The steps to your compensation:
Find out if you have a case
It costs nothing to contact us to see if you have a case. A call to our specialist team will guarantee you speak directly to a legal professional for a free, no-obligation assessment.
No win, no fee
We work the majority of our cases on a no-win, no fee basis. This means there is no financial risk to you – if you lose, you won’t be responsible for our fees. We’ll discuss the full range of funding options with you right at the beginning so that you won’t have any nasty surprises.
We’ll be able to tell whether we believe you are entitled to claim for compensation from our initial assessment. At this stage, if we think you have a claim, we’ll offer to take on the case on your behalf. Using experienced medical negligence specialists means you’re best placed to ensure the correct handling of your case, and you receive the compensation you deserve.
To assess the merits of your claim in full detail, we will need to access your medical records. This also allows us to see what additional evidence we will need to gather to prove your case. Our team can request your medical records for you.
Expert witnesses and evidence
We’ll be able to tell from your medical evidence if an expert witness or independent evidence from other medical professionals to support and strengthen your case. They’ll be able to provide details of the impact of the injury on your life and how the actions of your medical practitioner affected you and your health.
Where appropriate, we strive for a satisfactory resolution through negotiation. We’ll follow the claims process and send a letter to the medical professional or organisation to negotiate the best outcome for your case. If a settlement cannot be reached, your claim may go to trial. If this is the case, a judge will hear all evidence from both parties and will give a verdict and, if your claim is upheld, a compensation award.
