Paul McNeil, Partner, Medical Negligence

Paul McNeil, Partner, Medical Negligence, Fieldfisher
I have more than 25 years experience acting for those injured through medical negligence or personal injury accidents.

My claims cover many areas, including:

  • Medical Negligence claims  
  • Personal Injury claims  
  • Work Accident claims 
  • Road Traffic Accidents claims  
  • International personal injury claims
Many of my cases involve serious head injuries or birth injuries and have settled for over £1 million. This ensures that my clients receive adequate compensation to pay for education, rehabilitation, care and treatment.

Recent cases include:

I regularly speak at conferences and events including RoadPeace and BISWG (Brain Injury Social Work Group) conferences. I also contributed a chapter to the well-received “Experts in the Civil Courts” edited by Sir Louis Blom Cooper QC.

I am a member of AvMA (Action against Medical Accidents), the Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, APIL, and a Fellow of the Society for Advanced Legal Studies.

The legal directories recommend me as one of their star individuals. Chambers 2013 says:

Paul McNeil, is a "stellar individual" who is regarded as "one of the first lawyers you would go to for a complex maximum-severity clinical negligence claim, or would recommend to a family member." They state that Paul has an excellent relationship with his clients and is "compassionate, but at all times 110% professional".
Chambers UK 2015 says I am regarded as "an exceptionally safe pair of hands"
