Our no win, no fee policy

No win no fee agreements offer valuable benefits to individuals pursuing medical negligence claims by reducing the financial risks associated with legal proceedings. This arrangement has a significant advantage: it eliminates upfront legal fees and lowers potential costs in unsuccessful cases.

By alleviating this burden, those who may lack the means to afford a solicitor can now access quality representation for their claims. This ensures greater opportunities in seeking compensation for harm caused by medical negligence.

Furthermore, any costs awarded to successful claimants are borne by the defendant, ensuring that individuals who have suffered loss and trauma are not further disadvantaged. No win no fee agreements thus facilitate a more accessible and equitable path to pursuing justice in medical negligence cases for everyone.

  • The severity of your injuries or illness caused by the negligence.
  • Reasonable expenses incurred as a result of the negligent treatment.
  • Current and future income loss.
  • Any home or car adaptations required.

Your clinical negligence solicitor will take all of the above into consideration when quantifying your claim.

Clinical negligence compensation pay-outs can range significantly, with amounts spanning from a few thousand pounds to several million. Due to the uniqueness of each claim, it is challenging to determine the precise settlement you may receive.
