Hospital Negligence

A hospital should be a safe place where you can expect the highest standard of care.  Unfortunately the quality of treatment received may sometimes not be as expected and this could have life changing consequences.

We have helped many clients in cases involving:

  • Surgical mistakes
  • Incorrect medications
  • Misdiagnosis of a condition
  • Delays in providing treatment
  • A & E Negligence

If you think you have received negligent treatment or poor care you must seek legal advice immediately – there are strict time limits in place for making a claim, and a formal complaints process to go through before we can make a claim on your behalf.

Our specialist team here at Butcher & Barlow can advise you on the claims process.  It may be that there has been a genuine misunderstanding or a problem in communication and we will wait for the explanation from the hospital before assessing whether you have a claim.  If we consider that you do have a claim we will seek compensation on your behalf to cover any remedial treatment or loss of earnings you may have suffered.

We may be able to act for you on a No Win, No Fee basis, dependent upon the circumstances.

What our clients say

Jeanette White

I wanted to go with a local solicitor for my clinical negligence claim. I found Greg Porter to be extremely sympathetic and very helpful, which is why I chose Butcher & Barlow. I was kept informed at every stage in writing. The medical professionals I saw throughout my journey commented on how Greg was thorough with attention to detail. I would highly recommend Greg Porter, he is very professional in his work. I had a really good outcome to my claim.
