Why instruct Kingsley Napley?

“I understood every aspect of my claim, and they handled everything with respect and compassion.  I felt grateful to be in the hands of such experienced, knowledgeable and understanding solicitors.” A clinical negligence client

Our highly experienced team of solicitors are committed to obtaining the best possible outcome for every client.
 

We frequently achieve substantial settlements for people who have been injured in an accident, suffered a worsened medical condition, or lost a loved one, as a result of negligence. 

Our clients include adults and children who have suffered catastrophic injuries.  We are experienced in tailoring compensation to provide individualised care and support over our clients’ lifetimes.  While nothing can undo the harm caused by negligence, financial compensation can be life-enhancing.  It can ensure that basic needs are met, provide opportunities to live life as fully as possible, and give the reassurance of long term financial security. 

We are members of specialist panels and organisations which represent injured people including the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA), Headway (the brain injury association) and Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA).

Our expertise is recognised by high rankings in the legal directories Legal 500 and Chambers UK.

Whatever your injury or medical condition, our ethos is to support you through the legal process to enable you to obtain the compensation you are entitled to.

We strongly believe in the principles of the NHS and the need for healthcare standards to be maintained; both within the NHS and in the private healthcare sector.  Together with colleagues in our Public Law team, we have represented patients’ organisations at the Public Inquiry into failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust.  We also continue to work with the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM) to demystify the law for medical professionals.

Our team approach

Every case is conducted by a personalised team including a specialist lawyer, led by a partner, and supported by more junior team members.   

We instruct leading experts and barristers in the UK, to maximise the likelihood that claims will succeed.

Where necessary, we are also able to call upon Kingsley Napley solicitors specialising in other fields including Court of Protection, real estate, regulatory proceedings, and employment law, to provide a complete service.

 

Getting results for clients

Our clients’ needs are at the forefront of everything we do. 

We employ careful strategies to fight cases hard, while also seeking to resolve them at an early stage, wherever possible.  Almost all cases are concluded without the need for a trial.   Some cases are even settled without starting Court proceedings .

Year on year we secure very substantial awards of compensation for our clients.  For the most serious injuries this has included settlements of well over £20 million.
