Neurology and Neurosurgery concern the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord and nerves.
A misdiagnosis may have led you to having an unnecessary neurological procedure or surgery, or to the exacerbation of a disability. You may have suffered permanent injuries as a result of medical negligence in the procedure or surgery.
We are experienced in dealing with all types of neurological and neurosurgical claims as a result of negligence, including surgical errors or failure to diagnose and treat various neurological conditions. In particular, we have dealt with claims arising from:
Brain tumours and infections

Frequently asked questions
How will I cover legal costs; especially if I lose my case?
In the vast majority of our cases, we deal on a no win no fee basis. This is also known as a conditional fee agreement (CFA). A no win no fee arrangement means that, if you do not win, you do not have to pay any fees. If you do win, we will take a percentage of your damages as our success fee. This will usually be between 15% and 25% depending on the merits and value of your claim.
Is there a time limit for bringing a compensation claim?
Yes, there is. In general, the time limit is 3 years from the date of the negligent treatment. If you were initially unaware that there was negligence at play, the 3 year time limit will apply from the date you first became aware that you suffered a significant injury and that injury was due to the defendant’s negligence. In practice, this means a claim form must be issued at Court to commence proceedings within 3 years of the negligent act or knowledge of the negligence.
