Do you have a Medical Negligence claim?
Medical negligence occurs when treatment that you receive from medically trained professional falls below a reasonable standard, causing you to suffer injury and loss. This could occur due to misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment or mistakes during surgery.
How can we help you?
We offer you an initial consultation free of charge, where we will take initial details of your case and form an initial view on whether there are good grounds for further investigation. If so, we will of course provide you with advice on the process going forwards.
These claims are very technical and time consuming, involving expert reports from different specialisms as well as detailed consideration of your medical notes. If liability is admitted we can claim an interim payment to help you with your rehabilitation.
How Long Do Medical Negligence Claims Take?
This will depend on the severity of your condition and whether liability is disputed. We can give you a better idea of timescales when we go through the initial details of your claim. Be aware that you generally have three years from the date you suffered the negligent treatment to make a claim although this time limit can be extended if you weren’t immediately aware of the negligence. Claims take time to formulate so don’t delay.
What fees will I need to pay?
We generally deal with these matters on a No Win No Fee basis. There will be a “success fee” payable upon the successful conclusion of the case which is deducted from your compensation but which will not exceed 25% of the settlement.
