Clinical negligence claims have rose sharply during the last two years with the NHS spent more than £800m settling legal claims in 2009 as complaints of medical negligence against the service rose sharply. This represented a 22% increase on claims from 2008 and as such there has been a significant increase in demand for those with specialist experience within this field.

Particularly during the last couple of years, there have been an increasing number of new specialist clinical negligence firms and departments emerging to add to a number of established practices, creating a competitive and buoyant market for candidates within the sector.
