A straightforward approach to a complicated situation
Although most clinical negligence claims involve hospital doctors, GP negligence claims are becoming much more common. There are a limited number of organisations who specialise in defending GPs against such claims. To protect your interests fully, you need a specialist firm on your side with real expertise such as Hart Brown.
GP claims can be particularly complicated if:
You are seen by a series of different GPs in relation to the same problem
There is a referral to one or more consultants or hospitals
The GPs, hospitals and consultants all end up blaming each other
Our dedicated team of expert medical negligence lawyers have a proven track record of getting to the bottom of who is responsible in these situations.
Cases we have handled successfully include winning over £6 million for the failure to diagnose and treat a subarachnoid haemorrhage.

Gerard qualified with a large regional firm in 1991. Since 1995 he has specialised exclusively on claimant personal injury work. More recently he has focused on complex higher value clinical negligence and personal injury claims.
His greatest success has been winning the high profile case of Delaney-v-The Secretary of State for Transport where after almost 9 years of litigation involving two Court of Appeal hearings and an application to the Supreme Court he was finally able to establish that the Motor Insurers’ Bureau Agreement was incompatible with EEC law. As a direct result of the decision in this case the agreement has had to be amended to the benefit of many future victims of uninsured drivers.
Gerard is a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel and he appears in the latest Legal 500 rankings in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence.
