Medical Negligence Lawyer

Published: 14th June 2016

If you feel you have been a victim of medical negligence you may be tempted to try and make a claim yourself, without the aid of a solicitor. We can understand why, from the outside medical negligence claims seem quite black and white, and should in theory be a simple process. However that is far from the reality of the situation.

In reality you should, of course, always use a solicitor.

Clinical negligence is a complex area of law which is constantly developing and evolving. Therefore it is important to find a solicitor who specialises in medical negligence, and has many years of experience. It is also imperative that they have the correct accreditations, in order to prove they have the right abilities to represent you.

All the solicitors at Liddys, based in Barnsley, are members of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel. To be members of this panel you have to have been vetted for their experience and abilities. Another accreditation for solicitors undertaking Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence work is given by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). Members of APIL are required to adhere to a strict code of conduct, ensuring that they always provide an excellent service.

At Liddys Solicitors, all of our solicitors are accredited by APIL and Kevin Liddy is accredited as a Senior Litigator.

There are unfortunately a lot of inexperienced and incompetent injury lawyers in the UK. In order for you receive proper service, and to give yourself the best chance possible of making a successful claim it is important to make sure that they have the necessary qualifications.
