In malpractice cases, timely advice and guidance to the insured clinician or therapist is often vital, especially as many have limited experience of claims or disciplinary action. Our medical malpractice claims team has extensive experience of advising on and defending clinical negligence, medical malpractice, disciplinary and regulatory complaints and claims.
Why work with our medical malpractice claims team?
Our in-house team comprises highly experienced clinical negligence claims case assessors from a wide variety of legal and medical backgrounds. They include current NHS practitioners with up to date knowledge of key medical developments and approaches. Specifically the team includes a dual qualified nurse/solicitor, and medical professionals from physiotherapy, neonatology, general practice, midwifery, flight nursing, paediatrics, intensive care, accident and emergency, occupational health, governance/patient safety plus a health visitor, a care consultant, and an aesthetic practitioner.
This means we have a team that can give an experienced and time sensitive assessment of a case and its likely validity/potential liability ultimately saving on the cost of an external expert report.
