Areas of Personal Injury Law We Specialise In

Medical Negligence

Medical Mishaps

When a medical professional makes a mistake and that mistake is negligent, the person who suffers harm will have a claim against the medical professional, or the hospital or other institution in which they work. We can help you establish negligence through expert advice.

 

Medical Misdiagnosis

When a medical professional negligently misdiagnoses or fails to diagnose an illness or condition, the consequences can be extremely serious. Such a failure can lead to life-long trauma and the need for treatment and care.

 

Birth Trauma

Unfortunately, when medical professionals are providing care for a person giving birth, sometimes mistakes happen. Sometimes these mistakes lead to catastrophic results.

 

Public Liability

You might have slipped, tripped, or fallen and been badly injured – we can help navigate these messy situations and get you the compensation you deserve.

Workers Compensation

If you suffer a physical or mental injury at work, we can help you manage your workers compensation claim and help you recover financially. Sometimes a work injury is caused by an employer’s negligence, sometimes not, but in either case you will be able to claim some financial compensation and get the medical treatment you need.

No win, no fee

You are concerned about what your case may cost, so we have made sure that there are no up-front fees and we operate on a no-win no-fee basis, which means that you don’t pay us unless your claim is successful.

We also pay for disbursements, such as expert medical reports and court fees, which you don’t have to repay us if you don’t win your case.

You Don’t Have to See Us in Person

Because you’ve been injured you may be less mobile - that can make it harder for you to come and see us in person at our office. If you think we’re the law firm for you, we can set up your initial consultation using video or telephone conferencing and if necessary, we can come to you. You’ve been through enough, let us make getting proper compensation as easy for you as possible.

If you think we can help, we’d like to hear from you
