Dominic Graham

Dominic is a specialist medical negligence solicitor experienced in settling complex claims involving multi-million pound settlements.

Dominic has earned a reputation as a clinical negligence specialist with particular expertise in dealing with the most complex of medical negligence cases.  Due to his wealth of experience, Dominic is often involved in advising clients that have suffered signficiant life-changing, or life-limiting, injuries or illness. In the most serious of cases, Dominic advises families who have lost a loved-one as a result of poor medical care and negligence. Such cases include surgical error claims, misdiagnosis claims, spinal injury claims, birth injury claims and brain injury claims.

Dominic advises and represents clients across the country. He prides himself on building the strongest possible claim on behalf of his clients, not only so that their claim is successful, but so they achieve the maximum amount of compensation possible.

Dominic provides advice and representation in relation to compensation claims on a no win, no fee basis. This means his clients do not face any financial risk when they seek his legal advice and services.

To build the strongest possible claim for compensation on behalf of his clients, Dominic will source leading medical experts to provide expert opinion on the injuries his clients have sustained. He will also seek expert opinion from medical experts on the care his clients have received, where it is argued poor care has been provided.

When valuing a claim for compensation and negotiating a settlement with defendants, Dominic always seeks to include in clients’ claim amounts, compensation to cover loss of earnings where his clients have had time off work. In many cases Dominic advises on, his clients  may have to take a lower paid job than they had previously, or are unable to return to work at all, due to their injuries or illness. In such cases, compensation settlements can be significant.

Where Dominic’s clients have suffered life changing injuries or illness and they require care to help them with daily life, Dominic ensures that compensation settlements provide the client with enough money to pay for the care they need for the remainder of their life time.

More than securing compensation for his clients to cover pain and suffering, Dominic takes pride in securing their long-term financial security and in giving them the piece of mind that the specialist care they need can be afforded both now and in the future. It is these latter aspects that are the most important for those severely injured and ill clients he advises.
