Medical Negligence

We all at critical points in our lives and the lives of our loved ones put our trust in doctors and other medical professionals.

Not every medical problem can be fixed, but the professionals usually try to help us through these difficult times as skilfully as they can.

However, sometimes things do go wrong – sometimes terribly wrong. Here are just a few examples of what can happen:

  • surgical mistakes
  • nursing failures
  • hospital acquired infections
  • injuries during birth
  • misdiagnosis by GPs and specialists
  • unsuccessful cosmetic surgery
  • sterilisation failures. 

In such circumstances, money is a poor substitute for what should have been successful treatment, but it can make matters easier particularly in terms of dealing with the direct financial consequences.

Our litigation team can help you claim the compensation you are entitled to. We have a number of funding options available to victims of medical negligence, including conditional fee agreements.

The team at Woodfines includes lawyers with long and extensive experience in dealing with medical negligence claims who have a sympathetic understanding of the needs of negligence victims and their families.

If you or someone close to you has suffered in this way, please contact Lynne Quarmby, Hannah Young or Keith Jones at our Bedford office on 01234 270 600 for a free initial consultation.

Please note that we also have skilled professional negligence solicitors in our Bedford office who will advise you on claims related to accountants, solicitors, barristers, architects, engineers, surveyors, builders and tradesmen and other professionals. 

First class service. Always keeping in touch with all that was going on regarding my case, very helpful in every way..
