Leigh Day is a leading firm of medical negligence law specialists, ranked by legal directories as national leaders in this field of personal injury work.

With offices in London and Manchester we act for patients who bring clinical negligence compensation claims because of sub-standard medical care and hospital accidents. 

We know that experience in medicine, nursing and science is important to our work and our medical accidents and clinical negligence compensation team consists of lawyers and other staff with these backgrounds, such as doctors, midwives and nurses.

Our solicitors and lawyers have experience in most areas of medicine and medical negligence claims but specialise in severe or catastrophic medical injuries claims as a result of medical accidents, negligent medical treatment, GP error or clinical mistakes, inappropriate treatment, hospital negligence or missed diagnosis.

These include catastrophic injuries such as brain and spinal injuries, amputation and cauda equina syndrome claims and claims relating to the missed or delayed diagnosis of cancers,  infectious diseases and cases of food poisoning.

Our team of specialist medical negligence and medical accident solicitors and lawyers in Manchester and London are also expert at handling birth injury claims.  Our expert clinical negligence solicitors have successfully secured compensation totalling many millions of pounds for their clients throughout the UK.
