Medical Accident or clinical negligence as an area of law relates to any harm caused by the act or failure to act of a health professional.
It should be stressed that the majority of cases are not successful. Some solicitors say they have really high success rates, but the difficulty here is what is being measured. If they are realistic and include every enquiry, rather than just the cases they take on, they would have to concede that success rates are relatively low. The reasons for this are found in the page 'How to Make a Claim.'
Please note that the clinical negligence department does not undertake work relating to psychiatric negligence where the only injury is psychiatric.
