Doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers treat millions of us, either privately or on the NHS each year and the majority of people are happy with the care they receive from them.  Unfortunately, some people suffer the effects of medical error following treatment and they can find themselves physically or mentally worse off.

If you have suffered as a result of poor medical care, it can be difficult to know where to turn.  At Butcher & Barlow we have a team of highly qualified experts, with a wealth of experience in this extremely specialised field to enable you to receive the best advice on what your options are, what is required to achieve your objectives (whether you wish to complain or make a claim for compensation) and the value of your claim. 

We appreciate that medical negligence litigation may sometimes be a lengthy and emotional process, but we combine our in-depth legal and medical knowledge to ensure your case is handled with professionalism, tact and efficiency.  Our aim will be to get you the maximum compensation in the minimum possible amount of time.

The costs of medical negligence claims are variable, but as a result of our experience, we will not take on cases that we think we cannot win.   Accordingly, we are able to offer the added benefit of being able to pursue complaints and claims in appropriate cases under a "no win, no fee" agreement.  


To make an appointment to discuss your potential claim, please contact either Anthony Higham on 0161 764 4062, if you are in the Lancashire area, or Greg Porter on 01606 47523, if you are in the Cheshire area.

What our clients say...

I was overwhelmed by the courtesy and all the efforts to upgrade my compensation claim.  I was given time and explanations for all the steps ... which was beyond my original expectations.  I have already recommended your practice.

Thank you very much for the work you did for me.  It's allowed us to do things we haven't been able to afford.  A life changing sum that will hold us in good stead for years to come!  Thanks!

Sam was very approachable and professional. He is an excellent listener and gave good sound knowledgeable advice. I would recommend anyone to use him.

J Chesters - Litigation - Sandbach - January 2015

Thank you very much indeed for all your hard work during this claim, and achieving this wonderful result when I began to give up there ever being any good result at all.

Jean Pearson - Litigation - Runcorn - January 2015

We would like to inform anyone who needs a very good solicitor in the North West of Mr Greg Porter at Butcher & Barlow.  We live in Scotland.  Unfortunately our daughter died suddenly and we then had to find a solicitor who could continue with a complicated on going case. We were recommended to Mr Porter.
We found him to be extremely professional but approachable.  The main thing for us was that he kept us fully informed throughout the proceedings and gave us all the options available. We were impressed with his professional attitude and would highly recommend him.
