Hospitals should be a safe place – and usually they are. But hospital staff are only human.
Inevitably, there are instances when things go wrong. Mistakes can and do happen in both NHS and private settings. And if your treatment fell below an acceptable standard, and you’ve suffered as a result, this is classed as ‘hospital negligence’ and you may be eligible to pursue a claim.
Perhaps you’re in a lot of pain? Or the incident has taken its toll on your mental health? Maybe your day-to-day life has been severely impacted? Whatever the outcome of the error, it’s important to seek justice – and our team of experienced hospital negligence solicitors are here to help.

Minimum effort, maximum compensation
Hospital neglect often has devastating consequences. For a start, you may have suffered a painful and debilitating injury. Your family relationships, social life, hobbies, career, and income may all have been significantly affected. In some cases, the repercussions can be truly life-changing.

And with the assistance of our experts, the process of claiming requires very little effort on your behalf.
We can’t turn back time and take away your injuries, but we can look after the full legal process for you. From filling out the paperwork to mediating with the defendant, we’ll oversee it all, ensuring you get both the maximum level of compensation and the sincere apology that you deserve. In the meantime, you can focus on what really matters – getting better.
Claims for all types of hospital negligence
Hospital negligence cases vary greatly in terms of their severity and, of course, your experience will be unique to you. Generally speaking, they include any situation in which a patient has received substandard hospital care – and typically arise due to incorrect, delayed or poor-quality treatment.
Some of the most common examples of hospital neglect include:
- medication errors
- surgical errors
- neglectful care (e.g. pressure sores)
- substandard care during childbirth
- needle-related injuries
- anaesthetic complications
- hospital-transmitted infections, such as MRSA and norovirus
- infection of surgical wounds
- A&E negligence
