Medical Negligence

What is Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence or malpractice, is when an individual or organisation fails to provide care at an acceptable standard. The consequences are often serious, including permanent damage, psychological trauma or even death.

At S.T.O’Sullivan & Co we have a dedicated team of medical negligence solicitors with over 35 years experience in helping victims of medical accidents.

We provide advice in relation to injury or loss suffered as a result of any type of treatment by doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.

Specialist areas:

•    Birth injury claims 

•    Cerebral palsy claims

•    Brain damage/injury

•    Misdiagnosis

•    Delay in diagnosis

•    Dental negligence

•    Surgical accidents

•    Cosmetic surgery claims

•    Hospital infection claims

•    Claims against care homes

•    Claims against medical professionals including dentists, opticians, physiotherapists


As experienced medical negligence solicitors, we know the law and the process inside out but we are also acutely aware of the emotional burden on you and the support you need from us.

We understand that choosing to start a medical negligence case is not easy. People who have suffered such injuries are often slow to bring a claim for compensation because they are intimidated by the prospect of taking hospitals and doctors to court and because of the perceived financial risks involved.

We know that every medical negligence case is different so our team takes time to get to know you, to understand the effects of the injuries you have suffered and to support you every step of the way.

Our solicitors have helped thousands of clients to claim compensation and this experience means we can give you the support, understanding and advice you need at this difficult time.
