A competent clinical negligence lawyer will advise on cases that have involved a degree of clinical negligence. Lawyer services include guidance, of course, but they also include representation in cases which involve seeking compensation. In many such instances, ones which have sadly resulted in permanent paralysis or even death, the financial awards can involve many millions of pounds.
People who contact a clinical negligence lawyer for the first time are often taken aback by how friendly and approachable the legal specialist is. It’s worth bearing in mind that a clinical negligence lawyer is not only an expert in legal matters; he or she is also trained in dealing with people in an understanding manner. Every client who visits a clinical negligence lawyer can expect a professional approach and a warm welcome.
Under British law, patients in hospitals and health centres are entitled to receive a certain level of competent, safe care. When they fail to receive it, a clinical negligence lawyer should be called in immediately. Many such instances have resulted in extremely serious injuries and conditions, and even fatalities. The clinical negligence lawyer can act on the client’s behalf from the outset, helping to gain the maximum possible compensation award.
Some of the most upsetting cases involve those that have affected babies. Occasionally, a new-born baby is starved of oxygen at birth, and this can sadly lead to permanent brain damage. A clinical negligence lawyer will help parents to claim the compensation they deserve in these instances. The clinical negligence lawyer will look to bring proceedings against an individual or the relevant medical authority so that they are brought to justice and the chances of a similar thing happening in future are reduced.
Every clinical negligence lawyer knows that mis-diagnosis is a regular occurrence in hospitals. Because of the incompetence of a medical professional, the victim may have to face life without the use of a limb, for example, or with a condition that hadn’t been there in the past. The damages sought by a clinical negligence lawyer will always reflect the seriousness of the victim’s condition.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.
