    How much compensation can I claim?

    The value of any complex personal injury claim depends on a number of factors including the type of negligence you have suffered, the severity of your physical or psychological injuries and how long it takes for you to make a full recovery, if ever.

    The value is also dependent on whether you have suffered any financial losses as a result of the negligence.  These financial losses can include lost earnings, as well as future lost earnings and pensions, ongoing medical care and if any changes are required to your home. Medical negligence claims can range in value from £25,000 to several million pounds.

    How much does it cost to start a new claim?


    We do not charge any fees to get a new claim up and running. We fund all of our claims using No Win No Fee agreements.

    What is a No Win No Fee agreement?

    A No Win No Fee agreement is how we fund all of our medical negligence claims. These agreements are also commonly known as either a “Conditional Fee Agreement” or a “CFA”.

    The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client.  If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time.  For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
