Clinical Negligence Practice Group

“This leading set attracts vast acclaim for its strength in depth.” “Its expertise ranges from high-value catastrophic injury, birth injury and surgical negligence cases to lower value dental negligence claims. Members represent both claimants and defendants, and undertake an increasing amount of instructions from major defence organisations in South West England and Wales.” Chambers UK, Clinical Negligence (2018)


Members of our clinical negligence practice group provide expert advice and representation in cases at all levels of complexity and seriousness in the South West and nationally.

All aspects of clinical negligence work are undertaken including:

  • Catastrophic injuries
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Cases in which complex issues of causation arise
  • Inquests
  • Obstetric and neonatal injuries
  • Oncology
  • Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis claims
  • Neonatal claims
  • Perinatal and acquired brain injury
  • Surgical negligence

Members offer a comprehensive knowledge of medical fields including gynaecology, neurology and oncology. The team also has experience in dental negligence, ophthalmic negligence and in medical product liability.

We act for claimants and defendants and work on behalf of a very wide range of clients including private individuals, NHS Trusts, medical defence organisations and private medical and related institutions.

Members also provide representation at coroners’ inquests in which death has followed medical treatment.

Members are prepared to consider cases on a conditional fee basis.

Our team regularly delivers lectures to solicitors and other professionals on recent developments in the law and practice. If you are interested in arranging a lecture then please contact our clerks.

Our friendly and efficient team of clerks will be happy to answer any of your questions.

“The clerking team is described as ‘extremely efficient’. They are modern, corporate and streamlined in their work. You feel like you’re walking into a place of business that means business.” Chambers UK, Clinical Negligence (2016)
