Fortunately most medical care in the UK is excellent. However, like anyone else, medical staff do make mistakes – and if you have been the victim of a medical error, you may well be entitled to compensation for the pain, suffering and financial losses that you have suffered as a result.
HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO INSTRUCT A SPECIALIST?
To win your medical negligence claim your solicitor may need to read and understand hundreds of pages of medical pages and notes, consider your x-rays, review reports from independent medical negligence experts and produce enough evidence to support your case. This requires a detailed understanding of medicine as well as law – as a result it is really important that the solicitor you instruct is a medical negligence expert.
Unfortunately, there are currently no genuine medical negligence specialists in rural Dorset, left alone in Gillingham itself.
However, here at Bonallack & Bishop, we can help you. Our specialist medical negligence team based in Salisbury regularly represent clients throughout Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset.
OUR ACCREDITED MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE SPECALISTS
The easiest way to identify a specialist medical negligence solicitor is membership of either of two specialist legal panels and Quality Mark accreditation.
Our team includes members of both leading specialist panels
- The Law Society’s own Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme
- The Clinical Negligence Specialist Solicitors Panel run by independent patient charity AvMA [Action against Medical Accidents]
These two panels are amongst the hardest specialist legal panels to get onto – so if you appoint a member of one of these panels to run your medical negligence compensation claim, you can rest assured that someone has already checked that they really know their stuff.
In addition we are one of only a handful of firms in the UK to be awarded the Legal Services Commission Specialist Quality Mark for Clinical Negligence [clinical negligence is just another term for medical negligence].
