After you’ve contacted us, we’ll set up a free initial consultation to discuss your case and whether you have a legal claim on behalf of your child. We’ll discuss what funding options are available to you to pay for your claim, including either Legal Aid for a Child’s claim or a
No Win No Fee agreement*.
We’ll then get in touch with those responsible for your child’s negligent treatment at an early stage to see if they accept the blame for your child’s injuries. If they accept responsibility, we’ll try to secure interim compensation payments which can fund private medical care and ongoing expenses, before the claim fully settles. Any interim payments will be taken out of your final compensation award.
Our experts will look into your case in detail, gathering evidence from independent medical professionals. These experts evaluate what care your child should have received and can determine any future implications to their health. They’ll also advise us on the care they will need in the future.
We’ll always try and negotiate claims out of court, keeping the claim process 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.
