Clinical Negligence

I regularly instruct Temple Garden Chambers. I have total confidence in their ability to keep to deadlines, their organisation, their detailed analysis and excellent advocacy. The barristers have the support of a great team of clerks who are helpful and efficient

Chambers undertakes all areas of clinical negligence work on behalf of claimants and defendants, often in high value, complex cases. These include claims for delay and misdiagnosis, mismanagement, failure to refer, failure to convey to hospital, failure to obtain informed consent, surgical accidents, errors in treatment and dental malpractice.

Recent notable cases have involved brain and spinal injuries, serious gynaecological injuries arising out of failed hysterectomies, diagnostic failures (such as compartment syndrome, as well as cancer and MCL cases), bowel injuries (such as anastomotic leaks) arising out of surgical negligence and leading to permanent bowel dysfunction and/or need for stomas, birth injuries, negligent shoulder surgery leading to permanent shoulder impingement, mental health and cosmetic surgery.

Practitioners also have a wealth of experience of disciplinary proceedings involving doctors and other health professionals.
