Clinical Negligence Claims
Our lawyers, David Dickie and Alicia Sharman, are leading Clinical Negligence solicitors. They specialise exclusively in this field and together have successfully dealt with most types of clinical negligence claims over the last 30 years.
They endeavour to be not only skilful lawyers but to be sensitive, trustworthy and approachable. Rest assured they will patiently guide you through your claim, every step of the way.
Bespoke Personal Service
Unlike many other firms, the conduct of your claim will not be continuously passed from one solicitor or para-legal to another. David or Alicia will deal with you personally from your very first telephone call to the successful conclusion of your claim, and significantly this makes the most of your prospects of winning the maximum amount of damages. In fact, as a result of dealing with their claims in this way and establishing not just a close working relationship but a bond, some of our former clients still keep in regular touch with us.
Upon taking your instructions to pursue a claim for clinical negligence, we work quickly and efficiently to establish if fault and causation can both be proven. We do this by obtaining and analysing expert medical evidence and, if so, we will then take further prompt and shrewd steps to quantify your claim, by obtaining other expert evidence. We will then strive to obtain the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.
What Is A Clinical Negligence Claim?
When you have been let down by the medical profession, you may not know whether you have a clinical negligence (also called medical negligence) claim. We will compassionately listen to you and advise, free of charge, whether we think you have a viable claim that is worth pursuing.
Whilst generally, we all in the UK appreciate the efforts of our doctors and nurses in our National Health Service, sometimes things do go badly wrong and if mistakes are not to be repeated it is important that clinicians are held to account for them so that lessons are learnt. The same principle, of course, applies to private medical treatment.

Results that speak for themselves
Professional, considerate and understanding throughout my claim, arising from my husband’s death.
Just a note to say thank you for taking on my medical negligence claim and getting my settlement sorted as quick as you could. The money has made my day to day life easier as I have now settled into my new bungalow. It does not help me get my life back to how it was, as working was a big part of my life which I enjoyed, but in time I know I will feel better about this.
Mr Dickie has worked tirelessly and paid a great deal of attention to our case. It is important to remember that this has been a daunting experience for ourselves but Mr Dickie has always been able to put us at ease thanks to his understanding and sympathetic nature.
