At Robert G Sinclair Solicitors we understand fully what you may be going through and are strong advocates of patient care.

What Is Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence is when medical professionals make mistakes or fail in their duty of care to you, leading to injury or making an existing condition worse. There are a number of ways that medical negligence can happen, such as misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment or surgical mistakes.

Making a claim can result in gaining a better understanding of what has happened, compensation for negligence and to help other patients in the future avoid the same happening again.
