So if you’re based in the Oxford area, and are looking for an expert team of specialist medical negligence solicitors to make a claim on your behalf, we’re ideally placed to help.
Our team in Oxford have made successful claims against various local hospital trusts, including Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust, Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Great Western Hospitals Foundation Trust and Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
We have also made successful claims against private hospitals and other private clinics throughout the region as well as GP practices.
Unfortunately it is not always possible to restore life to exactly as it was before your injury, but our team have the specialist knowledge and experience to help you get as close as reasonably possible.
If you have experienced medical care which has resulted in an injury, or a condition has been made worse as a result of treatment, then you may have a claim for medical negligence.
Ordinarily, a claim will need to be brought within three years of the alleged negligence, or three years from when you became aware of the alleged negligence. However if you are bringing a claim for a child you will have until their 21st birthday to claim, and on behalf of an adult with mental difficulties there is no time limit.
The amount of compensation recovered for a claim depends on the particular injury you have suffered, so you will need to speak to us in order for us to advise you on this further.
We have a range of funding options for medical negligence claims, including ‘no win, no fee’ (also known as a conditional fee agreement) where – should your claim be unsuccessful – you will have nothing to pay.
We do our utmost to bring a claim to a conclusion as quickly as reasonably possible, but the amount of time it will take depends on a number of different factors. For example, should the person or organisation you are claiming against deny liability, the case could take longer to resolve.
“I would recommend you to anyone who needs help and advice with medical law as I found you easy to talk to and you went through all the options I could take and nothing was too much trouble”.
