If you believe you or a loved-one may have been injured as a result of a medical error please contact us without delay.  The law imposes time limits on the pursuit of such claims and it is important a thorough assessment of the potential claim is made before incurring the risk and expense of litigation.  We typically offer a contingency fee arrangement which means you do not have the added burden of funding the claim; the legal fee is paid out of compensation awarded at the end of the case.

We have access to some of the best medical experts available who have proved themselves to be able to provide an unbiased expert opinion on the care provided. We also ensure the full extent of the client’s loss, including cost of future care is maximised. We strive to resolve cases through negotiation, and we use mediation in the appropriate circumstances. When issues cannot be resolved through these channels, we will fight for your rights and aggressively pursue a fair solution through the courts.
