Clinical Negligence Solicitors in Leeds & Yorkshire
Everyone will require medical treatment at some point in their lives and for the most part patients receive a reasonable standard of care. Unfortunately, sometimes the standard of care is so poor, it is negligent, and results in injury to the patient. Poor care can lead to devastating, life changing injuries and it is at this point that patients should consider legal action.
Clinical negligence can happen in a number of contexts and may involve private or NHS treatment. Sometimes the standard of care provided by hospital doctors, nurses, GPs and dentists, is so poor that it is negligent, and it results in injury to the patient.
For a legal claim to be successful it’s necessary to show that both the care received fell below an acceptable standard and that the patient has suffered injury and loss as a result of that care. This is usually done with the assistance of independent medical experts.
We understand that pursing a claim for medical negligence can be daunting and stressful and our team are on hand to support and guide you through the process.
Our team aim to get our clients back on their feet, negotiating financial assistance from those at fault.
Medical Negligence is a highly specialised area of law, and our nationally recognised specialist team has dealt with a wide range of claims. We hold Law Society accreditation and we are able to offer Legal Aid in certain circumstances.
Rebuilding Shattered Lives
The Rebuilding Shattered Lives campaign aims to ensure that the law which helps victims of negligence is not eroded. Those responsible for causing injuries like Victoria’s must provide the financial support she needs to try to put her life back together, and the law is there to make that happen. But it often comes under attack from those who aren’t willing to pay for their negligence. We must all be vigilant to ensure that the civil justice system is valued and protected and that the injured person is always at its heart.
That’s why Ison Harrison supports Rebuilding Shattered Lives.
