What is Medical Negligence?

Thompsons is proud to work with the UK’s major health unions to campaign for safe staffing levels, proper training and stringent health and safety measures, to ensure our health services are able to deliver world class treatment and care.

Despite the best efforts of all involved, increased demand and ever tighter budgets mean that medical negligence or medical accidents can and do occur.

If you think you’ve been injured as a result of medical treatment, or were given a misdiagnosis in the last three years, contact your union to be referred to our specialist medical negligence team for advice.

Our solicitors are recognised by the Law Society’s Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme and deal with the full range of clinical negligence claims, from prescription errors through to injuries of the upmost severity.

If you’re concerned you’ve been the victim of medical negligence, you can trust Thompsons to secure you the right level of compensation to give you financial security, both now and in the future.

An initial assessment is free of charge so contact your union legal scheme to see how we can help. Learn more about your union legal service’s medical negligence scheme here.

The national practice lead of our clinical negligence team talks through the process of making a medical negligence claim, and how we can help you.
