Our partnership with AvMA
We understand how life-changing it can be if something goes wrong in a medical situation, and how let down you can feel. We work with AvMA (Action Against Medical Accidents), an independent UK charity which advocates for patient safety and justice. Read more about our partnership with AvMA.
Why choose Slater and Gordon as your legal representative?
We understand just how important the support and guidance AvMA provides to patients who’ve suffered medical negligence is, which is why we’re proud to be part of their panel, providing patients with the legal guidance, support and compassion necessary at what's often a very difficult time.
We strive to ensure that we provide the high level of service our clients would expect from a panel partner of AvMA and ensure the best possible outcome to their case.
Our highly specialist medical negligence team have been representing those who’ve experienced medical negligence for decades, and have been involved in some of the most high-profile and ground-breaking cases.
Having worked with AvMA for many years, we understand exactly what difficulties you face and we'll be with you throughout your case, every step of the way.
We have a strong reputation for achieving outstanding results for medical negligence claims, as well as ensuring that the best available treatment and rehabilitation is also obtained. Independent legal guides such as Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 have ranked our teams highly over the years and consider many of our medical negligence experts to be leaders in their field. Over the years, we've also won and been shortlisted in a number of prestigious legal awards such as the Personal Injury Awards, Manchester Legal Awards, Modern Claim Awards, Wales Legal Awards and the Liverpool Law Society Awards.
Medical team of nurses and midwives
Our team, which spans across England, Scotland and Wales, also includes nurses and midwives who are able to offer bespoke medical advice and guidance in addition to the legal expertise provided by our specialist lawyers.
Treatment and rehabilitation support
In the majority of cases, the sooner that rehabilitation and treatment begins, the better the outcome will be. That's why we make it our priority when someone suffers a serious injury.
We work with some of the best case managers and treatment providers in the UK - not only to ensure that the treatment you receive is the best available, but also to seek early interim payments. This is a key part of our strategy to ensure there's funding to begin as soon as possible, giving you the best chance to maximise recovery and future independence.
No financial risk
The vast majority of medical negligence cases are funded by a No Win No Fee agreement. This means that if you lose your case, there'll be no cost to you - so no financial risk.
Slater and Gordon is also able to offer Legal Aid funding on cases where a child has suffered from a neurological injury at birth or within the early neonatal period, such as cerebral palsy. It’s important to note that not all law firms are able to offer legal aid funding, but Slater and Gordon is an exception.
Once we've taken the details of your case from you, we’ll be able to advise you on which risk-free funding option is best for you.
Providing a seamless end to end service for all your legal needs
Additionally, as we’re one of the largest law firms in the UK, we also have dedicated experts in a wide range of specialist legal services, who can offer bespoke expertise when it’s needed, such as Court of Protection and probate, as well as independent financial planning experts, who can help ensure any compensation received lasts your lifetime and gives you financial protection. Having these bespoke services enables us to provide our clients with an end-to-end seamless service for their legal and financial needs.
