    Medical Negligence Solicitors in Stoke-on-Trent

    If we become seriously ill or require specialist care, we look to medical professionals who can offer treatment or surgery to ease our pain or prevent our suffering. However, this doesn’t always happen and we can be left with severe injuries or the worsening of our condition. Medical negligence is categorised as a substandard quality of care by a medical professional which can arise through a misdiagnosis, mistakes during surgery or an incorrect diagnosis.

    Our experts at Step Legal can provide you with support for medical malpractice in Stoke-on-Trent and an experienced medical negligence solicitor can attend to all legal formalities. Should you lose your claim, we offer a no win, no fee arrangement, meaning you won’t be charged.

    You can speak to our experienced team today to start your claim. Please submit a ‘Request a Callback’ form and a member of our team will be in touch when it suits you best. Alternatively, you can contact our team on 0800 195 6412 or email us at or visit us at our office.

    Our Medical Negligence Services

    NHS Hospital Negligence

    We rely heavily on the NHS to provide us with high-quality healthcare and in most cases, this is what is provided. In some cases, this may fall below the standard – as a result, patients can be hurt, or in more serious circumstances, it can cause death. Our experts can help support the victims of medical malpractice in Stoke-on-Trent and help hold those responsible, accountable. 

    Some examples of claims we specialise in include:

    • Failure to diagnose serious conditions, such as cancer.
    • Delayed diagnosis or treatment.
    • Mistakes made with prescriptions, which resulted in you taking the wrong dosage or drug.
    • Failure to find fractures, tears or other orthopaedic injuries.
    • Surgical errors.

    There are many other claims that can be made in the form of medical negligence so if you’d like to find out more, visit our NHS Hospital Negligence Claim page.

    Private Hospital Negligence

    Some patients prefer to seek private medical care, rather than be seen through the NHS. Some reasons patients may choose this route include shorter waiting times, quicker diagnosis and treatment and high-quality care. For some patients, however, private healthcare may have left them in a worse condition than when they were first seen. 

    Similarly to NHS hospital negligence, some of the claims our solicitors can represent you for include:

    • Delayed or misdiagnosis.
    • Neglectful personal care.
    • Surgical errors.
    • Incorrect prescription of medication.

    For private medical negligence, we also cater to a variety of claims against, practitioners, doctors and hospitals throughout various departments, including:

    • Cosmetic surgery negligence.
    • Cardiology negligence.
    • Oncology negligence.
    • Orthopaedics negligence. 
    • Plus many more.

    There are many other claims that can be made in the form of medical negligence so if you’d like to find out more, visit our Private Hospital Negligence Claim page.

    GP Negligence

    If you are feeling unwell or have a problem that needs to be looked over by a medical professional, you may consider an appointment with your General Practitioner (GP). They generally cater to minor conditions but may refer you to a specialist if necessary. On most occasions, we trust our family doctor to provide us with the best care, but on some occasions, a mistake could cost you your health if you develop a serious or life-threatening illness or if it leads to your death.

    Some of the claims our solicitors can represent you for include:

    • Failing to properly diagnose. 
    • Failing to test appropriately.
    • Failing to prescribe the right medication.
    • Failing to refer you to a specialist.
    • Failing to call you in for a review that is a medical necessity.

    There are many other claims that can be made in the form of medical negligence so if you’d like to find out more, visit our GP Negligence Claim page.

    Dental Negligence

    As a dental patient, whether you’re with the NHS or have seeked private dental care, you expect a certain quality of service, particularly if there is something medically that you want to discuss. It is imperative that any issues with dental health are made known and treated immediately, to prevent long-term health issues. Unfortunately, some patients may not be tended to with the best care and that’s where we step in to support you and help you make a claim.

    Some of the dental negligence claims you can make include:

    • Failure to diagnose and treat gum disease.
    • Failure to diagnose oral cancer or refer you to a specialist.
    • Mistakes made during a surgical procedure. 
    • Misdiagnosis of an oral health condition.
    • Mistakes made during orthodontic treatment.

    There are many other claims that can be made in the form of Dental Negligence so if you’d like to find out more, visit our Dental Negligence Claim page.

    Medical Negligence Resulting in Death

    Whilst losing a loved one is a tough time for everyone involved, it can be even harder for those who have lost their loved one through medical negligence. It is essential that those responsible are held accountable for causing the death. 

    Some of the medical negligence claims you can make include:

    • Errors with the prescription whether it was through the NHS or private pharmacists.
    • Surgery or medical treatment that has been incorrectly performed by NHS or private staff.
    • Negligence and lack of care by various medical professionals, including radiologists, cardiologists or dentists.

    There are other claims that can be made in the form of Medical Negligence That Resulted in Death so if you’d like to find out more, visit our Medical Negligence Death Claim page.
