The need for specialist advice
Contrary to claims companies advertising, getting Medical Negligence Compensation is not easy. Medical Negligence is a highly specialist area of law. It is essential that you have a specialist and accredited Medical Negligence Solicitor who will listen to you and clearly explain both how your claim is progressing . If you have suffered an injury due to Medical Negligence, sadly you are not alone. Remarkably there are approximately 850,000 Medical Accidents in UK hospitals annually, half of which were avoidable.
Our Solicitors understand how traumatic a Medical Accident is for you and your family, when after trusting medical professionals, you end up a victim of clinical negligence. Whilst no money can ever fully compensate Medical Negligence victims, we believe bringing these claims forward helps improve medical standards and raise patient awareness. Our Solicitors will do their utmost to ensure you receive fair compensation.
Funding for Medical Negligence Claims
We are one of only around 120 Solicitors firms holding a Legal Services Commission (legal aid) franchise for Medical Negligence Claims- so if you receive a low income or benefits, we are one of few law firms approved to bring your Medical Compensation Claim. Our solicitors can tell you if you qualify for legal aid.
Our Solicitors also conduct Medical Claims on ‘No Win No Fee’ agreements – read more about “No Win No Fee Claims“.
Thinking of Making a Claim Following a Medical Error? Don’t Delay
It’s important to get legal advice from our solicitors as soon as possible after you become aware of any injury – time limitation periods apply and it is often easier investigating your Medical Negligence Compensation Claim if you take early legal advice. Your first interview with us is FREE, and our Solicitors can then tell you whether your compensation claim is worth pursuing. We recommend you make notes about the circumstances of your Medical Injury and keep a diary of events.
Home/hospital visits are available for clients with severe injuries. Our medical solicitors can see you in our Salisbury, Andover or Amesbury offices and we have interviewing facilities in West Dorset.
