Clinical Negligence

Although most medical and surgical procedures are considered safe, there is always going to be some risk of something unexpected going wrong. Even diagnoses can sometimes be incorrect and cause distress or further suffering.

Clinical Negligence occurs when a medical professional fails to meet their required duty of care to you and suffering occurs as a result. You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim and here at Equitas Solicitors, we are happy to assess your case free of charge.
