A legal expert from medical negligence specialists Morrish Solicitors has been recognised as one of the country’s leading figures in supporting victims of serious clinical negligence, handling some of the most complex, high-value cases.

Duncan Gardiner, who is based at the firm’s Bradford office, has been selected onto The Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel, for which only solicitors who can demonstrate extensive knowledge, skills and experience in dealing with high-value and complicated injury cases are selected.

Solicitors have to go through a rigorous assessment process in which cases they have handled are considered and reviewed. Only firms with representatives on the panel are able to obtain legal aid which is required to conduct such high-value claims on behalf of their clients.

Mr Gardiner is Head of clinical negligence at Morrish Solicitors who support hundreds of people a year in bringing compensation claims for medical negligence.

Mr Gardiner said: “I am extremely proud to be accepted onto the Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel. The scheme recognises solicitors for their high level of knowledge, skills, experience and practice in the area of clinical negligence. This type of accreditation and panel membership for clinical negligence solicitors is designed to provide clients, who are the victims of clinical negligence, with the assurance that they are working with a legal representative who is accomplished and experienced in this highly specialised area of the law.

The focus at Morrish Solicitors is always on securing not just high-value settlements, but compensation settlements which truly help victims of clinical negligence and personal injury rebuild their lives and make the best possible recovery.

In many cases which we handle, including serious brain injuries and many other life-changing injuries, our role is to ensure our legal expertise provides our clients with the best support they can possibly have to adapt their lives and live as comfortably as possible. This means we put rehabilitation and a care package at the heart of our claims to ensure relevant support is provided to help the client and their family rebuild their lives, in some cases for the rest of their lives.”

Morrish’s clinical negligence team also includes Associates Jane McBennett and Anna Sari, along with solicitors Oonagh McCurry and legal executive Amrina Kauser. The team has knowledge, skills and experience in handling all types of medical negligence claims.
