Fatality Claims

Every year millions of people put their trust in health professionals and, in the vast majority of cases, receive high-quality medical treatment and care.

However this isn’t the case for everyone. Unfortunately many families across the UK are left grieving the loss of a loved one as a result of failures or mistakes made by medical staff.

These fatal mistakes can take the form of a misdiagnosis, a prescription error or a surgical error, and often leave families with a sense of injustice and at a loss as to who to turn to for help.
