    Whatever may have caused you injury, if you live in the Liverpool area and have experienced medical negligence our national team of specialist solicitors can help.

    When you have experienced injury because of medical negligence, claiming compensation could help you secure yours and your family’s future.

    Of course, you may be more interested in seeking justice for your injuries and doing whatever you can to ensure that vital patient safety lessons are learned so this does not happen to anyone else.

    Whatever your motivations, our specialist medical negligence team is the one you need to take you through the process.

    Our team operates across England & Wales, and so has experience bringing claims against medical institutions in and around Liverpool. These include Liverpool Women’s Hospital, University Aintree Hospital NHS Trust, and others for a wide variety of claims including serious birth injuries.

    Find out more about our main areas of claim at the links below:

    How do I know I have a medical negligence claim?

    You will usually have a medical negligence claim if the treatment or care you received has resulted in an injury, or that any existing condition became worse due to that treatment.

    You will usually need to bring a claim within three years of the alleged negligent treatment, or from the date at which you became aware it was negligent. There are exceptions to this, including for children who have until their 21st birthday to bring a claim, or adults with mental difficulties who have no time limit on claims.

    You can find out more about how we identify negligence and make a claim in our medical negligence guide.

    How much compensation might I receive for a claim?

    This will depend entirely on your particular circumstances. We will therefore need to speak with you first in order to assess the value of your claim.

    You can find out more about how this is calculated here.

    How can I pay for the legal costs?

    Often medical negligence claims will proceed with a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), otherwise known as ‘No Win No Fee’ funding. This ensures that – should your case be unsuccessful – you will have nothing to pay.

    We can also help with Legal Aid funding for particular cases involving children.

    Find out more about how to fund a claim here.

    How long will a claim take?

    This depends on a number of factors, for example if the person or organisation you are claiming against denies there was a fault. However it can take years to reach a settlement in some cases.

    You can find out more about this here.
