Whilst hospitals dispense the right advice and beneficial treatment the majority of the time, there are instances where they get it wrong.
As a result, thousands of hospital negligence compensation cases are reported each year in the UK. Hugh James can help with any type of hospital negligence you may have been a victim of.
Hugh James has one of the largest medical negligence teams in the UK and the biggest in Wales. Annually we recover in excess of £20m in compensation each year for our clients.
We are recognised by both the medical negligence charity AVMA and the Solicitors Regulatory Authority as experts in clinical negligence.
If you have suffered a physical or psychological injury whilst in hospital care, as a consequence of the negligence of a doctor or other medical professional, then you could be entitled to make a hospital negligence claim.
We can offer no win, no fee arrangement from the outset (if your case is accepted).
Our experienced hospital negligence legal team will make the whole claim process as simple as possible for you and will provide you with regular updates throughout your case.
If you feel you may have a claim, contact our friendly and approachable team today.
