Slater and Gordon’s Clinical Negligence Team Achieves Tier 1 Ranking

Slater and Gordon’s Clinical Negligence department is the only clinical negligence department in the North West to have been awarded a Tier 1 ranking by the independent legal guide, the Legal 500

The firm is described by the Legal 500 as a “real force in the North West market” with an “incredibly strong group of real clinical negligence experts”.

In addition to the group ranking, many of our experts are named individually, including Ian Cohen who heads the Liverpool office. Jenny Urwin is described as having “specialist expertise,” Julia Hamilton is “first class”. Gill Edwards is recommended for brain and spinal injury cases and Claire Horton is recommended for children.

This achievement reflects the successful integration of the three teams from Slater and Gordon, Pannone and Fentons Solicitors. In 2014, Slater and Gordon and Pannone were among four Tier 1 firms. Combining our wealth of expertise has led to this sole ranking. This is a position that we are of course, immensely proud of and one we will continue to work hard to retain, helping victims of clinical negligence to pursue claims for compensation.

The Legal 500 provides comprehensive worldwide coverage on legal services providers in over 100 countries. Used by commercial and private clients, corporate counsel, CEOs, FDs and professional advisers - as well as by other referrers of work both nationally and internationally - the series is widely regarded as offering an important judgement of law firm capabilities.

When a medical diagnosis, a surgical procedure or a hospital treatment goes wrong in the NHS or privately, and the mistake or accident was due to incompetence or lack of judgement by a doctor, surgeon or healthcare professional; you need an expert team of Medical Negligence Solicitors to represent you because medical negligence claims can be difficult to prove.

Medical and Clinical Negligence claims are different from personal injury claims in that they require you, the claimant, to prove both that the healthcare professional who treated you failed to carry out their responsibilities, and that this is what caused you to be in the position you are now in.

Our team of Clinical & Medical Negligence Solicitors are experts in dealing with NHS and medical negligence claims ranging from medical misdiagnosis to amputations, cancer, nerve injuries, spinal cord injuries, birth injuries, head and brain injuries and negligence claims against doctors, surgeons and hospitals.

As one of the largest law Firms in the UK with more than 1,400 staff, we are in a very strong position to use all our combined legal expertise to get the best possible results for people injured by medical negligence, through no fault of their own.

Many of our Clinical and Medical Negligence Claims are funded by a Conditional Fee Agreement, more commonly known as a No Win, No Fee agreement. This means there is no financial risk to you.
