Results for the victims of medical mistakes | Experts in fatal medical negligence cases

Losing a loved one is devastating.

Dealing with the loss of a loved one due to medical negligence will leave families with questions about what went ring and why.

Our specialist team of lawyers regularly act for bereaved families who seek answers. We get them the answers they need. We secure compensation to ensure that families do not encounter financial hardship in the future.

Sometimes when deaths occur in unusual or unclear circumstance, an inquest may be held. This is to establish the facts around the death.

We can assist you with representation and help guide you through the proceedings.

Some of our cases:

  1. A devastated widow instructs us following the death of her husband from throat cancer. His GP failed to follow NICE guidelines. Her husband met the criteria for throat cancer on a number of visits to see his GP. He required an urgent referral to hospital.
  2. Our client was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. She has since passed away. She contacted us as her diagnosis should have happened many months sooner, but the radiology team missed it.
  3. A bereaved mother instructed us to represent her at the inquest into her daughter's death. We were by her side for 5 days to ensure that she was supported through the process and her voice was heard.


“Swain & Co Solicitors are experienced in dealing with cases involving deaths.”
