Clinical Negligence

Clinical negligence solicitors at Barratts are highly experienced professional who support people with compassion. We strive to improve the outcomes for people whose lives have been changed by medical negligence. This is most often the result of private or NHS hospital negligence, missed or mis-diagnosis in GP surgeries or mistakes in care homes. If you think you might have a claim for medical negligence in the NHS or a care home, we are ready to listen.

The most important place to start is with you. We begin every clinical negligence case by finding the right independent medical expert to assess your situation. Because we are specialist solicitors, we use our experience to make sure your claim is properly investigated.

It is very important that you get the best support from the beginning. This will give you the best opportunities to your recovery and return from hospital. Our solicitors are recognised experts and we sit on specialist panels. As a result, we often take on medical negligence claim cases and succeed where others have failed.

We will guide you through the steps you need to take. If your loved one has recently passed away in hospital, a care home or elsewhere, we will help you prepare for the Inquest. If you need someone to represent you at an Inquest, we can do that too.

You receive honest advice from Barratts Solicitors and we try to get you answers about your compensation claim as soon as possible. We will put you in touch with other organisations to help, if appropriate and we support our medical negligence clients as they make plans for their future.
