Devizes is home not only to the NHS run Devizes Community Hospital and Green Lane Mental Hospital but also to a number of GP practices and private medical clinics. If you’ve been the victim of medical negligence in one of these units, or if you live the Devizes area but have been the victim of a medical mistake at another hospital, perhaps at Salisbury District Hospital or the Great Western Hospital in Swindon, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
Whether it’s a missed diagnosis, a surgical procedure gone wrong or simple poor advice which has led to you suffering in some way as a result of the negligence, you should speak to a specialist medical negligence lawyers to see if you grounds for compensation.
Of all compensation claims, those involving medical negligence are usually the most complex. And particularly if you have already placed your trust in a medical professional, you really don’t want to put your claim into the hands of a solicitor who is not a specialist in this sort of claim.
DEVIZES MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CLAIM ? CALL(01722) 422300
At the time of writing this blog, none of the Devizes based law firms have a medical negligence specialist. We are Wiltshire based Solicitors and, fortunately, we do. And we are just based down the road in Salisbury and Amesbury.
GENUINE MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE SPECIALISTS
There are three specialist medical negligence [or clinical negligence – it’s the same thing] panels or quality marks – no Devizes Solicitors are on any of them – we are on all 3 i.e.
o Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel – with just two members in Wiltshire
o AvMA Medical Negligence Panel –the independent panel run by Action Against Medical Accidents, the UK patient justice charity. This panel also has just two members in Wiltshire
o Legal Services Commission Specialist Quality Mark for Medical Negligence – only around 120 law firms nationwide are considered expert enough for this – that’s less than 1% of all law firms
Our team also includes members of the Specialist Clinical Negligence Solicitors Panel run by Law Assist, and the Law Society Personal Injury Panel.
What’s more, if you decide to appoint us to represent you in your medical negligence claim, your case won’t be dealt with by a call centre operative or unqualified paralegal. Here at solicitors Bonallack and Bishop, all of our medical negligence team are fully qualified specialist medical negligence solicitors – and in addition one of them is also a qualified nurse, so can guarantee we have the right expertise to help you claim compensation.
DO I REALLY NEED A SPECIALIST SOLICITOR?
To quote AvMA;
“Beware of solicitors who imply that they are specialists without accreditation by AvMA or the Law Society, and do not be confused by the term ‘personal injury’ lawyer. Clinical Negligence is a highly specialist field of its own”
