After you’ve got in touch we’ll set up a free initial consultation where we’ll talk about your situation. We’ll then explain what will happen if you need to attend a post-mortem and/or inquest, making sure you understand everything that’s going to happen.
We’ll always aim to make things as clear and easy as possible for you. We’ll talk you through a variety of funding options available to pay for your case, ensuring that the best method is chosen for your circumstances.
Our lawyers will then collect evidence to support your claim, including medical records, documents and the opinions of independent medical experts. Using this, we’ll come to a compensation amount that best supports your needs.
The majority of fatal medical negligence cases we handle are settled out of court. If we can’t reach a settlement which we feel is fair and reasonable, or the medical professional or organisation involved denies responsibility, we’ll start court proceedings.
Even if your claim does go to court, your case might not reach trial as we’re often able to agree a settlement before it reaches the court room. If your case does go to court, we’ll be there for you every step of the way ensuring that you have the best possible chances of getting the compensation you deserve.
