Why use the Metcalfes Team?

If you or a loved one has been a victim of medical negligence, we understand that you need to be sure you have the best possible person representing you and your family.

At Metcalfes we fight hard to bring justice for victims of medical accidents.

We understand that if you have been a victim of medical negligence you may not be only concerned with compensation, but may also want to know what changes are being put in place to ensure the same thing does not happen to anyone else, or that you may just want the hospital or doctor involved to say they are sorry.

Holistic approach 

We take a holistic approach to claims and work closely with our clients to find out not only what events have taken place, but what our clients want to achieve by instructing us.

Our medical negligence solicitors also recognise that great legal support isn't just knowing the law inside out.  When you instruct us, you will get a solicitor who: 

  • Understands the clinical context and the processes and procedures that should be followed by doctors, nurses and other health professionals.
  • A solicitor who is compassionate and will work tirelessly to understand you and your situation and try to achieve the best outcome for you.
  • Providing clear communication and the best legal and practical solutions in as quick and simple way as possible.

Our professional associations

Our legal and medical expertise is recognised by our affiliation to various regulatory and industry-specific organisations. Metcalfes is a member of the following professional associations:

The firm also holds a Legal Services Commission Clinical Negligence Franchise to offer Legal Aid funding to clients.
