The Clinical Negligence department at Stewarts Law has an outstanding reputation for dealing with maximum severity clinical negligence claims. The team specialises in obtaining compensation for patients and their families who have suffered catastrophic or fatal injuries following negligent medical treatment. We have particular expertise in dealing with cases involving neurological injury including spinal cord injury, brain injury and birth injury.
We are highly ranked in both Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500, the two leading independent guides to the legal profession.
"Stewarts Law LLP is particularly noted for its expertise in high-value catastrophic injury claims, and enjoys an excellent reputation in clinical negligence work." (Legal 500 2015)
"They put in a lot of effort, they're not frightened to fight to trial and they go the extra mile. They run their cases hard and efficiently, they get good results and they are very adept at sniffing out the right experts. They have a very strong client focus." (Chambers & Partners 2015)
We provide an initial consultation and advice free of charge. Our lawyers are specialists: accredited by the Law Society, AvMA (Action against Medical Accidents), APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) and we hold a Legal Aid Agency contract as well as being Lexcel accredited. We are authorised to act by a wide range of legal insurers and specialise in undertaking work on Conditional Fee Agreements ("No win no fee").
We understand that the demands of those with serious injury are substantial and complex and for that reason our lawyers handle much smaller caseloads than the majority of clinical negligence lawyers thereby ensuring a proactive and client focused approach.
The quality and complexity of our work is demonstrated by the multi-million pound settlements we have obtained for our clients over the years.
