People living in Wincanton are fortunate to have the highly rated Wincanton Community Hospital in their town. However, despite the hospital’s excellent reputation and level of care, sometimes standards do slip and mistakes are made. In any other walk of life, mistakes can often be worked around and a simple apology will do. In a medical setting, though, that’s not always the case.
If you’ve been affected by a medical professional incorrectly diagnosing or treating you at Wincanton Community Hospital [or at any of the other hospitals, clinics or GP surgeries covering the Wincanton area], the results can be extremely distressing. You could be caused serious injury or harm or even have your life threatened. As a result, you may well be entitled to claim compensation for medical negligence.

WHY SPECIALIST MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE ADVICE IS SO IMPORTANT
Don’t just take our word for it. To quote from their website of leading patient justice charity AvMA [ Action against Medical Accidents]
“Whenever choosing a solicitor in clinical negligence look for our quality mark. We can only recommend solicitors who we have accredited through our robust and independent system. Beware of solicitors who imply that they are specialists without accreditation by AvMA or the Law Society.”
Quite a few law firms do medical negligence work and some claim to be specialists – but, in reality, very few actually are. The difficulty of medical negligence work is often underestimated and the solicitors who specialise in it need skills spanning both medical negligence law and medical practice. Why? Because the evidence needed to support your claim will involve complex medical records, reports, medical terminology and may have to involve, for example, examination of your x-rays to construct a convincing argument on your behalf. Only specialist medical solicitors have these skills.
HOW CAN I IDENTIFY A SPECIALIST SOLICITOR?
Claiming specialist knowledge means nothing unless you can prove your credentials. Our team’s expertise is proven by our quality mark and membership of both leading specialist legal panels.
o Out of 11,000 law firms in England and Wales, we are one of just 120 to be awarded the Legal Services Commission Specialist Quality Mark for Clinical Negligence [another term for Medical Negligence]
o Furthermore there are just a couple of hundred solicitors nationwide to have been granted membership of either of the specialist medical negligence solicitors’ panels run by the Action against Medical Accidents and the Law Society itself. Our team includes members of both these panels.
