Shrewsbury Medical Negligence Solicitors No Win No Fee
By Stephen Hicks. Last Updated 4th January 2022. Welcome to our guide on hiring medical negligence solicitors for Shrewsbury claims. People put their trust in doctors, nurses, clinicians, dentists and care home staff every day. These people have a responsibility, a duty, to give us a good standard of care according to the training and knowledge they have gained as well as the protocols that have been set out for them. If they do not deliver this care and mistakes are made or protocol is not followed, you could be left with injuries or illnesses that may have been preventable. In such scenarios, a claim for clinical negligence in response may be possible.
It is not always just physical effects that medical negligence can cause, either. Emotional and mental health can also be affected by what is seen by some patients as a breach of trust they had in the professional(s) handling their care. This can leave people fearful of getting medical help in the future, amongst other issues.
It is not only the physical and mental health that can be affected, however. Clinical negligence can also impact the finances of a victim and their dependents. Medical negligence solicitors in Shrewsbury, Birmingham, Manchester and other parts of the country are working tirelessly day after day to secure compensation for patients affected by a breach in the duty of care that medical staff owed their patients.

Finding the Right Solicitor
If you decide to hire a solicitor to support your medical negligence case, then choosing someone to act on your behalf calls for some research to be done before a choice is made. There are several different ways of going about this, and we have listed some ideas below.
Talk to people you know, whether friends, family, co-workers or acquaintances – who have they used? Did they get a good service? Were their claims similar to yours?
Read online reviews – But do remember that not every case is the same, so be sure to look for case studies as similar to yours as you can.
Talk to Legal Expert – We can advise you on whether you’d be likely to have a valid claim. We can also provide information on different types of clinical negligence claims and compensation and on the solicitors covering your area. This allows you to make a fully informed decision. If we find that you have strong grounds to start a claim, we can put you in touch with our panel of solicitors for support.
Best Solicitors Near me
When you’re looking for a solicitor, you’re likely to want to search with enquiries such as ‘best solicitors near me’. However, this isn’t necessarily the wisest choice. The nearest solicitor to you may not have the experience and knowledge needed to properly fight your case, and this could have an effect on the compensation you receive.
These days, it is really not necessary to have a local solicitor for your case. Happily, Legal Expert has a panel of medical negligence solicitors who can support claims in Shrewsbury and other areas of the UK.
People these days leave reviews if they have experienced a service that was good or bad, so finding solicitor reviews to read before making a choice may prove useful. However, it’s worth checking that information provided within a review is accurate and up to date. At Legal Expert, we have a wealth of additional information on our panel of solicitors.
Claims our team covering Shrewsbury and Shropshire can cover
A huge variety of incidents can happen while you are under the care of a clinician which is why you need to be using a solicitor that knows the type of claim you’re pursuing inside out. Legal Expert can help with this, by providing a solicitor to cover the specific claims type you are looking to put forward.
Some of the most common incidents are listed below, but we can also cover cases outside of this remit so do not forget to call us if you are unsure as to whether we can help – we are sure we can.
Making cancer medical negligence claims
One of the most worrying medical conditions these days is cancer, which is why getting the right diagnosis and treatment early can make all the difference to the prognosis and the outlook of the patient. Cancer medical negligence claims are more common than you would think, and the seriousness of these types of claims cannot be underestimated. Common claims may cover:
- Surgical errors
- Late/missed diagnosis
- Chemotherapy mistakes
- Treatment protocol not followed
Whether your claim falls under the above categories or not, we are sure to be able to help put you in touch with the solicitor that best suits your requirements.
Making Birth Injury Negligence Claims
Medical negligence during the birth of a child can have horrendous consequences, which are not limited to the health of the child. Whether the mother or child have suffered ill-health or injury during the birth because of something medical staff have done incorrectly or not done at all, then this can result in anything from cerebral palsy claims to stillbirth negligence cases, to pre-eclampsia claims and tear injuries to the mother.
The team we have on hand to take your call will listen carefully to your story with sympathy and compassion. We know how hard this time can be and we will do all we can to ensure that we provide the greatest of care and the best solicitor possible to handle your case.
Making GP Medical Negligence Claims
A GP is usually the person we see first when we become ill or injured. However, it is crucial that our GPs provide the right advice/medication/referrals at this point, to ensure we get the right care. If they fail to do so, their inaction or incorrect action can be classed as negligence. We can provide medical negligence solicitors for Shrewsbury claims covering GP surgeries, both private and NHS, in order to fight your claim.
Making Care Home Negligence Claims
The choice of a care home for a loved one is almost always an agonising decision, but if the standard of care given is not up to scratch, this can cause not only physical issues but emotional and mental trauma as well. In extreme cases, this can even lead to the death of the person we entrusted into the care of others.
Care home negligence cases can range from the lack of control of an infection, failure to look after a primary need or even lack of supervision leading to falls. If your loved one has been unfortunate enough to have suffered negligence while in a care home, then Legal Expert will help you to fight their case for them.
Making Dental Negligence Claims
Whether you’re having cosmetic dentistry in a private clinic or a tooth extraction in an NHS clinic, when dentistry goes wrong it can have a marked effect on both the oral health and the confidence of the patient – after all, our smile is one of the primary things people notice when they meet us.
Dental negligence claims across the UK are being pursued each day, and we can help you with yours. Whether you have suffered poor infection control, errors with a filling, root canal or extraction or another dental mistake, you should have someone on your side to fight your corner, and we can help with that.
When is a hospital negligent?
If a hospital has failed you in any of the following ways, then you may be able to pursue claims for compensation:
- Transfusion of blood or products errors
- Errors during surgical procedures
- Incorrect medicines dispensed or prescribed
- Late or missed or misdiagnoses
Of course, there are many more errors that can be made in a hospital, and if they have happened due to negligence, then Legal Expert could potentially help you to claim.
