In order to have a viable reason for claiming compensation for negligence, you will need to be able to prove three things:
- That the medical professional or health care service had a duty to cate care of your health.
- That the medical professional or health care service failed to fulfil this duty in some way, which lead to the worsening of your medical condition of contracting an additional one.

All NHS & GP medical negligence solicitors are not equal. Choosing a local firm may seem like the easy option, but are they the best option? Claiming for clinical negligence compensation is a complex process. Additionally, no healthcare service wants to be found guilty of negligence and therefore will defend their case aggressively. Only by engaging a legal firm that has plenty of experience in claiming negligence compensation can you be sure to have the best chance of winning your case. The better your solicitor the more compensation you are likely to be awarded.
Legal Expert has a proven track record of winning difficult negligence cases for its clients, and we always aim to win the highest amount of compensation possible. Below is detailed some of the types of negligence cases we have successfully won in the past on behalf of our clients.
Hospital Negligence Solicitors
Legal Expert has a number of hospital negligence solicitors excellent on its team. Claiming for negligence against a hospital can be complicated, and it will almost always involve the victim of the negligence needing to present some type of third-party expert medical opinion in support of their case. This is something that Legal Expert can arrange for you as part of our national claims service.
Cases of Dental Negligence
Many medical compensation lawyers struggle when it comes to making dental negligence claims. In many cases, a person that is injured during dental surgery may have facial scarring or other cosmetic injuries. This means that a compensation claim will comprise of more than simply damages for the pain and suffering caused. Legal Expert can help you claim for the physiological trauma caused by receiving a serious cosmetic injury, and also for the long-term or even permanent disfigurement you may have.
GP Negligence Claims
Making a negligence claim against a GP can be difficult. It can be very hard to prove that your GP actually made an error in your treatment. This is because most usually when any major treatment is required, your GP will refer you to a specialist who would then become responsible for your health. Legal Expert has experience in pressing GP claims and we can help residents of Solihull to do so.
Cancer negligence claims are amongst the most serious of all negligence claims and here at Legal Expert we always approach them with due consideration. Even a short delay in receiving the correct treatment can be life-threatening in advanced cases of cancer. This means that misdiagnosis of the type of cancer a patient has is a very serious mistake. Legal Expert can assist victims of cancer negligence and also their next of kind in claiming compensation.
Cases of Nursing Home Negligence
Claiming for negligence that occurred in a care home is something that Legal Expert is well experienced in. These kinds of cases are unfortunately very common. Care homes are required to provide a specific level of care for their residents. Unfortunately, lack of funding and overwork means that often the care level slips, and this is where Legal Expert can help. We can claim compensation for the victim of the negligence, or if they are unable to do so for some reason, we can claim on behalf of a dependant.
Childbirth Medical Negligence Claims
Fortunately, childbirth negligence claims are rare, but when they do occur they can be truly tragic. Even a short period of time without oxygen during the delivery can leave the baby with serious brain damage for the rest of their lives. The mother is also at risk during the surgical process of birthing. In extreme cases, both the mother and baby can suffer. Therefore, Legal Expert always approaches childbirth medical negligence claims with compassion.
