Clinical negligence (or medical negligence) is a breach of duty of care by a healthcare professional or expert. We all hope that when the situation arises we will receive the highest levels of care, but regrettably problems can arise, standards of care may not be met and sometimes things can go wrong.
At Simpkins & Co Solicitors we are experienced in making successful clinical negligence and medical negligence claims arising out of the NHS and the private healthcare sector, which can include cosmetic surgery or dental work. When required, we instruct some of the most reputable barristers in Personal Injury/Clinical Negligence at 9 Gough Square, the Chambers of Grahame Aldous QC, adding to your peace of mind.

Unlike some larger, national law firms, at Simpkins & Co you will be assigned a personal solicitor to manage your case. You can be assured that we will handle your situation sensitively and sympathetically, understanding that the details and circumstances may be distressing to you.
From our offices in Highcliffe in Dorset and Trafalgar Square in central London, we offer a free initial consultation to help and advise potential clients whether to proceed and make a claim.
We will discuss with you how the medical negligence has impacted on your health and wellbeing before advising you to proceed with a compensation claim. We will always treat you as an individual and offer you specialist advice and support in bringing a successful clinical negligence claim.
Examples of Clinical Negligence claims can include:
- Pregnancy issues and maternal or infant birth injury
- Midwifery errors
- Surgical claims including general surgery, gynecological, neuro and cardio thoracic
- Anaesthetic-related problems

What Are The Costs Of Legal Advice?
In the first instance we offer a FREE initial consultation with a personal injury specialist from Simpkins & Co Solicitors. We will discuss the circumstances of your potential claim and before proceeding will advise you on your chances of winning.
Legal aid for clinical negligence cases in the UK is no longer available. However, if you win your case the Defendant (other side) will be liable to pay your legal fees and your compensation.
Simpkins & Co Solicitors may be able to act on a no win no fee basis, or fixed fee arrangement, plus we can advise you on whether you may have legal expenses insurance cover already in place via other means.
This will be fully explained at your FREE initial consultation.
Other funding options will also be explored and if available they will be fully explained to you
