"The clinical negligence department of 'tremendous local firm’ Pinney Talfourd LLP is a real pleasure to deal with in every way and provides an exemplary service" - The Legal 500 UK 2017
Our medical negligence experts are all experienced solicitors who specialise in serious and complex negligence and injury claims. The department is recognised as one of the leading clinical negligence teams in Essex and London by The Legal 500 UK, an independent and definitive guide to the best law firms in the UK.
Being a patient under the care of a doctor, consultant or nurse is one of the few occasions where we unconditionally place our welfare and trust into the hands of another. Sometimes, however, mistakes are made. This could be as a result of a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, negligent surgery or aftercare, all of which can lead to extremely serious consequences. If a mistake is made, our medical negligence solicitors can help you obtain compensation to get you the help, support and long-term care or rehabilitation you may need. We know that money cannot bring back a loved one or always provide you with a full recovery, but financial assistance can give you the help that you may need going forward.
Our knowledgeable lawyers only undertake a select number of cases to ensure we provide a focused approach and proactive service to our clients. This enables our clients to obtain the very best medical care, rehabilitation and support available, as well as the maximum level of compensation so that our clients can move forward with their lives as quickly as possible.
Our clients come to us because of our solicitors’ reputation and expertise in this difficult area of law. We do not pay referral fees like some other firms.
We offer a free initial meeting to discuss your medical negligence claim, assess the merits of any action and to try and give you an indication of the compensation you may be entitled to and the likely duration of your case. We act for most of our clients on a no win no fee basis, or under a legal expenses insurance policy. We have disabled access to our Hornchurch, Brentwood and Upminster offices. If more convenient, we are happy to visit our clients at home or in hospital in Essex, London or further afield.
