    Healys is one of the leading providers of legal advice and representation for medical negligence in Brighton and the surrounding areas. Our partners, in excess of 50 years experience, deal with all medical negligence claims from day one.

    We have extensive experience in the area of law concerning medical negligence, claims against the NHS and claims against GPs. We also deal with cancer misdiagnosis claims, late diagnosis claims, as well as areas such as misinterpretation of test results and claims relating to surgery that has gone wrong. Healys prides itself not only on its first class legal knowledge and expertise, but also on our client care and attention to detail. Unlike many larger firms, Healys ensures that your first point of contact right from the beginning is a senior solicitor within the firm, meaning that you can be confident from the outset that your case is being dealt with by an experienced and specialist medical negligence professional.

    Expert Medical Negligence Solicitors

    We take great pride in our personal yet professional approach to each and every legal case we deal with. We understand that very often, you have suffered both physical and emotional trauma as a result of the negligence of a medical professional, in any number of different situations. Healys also understands that many people are not only seeking compensation for the difficulties and trauma caused by medical negligence, but also that they are seeking answers.

    We support our clients throughout medical negligence claims from the beginning, and not only seek redress through financial compensation, but always try to find out exactly what went wrong and why. This is important to many of our clients, because it helps them to understand better what caused the negligence of which they find themselves a victim.

    Medical negligence is often a complex and time consuming area of law. In some cases, depending upon complexity and severity, it can take years of legal proceedings to resolve them.

    This means that it is important, when choosing a medical negligence solicitor, to ensure that you choose a firm that not only has the relevant legal knowledge and expertise, but is also committed to representing your interests as a whole, and finding out exactly what went wrong, and why.

    With our collective experience and professional knowledge, Healys can provide this. We operate a very client centred approach, meaning that not only do we make an effort to get to know the legal ins and outs of your medical negligence case, but we also get to know you as an individual.

    Dear Jonathan… I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for all your hard work and support in negotiating a settlement.  This has not been an easy case and with your expertise, compassion and patience you have finally brought my case to a satisfactory conclusion.  I can now go ahead with restorative work to my teeth and with ongoing support I can now look forward to a happier future.

    MEDICAL & CLINICAL NEGLIGENCE experiences
    • Jonathan was able to help the husband of a 50 year old woman claim compensation after the hospital failed to diagnose her cancer. Mrs L attended hospital complaining of pain in her abdomen. She was discharged without further tests but unfortunately she died of thyroid cancer a few months later. Jonathan argued that the chance for a liver biopsy was missed during her visit to hospital and although this would not affect the unfortunate outcome, palliative care could have been arranged to ease Mrs L’s suffering. Jonathan was able to secure Mrs L’s husband a five figure sum in compensation.
    • Jonathan has also helped the family of a 71 year old man claim compensation after a complication in his surgery caused his death. Mr R was suffering from chest pains and was admitted to hospital for tests. He was found to have an issue with his heart and doctors attempted to rectify this with a surgical procedure. Unfortunately during this procedure an air pocket had got into one of his blood vessels which caused Mr R’s death. With expert medical evidence Jonathan was able to secure Mr R’s family £75,000 in compensation.
    • Jonathan helped X get further compensation and access to services to aid in his rehabilitation. X was a subject of sexual abuse from his step father between the ages of 5 and 7. Initial application for compensation was made in 1990 and X was awarded £10,000. After several attempts at his own life, X decided to contact Jonathan to seek further compensation. Jonathan was able to secure X £200,000 in compensation and an overall award of £1,200,000 inclusive of state benefits. More importantly Jonathan then arranged the Special Needs Trust to support X’s rehabilitation.
    • Jonathan helped the parents of Baby B claim compensation after a failure in care during labour resulted in Baby B’s death. Initially the Trust denied they were responsible for Baby B’s death but after negotiations the Trust admitted responsibility and Jonathan was able to negotiate an out of court settlement for Baby B’s parents.
