Medical & Clinical Negligence Solicitors

If you feel that you have suffered a medical accident, you are entitled to an explanation and you may be entitled to compensation.  

Medical Negligence cases can be brought against doctors, surgeons, nurses, midwives, dentists, pharmacists and even physiotherapists, nursing home staff and NHS trusts.  

It might not be easy for you making a claim against the NHS or another health care professional who has treated you, but we will handle your claim with sympathy and of course the experience we have in this specialist area.  All our solicitors working in the area only handle medical, clinical and surgical negligence cases, so you can be confident you are in the hands of an expert.  We handle cases from all over the UK and give everyone of our clients the same high levels of service.

At Pearson's we have a nurse adviser who can deal with your initial enquiry. Her nursing background compliments the legal expertise available at Pearson Solicitors, she has an understanding of the NHS systems, routines and documentation, but above all can empathise and identify with the situation our client’s find themselves in and put them at ease. This is particularly welcomed by many of our female clients when discussing intimate medical procedures and for the many clients who call on behalf of their relatives.

In this way we can manage cases during the investigative phase, meet clients for the initial first interviews, discussing funding arrangements and assist them with regards to making complaints, obtaining clients medical records and preparing a summary of the records and instructing appropriate experts.

Funding a Medical Negligence Case

Our dedicated Medical Negligence team is approved by the Legal Services Commission. This means that we have recognised expertise and experience in medical negligence matters and can offer specialist advice. It also means that we are one of only a few firms authorised to apply for Legal Aid to fund your case, if you meet the qualifying criteria for Legal Aid.

In many other cases clients are able to take the options of No Win No Fee or Legal Expense Insurance to help fund a claim. Whatever option taken there is often minimal or no cost to the client.
