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.
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.
Ultimately, this means we are better placed to serve you well, as we gain an understanding of the effect the medical negligence has had on you and your life as a whole, but also exactly what you are looking for as an outcome of and resolution to your medical negligence claim.
