Do I have a valid claim?
First things first — we need to establish whether you have a valid claim and whether it’s win-able. Medical negligence is a thorny issue, so it’s important to establish whether actual negligence has occurred, or if your situation is more of a reason for a complaint. This is why the initial consultation period is so very important, and why contacting us is the best choice as you’ll talk to an actual Solicitor from the very start. We will listen carefully and sensitively to the details of your case. We realise that when clients contact us they are often going through a very stressful time. So we treat each case on an individual basis. We can even arrange hospital, work or home visits if necessary.
As we listen to the details of your experience we will be trying to establish 2 things:
- Firstly — was your Doctor, Nurse or medical team at fault to the extent that they did not provide a level of service and care equal to what would be expected of another professional in their field.
- And secondly — did you suffer actual harm, injury or loss as a direct result of this lack of care.
If both of the above conditions are satisfied then you may well have a grounds for a criminal negligence claim. During this process we will also advise you of things such as statutory Limitation — the time after the incident in which a medical negligence claim must be commenced This is usually within 3 years, although medical cases are complicated so this shouldn’t be taken as a hard and fast rule. You should still contact us if the negligence did not necessarily occur within this time frame as we may still be able to help.
No Win No Fee
We usually take cases on a Conditional Fee Agreement, or CFA basis. All this means is that if we are not successful in pursuing your claim we will not charge a fee. If we are successful we would charge a Success Fee. The success fee would be a percentage of the damages awarded. We have many years’ experience of winning medical negligence claims, and specialist knowledge negligence law. This means that we can usually beat the terms offered for success fees by other Solicitors.
After The Event (ATE) Insurance
Since the withdrawal of legal aid for medical negligence, pursing a claim of a CFA is the best way for you to have peace of mind about the financial implications of pursuing your claim. It’s also important to know that in a small number of cases a claimant may be liable for the defendants costs if the claim is not successful. We will assess whether this would be an issue in your case, and if it is we would recommend ATE insurance. ATE insurance covers you should you be liable in this way, and at beenletdown we have extremely competitive ATE policies to ensure that worries about finance need not be an issue.
