Stewarts Law LLP's 'simply excellent' clinical negligence team is a 'strong outfit' with 'some excellent individuals' who are 'innovative, dedicated and successful'. The firm focuses exclusively on catastrophic cases - Legal 500, 2011
The Clinical Negligence Department at Stewarts Law combines expert knowledge of medical treatment issues with expertise in neurological injury, particularly spinal injury, brain injury and cerebral palsy. The department has considerable experience in cases of paralysis or head injury caused by negligent surgery, the failure to diagnose a medical condition, or the failure to obtain informed patient consent, and accidents with anaesthesia. The department is highly ranked by both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, the two leading independent guides to the legal profession.
We provide a consultation and initial advice entirely free of charge. We hold a Legal Services Commission Franchise in both clinical negligence and multi-party actions and the department is recognised by the Legal Services Commission and other funding organisations, including legal expenses insurers, as a leading clinical negligence practice. We offer conditional fee - "no win no fee" agreements - for clinical negligence work.
Our lawyers handle smaller caseloads than the majority of clinical negligence lawyers which enables them to adopt 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 past year.
