When you are ill or in hospital waiting for treatment, it can be a very stressful time. We go to the doctors and other medical professionals in the hope that they will be able to cure us and alleviate our suffering. Luckily, most of the time this is exactly what happens.
Unfortunately though, medical professionals sometimes miss the cause of an illness or treat it incorrectly, causing the situation to get worse.
If you have received negligent medical treatment, been mis-diagnosed or not treated appropriately, then we can help you.
