What constitutes medical negligence?
Medical Negligence covers any wrong, accidental or substandard care by any medical professional which subsequently causes a patient injury or exacerbates an existing injury or medical condition.
This negligence is usually caused by wrong or incorrect action or a failure to act when they should have.
If you have suffered at the hands of a medical professional then speak to Nigel Askew Solicitors today regarding a medical negligence compensation claim on a No Win No Fee basis.
How does a No Win No Fee claim work?
We fund all of our medical negligence claims using Conditional Fee Agreements, which are also commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee agreement”.
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.
For more information about No Win No Fee agreements or to start your medical negligence compensation claim, call us now on 01507 609027.
How much compensation can I claim?
The value of a 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.
Use our compensation calculator to see how much your medical negligence compensation claim might be worth.
How long do I have to claim?
The law in England & Wales states that you have 3 years after an accident or act of negligence to make a claim for personal injury.
In cases that involve children a parent can make a claim on their behalf as a “litigation friend”. The law allows any child that has been injured under the age of 18, 3 years from the date they turn 18 to claim, until they reach their 21st birthday.
If you are unsure whether you can make a medical negligence compensation claim, contact Nigel Askew Solicitors now. Our friendly solicitors can advise you whether your personal circumstances allow you to make a claim.
