The rating option allows a maximum 5 stars. Were it possible, I would leave 20★★★★★. From the outset when I presented my case up to the conclusion, 4 years later, I was treated with the utmost courtesy and professionalism.
My case was handled by David Thomas and I do not have the words to adequately illustrate how wonderful he was. If I say that since the conclusion of my case I have recommended another client to him and will have no hesitation in doing so again.
Thank you everyone at Simpson Millar and especially David Thomas. My case was successful, thanks to your efforts. The experience was educational and indeed enjoyable. I will be forever grateful to you.Steve
These solicitors in my opinion are the best in this country for you to use. After researching, I decided to place my trust in Simpson Millar. Good access to your solicitor (Sarah Holdsworth). Words cannot express how much I appreciate all your help and kindness in what was a very difficult situation for myself; your easy and friendly manner has made it more tolerable. The offer I received was higher than I expected. The misdiagnosis has obviously affected my life but the compensation will give me sound financial security for the future. I have no hesitation in recommending Simpson Millar to anyone. Mrs S
People We've Helped with Medical Negligence Cases
We have dealt with a huge range of medical negligence cases over the years. You can see some of these with compensation awards for our clients ranging from £3,000 to £12 million in our case studies.
How Do I Claim for Medical Negligence?
To make a successful medical negligence claim, it must be proven that the standard of care you got was below what would be reasonably expected, and that you’ve suffered as a result of that care.
You may have a successful case if a doctor, nurse or hospital treating you failed to:
- Give adequate healthcare
- Keep proper records
- Administer medication
- Perform surgery to an adequate standard
- Diagnose your condition accurately or early enough
Contact us for a free consultation and we can discuss your situation with you, and let you know if we think you have a claim.

Why Make a Medical Negligence Claim?
There are many reasons why you may want to make a Medical Negligence claim. Making a claim can help you to move on and help you to feel a sense of justice. The compensation you could get can be invaluable in many ways. It can cover things like:
- Lost earnings and income
- Cost of care and assistance
- Prescription charges and medical fees
- Help with household chores
- Travel expenses
- Out of pocket expenses
- Special care aids and appliances
Our Medical Negligence Solicitors can also help you claim bereavement damages or fatal accident compensation if you lost a loved one because of medical negligence.
What is the Claims Process?
- When you contact us for a free assessment we’ll consider your case and let you know if we can help each other.
- We’ll include some key information such as the NHS Complaints procedure, as you may have to submit a complaint before taking legal action. If this applies to your case, we can advise you on the procedure and review the outcome of a complaint.
- We’ll work with at least one independent medical specialist to assess the full extent of your injuries, if your case proceeds. This will help us work out how much compensation you could get.
- We’ll take care of all the difficult tasks, including arranging medical appointments with independent experts to supporting you in Court if your case goes all the way to Trial.
- Wherever possible we’ll apply for an interim payment which can help with getting rehabilitation or other valuable help and support before your case is resolved.
- When your case is settled, we’ll arrange for your compensation to be paid directly to you. In cases of life changing injuries, we can set up a Personal Injury Trust to ensure a client receiving a large amount of compensation remains eligible for state benefits.
Time Limits for Medical Negligence Claims
You must make a claim within 3 years of the date the Medical Negligence happened or 3 years from the date you were aware you suffered from Medical Negligence. This is called the date of knowledge.
But the time limit can be extended in some cases if:
- The injured person suffers from a mental disability
- The Medical Negligence happened to someone under 18 years old. The 3-year period will start on their 18th birthday
If you’re claiming because someone died as a result of Medical Negligence, you have 3 years from the date of their death to make a claim.
What Will it Cost?
Medical Negligence claims can be funded through a No Win, No Fee agreement, also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement. Ask us for details and we’ll explain your options in detail.
