In every successful compensation claim for clinical negligence breach of duty must be proven.

What to Consider When Choosing a Solicitor
If you are asking the question, how do I find the best solicitors near me?, then you need to take a step back and reconsider. Location is not as important as finding a solicitor with experience in claiming compensation from the NHS and other large healthcare providers. Any good negligence solicitor will be able to answer yes to the following three questions:
1) Can you take on my case under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)?
2) Can you arrange for me to get a local medical examination?
3) Have you won similar cases in the last two years?

Solicitor Reviews Can be Helpful in Selecting Your Solicitor
If somebody takes the time to review a solicitor, then this is a good source of information. However, remember that some reviews can be untruthful or even completely fake. It is best that you check any facts you get from online review sites with friends, family and co-workers to find out if they have had experience of dealing with the specific solicitor, and whether their experience correlates with the review.

Dental Negligence Claims UK
When it comes to making dental negligence claims UK residents need to understand that if the injury they have sustained has caused cosmetic damage to the face or teeth, their negligence solicitor needs to be familiar with claiming for more intangible symptoms such as psychological trauma and stress.
Legal Expert knows that when we make a dental negligence claim, we may need to arrange for an independent evaluation of the victim’s psychological health to support the case.
GP & Doctor Negligence Claims
Proving liability in a GP or doctor negligence case can be difficult. Your GP is responsible for making the initial diagnosis of your condition. However, because they are generalists, they lack the specialist knowledge to deal with exotic medical conditions. Therefore, proving they were negligent is tricky, as they are not expected to know everything about every illness.
Legal Expert can arrange for you to get a local medical examination, which we can use to create a medical opinion to support your case.
Care Home Negligence Cases
In the majority of care home negligence cases, the root cause is a lowering in the standard of care due to staff overwork or insufficient training. This can lead to residents coming to harm through some sort of accident such as a slip, trip or fall due to insufficient supervision. It can also cause medical conditions to go unnoticed by care staff.
If you need to claim compensation for negligence in a care home that has affected a relative, the Legal Expert claims service is available to residents of Hemel Hempstead and the whole of the UK.
