Medical Negligence Solicitors

Medical Negligence Solicitors based in Sheffield, Rotherham, and Barnsley

Medical negligence complaints are almost always painful, distressing, disruptive and traumatic. Often, such events are life-changing, even occasionally fatal. Whilst professional legal advice can never turn back the clock, it can help you and your family rebuild for the time ahead.

How our Medical Negligence Solicitors Can Help

If you feel that you may have a claim for medical negligence compensation, whether it is connected to treatment received from your local doctor or dentist, from an NHS hospital or private health company, then get in touch today.


We know the many people are hesitant about contacting a solicitor but we’re just regular people with a particular expertise – and we’re on your side. Besides, an initial call costs nothing and our medical negligence team will listen sympathetically before advising on your options and recommended next steps.

We will consider on the merits of every claim brought to us, and regardless of its size, complexity or impact, we’ll give each one the same care and attention. We are equally comfortable advising on the smallest viable claims to handling multi-million pound cases where catastrophic injury has resulted. Please don’t think that what’s happened to you is too trivial to matter – we’ll listen even if others won’t.


If you have a claim that we can pursue, our expert team will do all they can to help to establish adequate ‘provision for life’ in terms of ongoing specialist care, housing, support and welfare and where possible earn the maximum possible medical negligence compensation settlement for clients.

Contact us or call us on 0114 2496666 to book your appointment today.


NHS Neglect Claims

We have helped many people who have claimed against the NHS. NHS neglect happens if the people treating you have failed to fulfil their duty of care, and haven’t followed certain regulations such as the NHS Constitution. This can include wrong or inadequate care, treatment, or diagnosis.

The Medical Negligence Team

Our medical negligence team headed up by the highly rated Michelle Gyte, is a specialist practice group driven hard by their belief that everyone is entitled to access to justice.


Professionally, this is a group of highly skilled, very diligent medical negligence lawyers who scrutinise every aspect of a claim, and represent their clients tirelessly. Very simply, they want to give people the best possible chance of continuing their lives with the requisite financial and medical support.


Personally, they are down to earth, friendly and approachable people whom you can talk to and confide in. They’ve seen most things and understand how these traumatic incidents can devastate lives, gauging the true cost of the physical, psychological and emotional damage sustained. They will listen and encourage and then use their technical skills to translate everything that they’ve heard and felt into positive action for you.

Medical Negligence Articles

What Do Our
Clients Say?

“I can honestly not thank Amy and her team enough for everything they did to help with my 10 month old daughters inquest. I was absolutely terrified going into this as I had no previous knowledge on inquests. Amy reassured me from the start and kept me fully updated on what was going on. She helped explain everything in a way that we could understand. Losing my daughter then having to go through an inquest is the worst thing that’s ever happened in my life but I couldn’t of asked for someone better to help us get the answers we needed, Amy and Rubina are the most lovely ladies, they kept me calm and reassured the full way through. They are so professional with a personal touch. I cannot thank there team enough for what they have done for myself, my family and more importantly Lily my daughter.”
