Substandard and negligent medical care is unacceptable and although the majority of patients enjoy an adequate level of care, for those who do not the results can be traumatic, even catastrophic. As a full-service legal firm, George Ide is committed to ensuring the interests of the client in all aspects of our practice, and our specialist medical negligence solicitors are no exception.
At George Ide we strive to achieve justice for clients, whether they are engaged in litigation against an NHS defendant or a private care provider such as a cosmetic surgery clinic.
Our experienced team boasts some of the most experienced clinical negligence solicitors in the country – the department head is a member of two of the highest-profile medical negligence panels in England and Wales; AVMA (Actions for Victims of Medical Accidents) and the Law Society's Clinical Negligence Panel.
As one of Britain's leading personal injury firms we have forged a reputation for excellence in medical negligence litigation in several fields. This includes resolving claims for:
No two medical negligence claims are the same. For example, in the case of some claimants justice will entail an apology and admission of full liability from the defendant. In others, these may not be forthcoming and a settlement may only be accompanied by a "statement of regret".
However, in all cases we are committed to ensuring our clients receive the full amount of compensation that each of them deserves and our independent, healthcare-trained case managers are on hand to assess the needs of claimants should the need arise for interim care, treatment and/or rehabilitation before a claim is settled fully.
This means that, where appropriate, while we aim to eventually secure maximum sums for loss of earnings, loss of capacity, medical expenses and pain and trauma and our solicitors are able to negotiate the payment of funds as soon as possible for ongoing treatment and financial support.
There are few occasions in a person's life which will be as painful and distressing as those following an incident of negligent medical care. That is why we aim to look after our clients and their interests as much as possible during the litigation process.
Where a damages claim is successful, George Ide LLP can also offer in-house, lawyer-led investment advice to protect the most vulnerable victims of clinical negligence.
