The vast majority of people in this country enjoy excellent health care both from our National Health Service, and in the private sector. All health professionals are dedicated to patient care and do their very best to help their patients.
However, sometimes things can go wrong, mistakes are made, and the outcome for a patient can be devastating. When this happens it is important that patients are given full explanations as to what has gone wrong and why; that lessons are learnt; and that compensation is paid where appropriate.
Our specialist medical negligence team in Manchester can help you achieve those things and get answers to your questions. We have access to the very best independent medical experts, and in many cases we have been able to improve things for other patients by getting Trusts to change their procedures and put better systems in place.
We recognise that it is important for you to have complete trust in your medical negligence solicitor and that you need an experienced specialist who understands the medical and legal issues and who will fight your corner.
The medical negligence team in Manchester has experience in all types of medical negligence claims, with particular expertise in cases where patients suffer very severe, catastrophic and life-changing injuries.
Partner and medical negligence solicitor Stephen Jones
