Why do you need counsel for a medical negligence claim?
It’s crucial to receive proper counsel from a qualified solicitor for any legal matter, but if you’re considering a medical negligence claim, this can become more important than ever.
Due to the subjective nature of what constitutes an acceptable standard of care, it can be extremely complex to prove medical negligence has occurred. An experienced medical negligence solicitor from our network will know which processes to follow and can help you seek the compensation you deserve on a no-win, no-fee basis.
This means that you won’t be advised to make a claim unless our team is confident you can win it – saving you time and stress if your claim is outside the eligibility period, or the evidence isn’t strong enough.
Additionally, at a time when you’re already feeling vulnerable due to the far-reaching and sometimes life-changing effects medical negligence can have on your physical and emotional wellbeing, the last thing you should have to do is worry about entering into legal proceedings. By seeking counsel from one of our expert solicitors, the hard work is taken away from you: all you need to do is give us the facts of your case, and if we think you’ve got a claim, we’ll do the rest.
Fighting a medical negligence claim can sometimes be as simple as sending a letter, but more often it will involve finding medical experts and witnesses, compiling detailed medical reports and entering into negotiations about how much compensation is fair to give you. In a few cases it may even go all the way to court.
Our solicitors are experienced in dealing with all of the above, and will fight to get you the best possible outcome – whether that comes from negotiating a settlement, or appearing in court to represent your case.
What happens when I speak to my solicitor?
When we connect you to one of our experts, they’ll ask you questions about your case, trying to establish:
- When, where and why you had medical treatment
- If you had any earlier related medical problems
- The names of all medical professionals who saw you
- What your diagnosis was and how your medical team arrived at that diagnosis
- How much detail you were given about the treatment you were going to have
- Whether there are any witnesses to your negligence.
This information will help our team determine whether or not you have a valid claim and how likely you are to win. Although in principle a medical negligence claim is similar to any other kind of personal injury claim, the details are usually far more complex and to prove that the defendant breached their duty of care in such a way to cause you harm is far from easy.
However, if it is determined you do have a case, your solicitor will be able to inform you of next steps – starting with them sending a letter to the defendant to set out your case and request details of your medical records.
If you think you have a claim and would like to seek legal counsel from one of our friendly experts, contact us today.
