Dear *****

I would approach a local solicitor's firm that specialises in personal injury claims as medical negligence is a species of personal injury law.

If you look in your local newspapers you will hopefully find a solicitors offering personal injury claims on a no win no fee basis so your wife's claim can be assessed properly at no cost to you. Medical negligence claims are complex and it can take a lot of work just to be able to assess the issue of liability and doing it this way enables the solicitors to do that at no cost to you.

I hope this helps. If there are any further points please reply I will be happy to respond.

Kindly rate my answer before leaving the system so I get credit for my time.

Best wishes
