It is imperative that the most vulnerable in our society are protected whether that vulnerability is long-term or short-lived. We believe that mental health sufferers deserve the same high standards of treatment as all other members of our society. Where there has been a failing to provide adequate mental health care, or errors in that care, then there may be a case for Medical Negligence. For there to have been Medical Negligence we need to prove that the patient suffered injury or death (including suicide) under the care of Mental Health providers. This may include: misdiagnosis of a mental health condition, mental health injuries and illnesses during hospital stays, inadequate care, a failure to detain when necessary or wrongly discharging a patient.
We understand that often the nature of a mental health illness means the patient is often unable to undertake a medical negligence claim themselves, and we can work with loved ones to help bring a claim on the patient’s behalf. We work sensitively and in an approachable manner to undertake Medical Negligence claims that are the result of failings in the mental health services.

Independent reviews from our CLIENTS
I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
I contacted Attwood Solicitors requesting that they represent me. Their response to date has been way beyond my expectations . They have provided a comprehensive and professional service at every stage, with a dedicated member of staff as my contact.
All my queries and issues have been resolved very efficiently and you have always contacted me back when promised. I have certainty felt you have been acting on my behalf and would like to thank you for that. Once again we would like to convey our sincere thanks to you and would have no reservations recommending you to anyone else – you have been a star
