With offices across Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire, including Lincoln, Grimsby and Hull, our professional and caring solicitors can help.
Medical Negligence Claims
Healthcare professionals owe their patients a duty of care. Medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence) is when a healthcare professional breaches that duty of care and the patient is injured or an illness worsens as a result of that breach.
Have you or a loved one suffered an injury due to poor care from a GP, hospital, or other medical professionals? Our experienced medical negligence lawyers will handle your medical negligence claim to ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
We can advise if you have received improper, unskilled or negligent treatment by a healthcare professional, GP or dentist.

Can you make a medical negligence claim?
If it can be shown that there was medical negligence, and as a result of that negligence, you have suffered additional harm, we will help ensure that you are compensated accordingly.
The general time limit for making a claim is three years from the date of the treatment in question. For cases involving children, the three years starts from the date they turn 18. However, there are some exceptions to this rule, for example, where a person’s date of knowledge differs from the date of treatment, in fatal cases and where an adult lacks capacity. We would, therefore, encourage anyone to get in touch with us even if they think this time limit has passed.
We know that clients worry about how much it will cost to pursue a medical negligence claim. We are obliged to provide you with information about all funding options that are available and which would be the best option for you, in line with the Solicitors’ Code of Conduct, and Bridge McFarland LLP are able to offer all types of funding from *legal aid to a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement.
If you think you may have a claim, contact us for a free initial consultation. Every case is different, and we would advise you to give one of our friendly team a call to discuss your matter confidentially and with no obligation.
