Medical Negligence

When seeking medical advice and treatment, you can expect your condition to be correctly diagnosed, addressed and managed. If your condition worsens because of negligent advice or a failed treatment causes you further injury, you could be entitled to compensation.

Smith Roddam Solicitors specialise in medical negligence claims to help you get answers and compensation where it’s due so that you can properly manage your condition and health moving forward. Doctors, dentists, nurses, midwives, clinicians and other medical professionals all owe a duty of care to you and must be appropriately qualified and trained in the advice and procedures they administer. Any breach in that duty of care can cause serious consequences, and so it is vital to have protections in place for those who entrust their health to them.

Medical negligence can arise from a number of situations, including inaction; missed, delayed or wrong diagnoses; incomplete advice or care; surgical mistakes; or inappropriate treatment. If you have suffered as a result of any of these, you do not need to suffer in silence. Our expert team of negligence solicitors will help you secure monetary compensation to reclaim any losses as a result of your treatment and to help you pay for ongoing treatment. Often medical treatment is quite costly; you should not be left out of pocket or without the ability to pay for corrective care because of medical negligence.
