Specialist Portsmouth Medical Negligence Lawyers
Swain & Co Solicitors have a dedicated team of medical negligence and clinical claim solicitors who have a proven track record pursuing clinical negligence and medical compensation claims.
You trust your GP (General Practitioner) and health care staff to uphold their duty of care to you as a patient. You expect them to promote and protect your health and wellbeing at all times.
But sometimes things go wrong and if you or someone you know becomes a victim of a medical mistake and suffers physical injury or mental harm, then contact Swain & Co Solicitors so that we can investigate whether or not a compensation claim for medical negligence or clinical injury can be made.
We have expert medical negligence lawyers who have the detailed legal, clinical and medical knowledge necessary together with a proven track record to help you pursue a medical negligence or clinical injury compensation claim.
What is clinical negligence?
There are many different circumstances and actions that can lead to a compensation claim for medical or clinical negligence such as misdiagnosis or simply a delay in diagnosis which leads to complications or a deterioration of a patient’s condition.
Claims can arise from medical neglect that causes a patient’s condition to deteriorate or from surgical errors, treatment errors, side effects and complications arising from medical treatment, prescription errors for medication including anaesthetic and suffering unnecessary pain or scarring.
We deal with a wide range of cases that stem from medical negligence – everything from catastrophic injury to less severe injury.
Severe cases include injury to a mother or child at birth and other serious or fatal accidents.
It may feel daunting bringing a claim against NHS clinical negligence or other medical mistakes, but we have the knowledge and experience needed to support you.
