Practice areas

I specialise in clinical and dental negligence claims, I help people who have claims due to :

•   birth injury and cerebral palsy,
•   delayed diagnosis,
•   prescription errors,
•   sub standard treatment or surgery


I started working in the law in the early 1980’s and qualified as a Legal Executive during this period.  For the majority of my career, I have specialised in medical negligence cases although I have also dealt with some Equestrian and Veterinary cases.

I have dealt with a wide range of matters, ranging from catastrophic injuries to relatively minor injuries involving the loss of  teeth.  This includes claims arising from orthodontic, geriatric and orthopaedic care. I have also supported families at Inquests where allegations of negligence are involved.
I am dedicated to providing top quality client care and support and believe strongly in continuity and openness.  I endeavour to settle claims as promptly, efficiently and cost effectively as possible, whilst keeping the client fully updated and involved at all stages.

Who are my clients?

I work for anyone with a medical negligence claim against individual doctors or nurses in private practice, the NHS Trusts, GP Surgeries, GP’s, Dentists and Opticians. Examples of my clients and settlements include:

£7.5 million structured settlement for young girl who suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of hypoxia at birth;
£4.5 million structed settlement for young boy born with cerebral palsy as a result of his mother contracting chicken pox at early stage in pregnancy and who was not immunised.
£1 million+ structured settlement for young man who sustained brain damage as a result of suffering aspiration pneumonia following surgery.
£650,000 for family whose partner and mother died in childbirth.
£96,000 for wife of man who died as a result of failure to diagnose and treat dissecting aortic aneurism.
£4,000 for man following prescription error.
£15,000 for teenager in relation to the negligent removal of incisor tooth.

A recent client said they valued Chris Moffat’s “determination, patience and diligience”
