What our Clinical Negligence & Healthcare Barristers offer

The Clinical Negligence and Healthcare barristers at Kings Chambers are leading practitioners recognised for their expertise in advocacy and advice in the most complex cases on a whole range of claims including:

  • Catastrophic birth injury
  • Delay in diagnosing cancer
  • Surgical, psychiatric, nursing and dental negligence
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Human rights claims arising in a healthcare setting

Issues surrounding clinical negligence and healthcare actions extend beyond civil litigation into associated areas such as:

  • Court of Protection
  • Health and Social Care

Some of our specialist barristers joined the Bar and Kings Chambers from medical or other healthcare backgrounds.

They have experience at all court levels and act for claimants and defendants. The team prides itself not only on its specialist knowledge but also on its client care, aiming to be accessible and to accommodate the needs of individual clients.

The team deals with treatment decision cases as well as data protection issues and defending CQC prosecutions.

Our barristers have specific expertise in the assessment of quantum in very high value cases and the use of periodical payments.

We act for both claimants as well as defendants including individual NHS Trusts, NHSLA, healthcare insurers, defence organisations (such as NHS Resolution), and other government bodies.
