Clinical Negligence

“Compass Chambers’ position as one of Scotland’s leading sets for clinical negligence is ensured by the depth of its members’ expertise in the full range of medical disputes” – Chambers UK

We are proud to be recognised as one of Scotland's leading stables for clinical negligence. Our members act for both pursuers and defenders in respect of claims against health boards, private hospitals and individual clinicians. Our advocates have extensive experience in all types of claims, including dental treatment, delayed diagnosis and high value brain injury cases. We have been involved in some of Scotland’s most high profile and complex cases.

Compass is ranked Band 1 as a stable for Clinical Negligence by Chambers UK and has been every year since they started coverage of this area in Scotland. In addition, many of our senior and junior advocates are individually ranked in this area by Chambers UK and the Legal 500. We are regularly called upon to speak at conferences on medical law topics.

This year we have been highly praised again by our clients. According to Chambers UK 2016: “Compass Chambers' position as one of Scotland's leading sets for clinical negligence is ensured by the depth of its members' expertise in the full range of medical disputes. It boasts a highly experienced stable of advocates who act for pursuers and defenders including hospitals, individual doctors and the NHS in many of Scotland's most notable cases.”
