How Irwin Mitchell Can Help You

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a medical mistake or because of poor care given by a doctor or hospital staff, contact us for expert advice on claiming compensation.

Our solicitors have helped thousands of clients to claim compensation and this experience means we can give you the support, understanding and advice you need at this difficult time.

Many people have suffered illness or injury as a result of the treatment given to them by doctors or hospital staff who have not acted properly, in ways such as these:

  • Incorrect diagnosis
  • Incorrect treatment
  • Important symptoms ignored
  • A delay in diagnosis or treatment
  • Failure of a medical product or device

In this video, Lisa Jordan, an expert in medical negligence claims, talks about how we help clients who have suffered injury or illness because of a medical mistake.

Many of our solicitors specialise in particular types of medical negligence claims, such as birth injuries, and all have years of experience in working with clients who have suffered through poor clinical treatment.

What Will Happen When You Contact Our Medical Negligence Solicitors?

We will work tirelessly to gather the evidence we need to support your claim and talk you through everything that happens throughout your case. We will often arrange for medical reports to be written and seek expert opinions on your treatment and your injuries.

We will fight fearlessly to help you get the compensation you deserve and will keep you fully informed of everything that is happening throughout.

In certain circumstances, we can try to get you an early payment from your compensation so that you can pay your bills (if you can’t work, for example) or to pay for private treatment to help you to recover as quickly as possible.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a medical mistake or because of poor care given by a doctor or hospital staff, contact us for expert advice on claiming medical negligence compensation.
