeons carrying out unnecessary surgical procedures
  • Organs damage
  • Nerve damage claims
  • Brain damage compensation claims

In addition, Forbes can also provide legal advice and representation to those who have suffered injury due to a surgeon's use of faulty or damaged instruments and damage caused due to a lack of training. Due to the fact surgeons are often tasked with dealing with many patients over a short period of time, they can fail to make sure they obtain consent or provide patients with the appropriate information on aftercare causing injuries in the long run. In either circumstance, we can offer expert advice and representation and pursue a compensation claim on your behalf.

This list is by no means exhaustive and the expert solicitors at Forbes will be able to advise you about your potential claim once they have discussed your injuries and the circumstances surrounding your injuries with you.

We aim to ensure all compensation received reflects the severity of your injuries, and helps to cover any loss of finances, ongoing treatments and rehabilitation programs as well as any modifications to your home that may be necessary.

Your best interests are always at the heart of everything we do and we will fight fearlessly to get you the compensation you deserve.

Contact Forbes for your Surgery Compensation Claim

If you have suffered an injury due to medical or clinical negligence, contact a member of our team as soon as possible. As there is a three year time limit imposed on many medical negligence claims it's vital you act quickly to ensure a positive resolution and the best possible outcome.

If you have suffered an illness or a personal injury and you believe your surgeon is to blame call an expert today on freephone 0800 037 4625 or contact us by email to get your compensation claim underway.

Alternatively if you would like a face to face consultation, we have expert Solicitors at each of our offices based in Accrington, Blackburn, Chorley and Preston ready to help you.
