Medical & Clinical Negligence

With members of the specialist Law Society Panel and of Action against Medical Accidents, Wake Smith has a strong team of Medical & Clinical Negligence Solicitors to help you.

The dedicated Sheffeld based team of lawyers offer advice and representation to Claimants nationally on all matters relating to medical & clinical negligence. We are confident that we can offer advice in a friendly, approachable manner and in a language which avoids legal jargon.

Cases may arise from all aspects of NHS or private care, GP's, therapists, dentists or opticians. We also have a successful track record in medical product and medicine liability claims and in multi-Claimant cases, including a recent case which saw the department successfully represented over 400 claimants in one action. We have also successfully represented clients under the Human Rights Act.

Few cases will need to go to court. However, if court proceedings are necessary the department has experience at all levels including the Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and success in the European Court of Justice.

Please look at individual profiles to see what our clients say about us.

The causes of Medical & Clinical Negligence can be numerous but the following represent common cases:

  • Birth and post natal Injury
  • Surgical error
  • Care and treatment of the Elderly
  • Misdiagnosis of condition, including failure to diagnose cancer.
  • Treatment without consent
  • Cosmetic Surgery
  • Fatal accidents, including representation at Inquests.
