Medical Negligence

Fortunately most people’s experience of the medical profession is a positive one where they receive a high standard of treatment and care. If, however, you or a loved one are one of the unfortunate few who have been injured due to the incompetence or lack of care of those providing your treatment, then you may be entitled to compensation.

We understand the misery and frustration that injuries caused by negligent medical treatment can cause. The law relating to medical negligence is particularly complex and it is often difficult for those who have suffered, to get clear answers to their questions and to understand why things have gone wrong.

Pursuing a claim for compensation is an unfamiliar process for most people. As well as coping with the effects of your injury or the loss of a loved one you are likely to have some immediate questions or concerns. What should you do? Who should you contact? Are you entitled to compensation at all and if so how much? What will it cost, if anything, to bring a claim?

Choosing the right solicitor to guide you through the maze and answer your questions in probably the most important decision you will make at this time. Your solicitor will be with you throughout the whole process, removing the stress and worries associated with your claim and positively assisting with treatment and rehabilitation to allow you to concentrate on your recovery. Finally as your claim nears its conclusion your solicitor will use their skill, knowledge and expertise to ensure that you receive full and just compensation for the injuries you have suffered and their financial implications.

Henshaw Pratt Injury Solicitors are able and would love to help you at this difficult time. Our dedicated and experienced team of solicitors have the knowledge and expertise to handle your medical negligence claim effectively and deliver the results you deserve.

How it works

To receive our help simply give us a call on our freephone number 0800 138 5431 or use the enquiry button at the top of the page. We will then arrange to see you wherever is most convenient for you, whether that’s at your home, in hospital or at one of our offices.

At the first meeting we will take time to listen to your concerns and find out what’s really important to you. It’s not until we fully understand your particular circumstances that we can use our skill and expertise to provide the perfect solution for you. We will answer your initial questions and, if you are happy for us to do so we will begin work on your case without delay. We know, from experience, that the sooner we can begin work, the quicker your concerns can be dealt with and a better outcome achieved.

If you are happy for us to proceed we will carry out a thorough investigation into your treatment and begin to evaluate your claim. Where there are financial concerns we will seek an early interim payment to ease your immediate worries and where treatment is required we will seek funding for private treatment to avoid unnecessary delays and allow you to recover as quickly as possible.

The final stage of the process is to ensure that you receive full and just compensation for the injuries you have suffered. This can only be achieved once we are satisfied that you have completed your recovery and the full implications of your injuries are fully understood. At that point we can use our skills to negotiate the right settlement for you.

Why Choose Us

As a firm accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers we have signed up to a code of conduct that ensures the interests of you, the victim, are put first. APIL accreditation is a kitemark of competence and specialist expertise for solicitors dealing with personal injury claims. The firm was one of the first firms nationally to receive this award.

What Will It Cost


There are two basic types of funding we will consider using to pursue your claim, neither of which will cost you a penny personally.

You may already have insurance to cover the cost of legal representation. This is often included as an additional extra on household and motor insurance policies. We will explore this option with you and contact the insurers on your behalf to agree to our appointment.

Some insurers may seek to appoint their own preferred solicitors. However, please remember that it is your claim and you have the right to choose your own solicitor to pursue your claim.

The second option is to pursue the claim under a Conditional Fee Agreement (often called a “No Win No Fee” Agreement). Again we will discuss this in some detail with you. However we operate the agreements so that there will be no personal cost to you, whether you win or lose the claim and, in the event of a successful claim, you will keep 100% of the compensation awarded.
