General information on medical negligence


Medical negligence is a complex area of law. Understanding what does and does not constitute medical negligence is a large part of knowing whether you might have a claim. We have set out the general principles of medical negligence.

We have also set out what the alternatives might be, such as making a complaint about your medical professional for behaviour that falls below medical negligence. We have also set out some information about the funding options that might be available to you, such as receiving legal assistance on a no-win, no-fee basis.
