How do I know I have a medical negligence claim?
You will usually have a medical negligence claim if the treatment or care you received has resulted in an injury, or that any condition you already had was made worse due to that treatment.
You will usually need to bring a claim within three years of the alleged negligent treatment, or from the date at which you became aware it was negligent. There are exceptions to this, including for children who have until their 21st birthday to bring a claim, or adults with brain injuries who have no time limit on claims.
You can find out more about how we identify negligence and make a claim in our medical negligence guide.
How much compensation might I receive for a claim?
This will depend entirely on your particular circumstances. We will therefore need to speak with you first in order to assess the value of your claim.
How can I pay for the legal costs?
Often medical negligence claims will proceed with a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), otherwise known as ‘No Win No Fee’ funding. This ensures that – should your case be unsuccessful – you will have nothing to pay.
We can also help with Legal Aid funding for particular cases involving children.
How long will a claim take?
This depends on a number of factors, for example if the person or organisation you are claiming against denies there was a fault. However it can take years to reach a settlement in some cases.
