Medical malpractice

The are easy to contact, deal with urgent matters well, and are effective’. Chambers and Partners 2018

Our team of highly experienced solicitors advise on a wide range of medical malpractice matters from minor injuries and misdiagnoses to claims of the utmost severity.

We have a proven track record of successfully defending healthcare professionals across the spectrum. Examples include, doctors, dentists, nurses, podiatric surgeons and chiropodists.

We receive instructions from a wide range of healthcare providers across the sector including independent healthcare providers, insurers, defence organisations, NHS trusts, trade unions, royal colleges and private individuals.

Our medical malpractice dates back to the founding of LeBrasseur and Oakley in 1881. We have been involved in some of the most notable and significant cases including Bolam v Friern Hospital Management Committee (1957) which established the Bolam test and Sidaway v Bethlem Royal Hospital (1985).

We have been instructed in many high value claims (in excess of £1 million) and in numerous high profile cases in the High Court and Court of Appeal.

Our objective is simple: to add value to our clients’ services by understanding their unique requirements and commercial realities.
