Common NHS Claims

Unfortunately problems can arise with the provision of health care - not all treatment has the desired result.

This is why BHP Law have specialist solicitors who are extremely experienced in dealing with medical negligence claims.

Many of us wonder if we even have a claim for clinical negligence, and while there are some common claims within NHS services, there are also some extremely unique and specialist cases that come to us here at BHP Law.

We have dealt with a wide range of medical negligence claims, many of the utmost severity. We are committed to maximising the medical negligence compensation due to you.

We aim to make the medical negligence compensation process as simple as possible, by explaining everything in plain English to guide you through each step of the process. If you have a strong medical negligence claim, BHP Law will ensure that you can pursue it without financial risk to you.

Approaching a medical negligence solicitor to ask advice about pursuing a claim against a doctor or hospital can be difficult and we understand this. That is why we are committed to providing a sympathetic and understanding service which will recognise your needs. On top of that, most of our medical negligence cases settle without clients having to go to Court.
