After you’ve contacted us, we’ll set up a free initial consultation to discuss your case and see if you have a claim. We’ll also talk about what the best way to pay for your claim is, including a No Win No Fee agreement*.
We’ll then get in touch with those responsible for your negligent treatment at an early stage and ask them to accept blame for your injuries or illness. If they accept responsibility, we’ll try to secure interim compensation payments to help you pay for private medical care and other ongoing expenses before you receive your settlement. Any interim payments you get will be taken out of your final compensation award.
Our solicitors will work with independent medical professionals to work out how much compensation you'll need to support your recovery and quality of life. These experts will see what mistakes were made in your treatment and what your future treatment needs will be.
We’ll always try and negotiate claims out of court to keep your claim as short as we can. However, if your opponent doesn’t accept responsibility or doesn’t agree with the amount of compensation we feel you need, we’ll start court proceedings.
Even when trial dates have been set, claims are still often settled before reaching court. If your claim does need to go to court we’ll be there to help you every step of the way, talking you through what will happen so you feel as comfortable as possible.
