Bringing a clinical negligence claim (also known as a medical negligence claim) requires a lawyer who has specialist legal and medical knowledge, rather than a generalist personal injury lawyer.

A good Clinical Negligence Lawyer will understand the emotional and physical needs of those affected by negligent treatment, and will be able to recognise what went wrong.

They will also know when to seek Initial Payments in circumstances where immediate financial support is important. Membership of AvMA or The Law Society Medical Negligence Panel are the best indicators that the lawyer you speak to has the correct experience and skills.
