Our team of clinical negligence specialists works across both the public and private sectors: we're members of the NHSLA clinical negligence panel and highly regarded for our work in the NHS, and we also provide clinical negligence services to private health companies.
We work on the front line of clinical negligence law. We've been closely involved in High Court and Court of Appeal litigation with a significant impact on the size of damages awards for both clinical negligence and personal injury defendants. We've also been at the forefront of case law development since the introduction of the Human Rights Act 1998, taking one case to the House of Lords and managing many others to successful resolution.
Whatever the circumstances and whoever the client, our fundamental aim is to ensure that the right claims are settled in a timely and cost effective manner, while at the same time identifying and fighting claims that have no merit.
Our experience, our people and our sophisticated case management systems enable us to handle litigation effectively and efficiently, providing innovative solutions in complex and high value cases, and pragmatic, cost effective solutions in smaller cases.
Where appropriate, we strive for resolution, rather than unnecessary litigation, using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) techniques such as formal mediation. We do not limit our clinical negligence services to managing the litigation, either. We prefer to be involved early and we provide practical, informed support to clinicians throughout the process. Once your claim is concluded, we look to contribute to patient safety by providing risk management feedback to risk managers and those responsible for clinical governance.
