What is medical negligence?
Medical negligence happens when a medical professional fails to deliver the expected standard of care. This can happen at any time during the medical process; from an initial consultation with a GP to receiving ongoing treatment or undergoing surgery. Whatever the circumstances, if you have been let down or left suffering due to negligent care, you may be entitled to make a claim. As experts with over 25 years in medical negligence we will talk through your individual circumstances. Find out more about medical negligence here.

How much compensation could I claim against a Leeds hospital or GP?
Statistics show that upto £83 billion could be owed in medical negligence claims, with the NHS receiving upto 10,000 new claims each year. Every case is different and this means compensation can vary from a few thousand upto millions of pounds. It must be proven that medical negligence did occur and it was this negligence specifically that led to avoidable pain, injury or life-changing consequences. The amount of compensation you’re entitled to will vary according to the severity of your injuries.
At Patient Claim Line, our award-winning solicitors work to understand every detail of your case. If you have suffered medical negligence, will always aim to secure the right amount of compensation to help you move forward.

Head of Medical Negligence
Christian is Head of Medical Negligence at Patient Claim Line and has specialised in clinical negligence claims since qualifying in 1998; having dealt with a wide variety of claims throughout his career. He is also featured in the Legal 500 as a recommended claimant solicitor in the North West.
Christian qualified as a solicitor in 1998, specialising in clinical negligence. From 2010 onward he has had a particular interest in gynaecological and urogynaecological claims, having represented several hundred claimants in the George Rowland Litigation against the Liverpool Women’s and Aintree Hospitals. This investigated the treatment given to women in the Merseyside area over several decades, and in particular focused on the introduction and development of mesh into the UK in both the treatment of stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The development of this area involved pursuing claims under a unique ADR protocol with the NHS and also looking to develop the current thinking on the valuation of compensation for complex urinary symptoms. He has successfully recovered hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation on behalf of my clients.
Christian was also involved in setting up and chairing a Claimant Support Group for those involved in the Rowland litigation, which provided a discussion forum for the many women who were left isolated and damaged by negligent gynaecological treatment. He now co-ordinates the firm’s mesh claims and has delivered training and commented extensively on the medico-legal implications of urogynaecological / mesh complications. He is a member of APIL, Liverpool Law Society and Legal 500 recommended.Email me

"Now we have peace of mind"
My husband, Nick, went back and forth to the doctors for a long time and tried everything the doctor recommended. But his illness got worse, to the point that he was in agony.
In the end we got so desperate that we asked for a referral. The doctor was reluctant, so we had to consult a private hospital. That’s when we found out there was a tumour. It took years from the onset of his illness to finally start cancer treatment.
He used to be a man with a lot to live for, but in the end he was in so much pain that he withdrew from the family. He became angry that nobody had helped him sooner, and the legal team were able to give him the validation that he was desperately seeking. The NHS confirmed if they had done more, Nick would still be alive today.
