At some time in our lives most of us need medical treatment of one kind or another and that’s usually a positive experience. However, should you find yourself in a situation where this manifestly isn’t the case, you will need a professional voice to speak for you, a bank of experience to work with you on issues involved and a wealth of expertise to help you make the right decisions and get the best results.
Our award-winning Clinical Negligence team has had many years of experience in dealing with difficult, often emotional situations and we’re well aware that at a time of health concerns and their consequences you are likely to be feeling particularly vulnerable and anxious.
Making sure your voice is heard, in the right place and by the right people is sometimes all that’s needed and we can advise and guide on the most effective and correct ways to register a complaint.
Our team will provide all of the above and have an enviable track record when it comes to landmark cases. If you come up against a problem with your health treatment, come and talk to us.
Every case with which we deal is as individual as the people involved and our role is to help define the issues involved, assess the strength of any claim, present you with different options and legal routes available to you and ensure you understand what’s going on at every step along the way.
Cases vary from simple, straightforward and easily settled to others which are far more complex. For example you may find yourself in a situation where the family breadwinner is unable to work for weeks or months or it may be that further surgery is called for as a result of negligence. In some cases, major and costly adaptations may be required for your home or expensive, ongoing care may be needed. Cases such as these call for realistic financial compensation to enable you and your family to cope. We’re here to help make that happen.
We do offer conditional fees, if you do need to consult us, please be assured your case will be dealt with professionally and sensitively. We offer an initial free interview for up to an hour in cases where clinical negligence is alleged. We will give you full and frank advice on costs involved and funding alternatives. It is also worthwhile checking with your insurance company to see whether you are covered for any legal expenses.
Collins has an enviable reputation in clinical negligence and over the last three years (If you’ll forgive us for blowing our own trumpet) have swept the board with awards for our litigation expertise.
