Clinical negligence claims are very complex and difficult cases. Because of this they should be run by specialist solicitors who have experience in this type of claim.

Following recent changes to the law surrounding road traffic accidents, there are concerns that firms doing RTA work will now be focussing on clinical negligence claims as an additional source of revenue.

According to recent data the number of practitioners who have expressed an interest in dealing with medical negligence cases has risen tenfold since the start of 2013.  For me this is a worrying statistic.

Whilst the changes to the market make it tempting for personal injury lawyers to diversify into clinical negligence work, a concern shared by many is that they will not have the specialist knowledge required, nor the investment required.

Clients should always be aware of the experience and qualifications of the solicitor handling their case. To support this, there has been calls for the introduction of a new quality mark to verify that clients are working with a specialist firm.
