To make a compensation claim for an injury caused by a defective medical product, the first thing you need to do is get in touch with us for a free consultation. We'll discuss what's happened to you, advise you on whether or not we think you can claim, and work out whether you could benefit from a No Win No Fee* arrangement.
If you do decide to make a claim with us, we'll usually follow the same three stages:
- Investigation. We'll begin by determining the extent of your injury or illness, and any losses that you may experience as a result. This may involve an examination carried out by a medical expert.
- Compensation. We'll work out how much compensation you should get based on the severity of your injuries, your pain and suffering, any medical expenses you've had, and your ability to get back to work. We'll put this amount to your opponent, and they can either accept or contest your claim.
- Conclusion. If your opponent accepted blame, you'll be awarded compensation. If not, court proceedings will begin.
Starting proceedings doesn't mean that your claim will definitely go to trial. Instead, it means that the court takes over the management of your case – and there is still the opportunity for your opponent to settle.
If you do have to go to court, we'll be there to support you every step of the way. If we agreed to handle your claim under a No Win No Fee* arrangement, then you won't have to pay anything if you were unsuccessful.
If you have any questions about the claims process, please contact us today on 0800 121 6567 for your free initial consultation.
