At Shepherd Harris & Co we pride ourselves on being understanding, compassionate and great listeners.

You may have been either misdiagnosed or had an operation that has gone wrong or perhaps you feel that a doctor may not have provided you with the right treatment or care. Negligence at the hands of those we entrust our care can be disabling and catastrophic. In such event you may be entitled to compensation under clinical negligence law.

If you believe you have not received the appropriate care and have suffered an injury (be it physical or mental), you may have a claim.  This could involve, as referred to above, a misdiagnosis, a badly performed operation or indeed a failure to treat a condition quickly (e.g. cancer or a baby in distress). In some cases the consequences can be catastrophic and lead to permanent and disabling injuries and in those circumstances we liaise with the NHS litigation authority (or their legal advisers) with a view to ensuring that a care package (and financial support) is put in place. This relieves the stresses of any family members and may make the life of any injured person less difficult.


Clinical negligence is a complex area of law and at Shepherd Harris & Co we have the necessary skills and support to ensure that any claim is properly handled and any damages maximised.
