About your claim

How much you can claim will depend on a number of factors related to the injury received from negligence, malpractice or defective medical product. Some of those factors are listed below:

  • Degree of pain, suffering and ongoing problems caused
  • Loss of earnings from being unable to work / return to work
  • Support and care that you need now and in the future related to your injury
  • Support for modifications made to your home
  • Specialist mobility equipment required

The first thing to do is to get in touch with us so we can provide a free consultation and discuss your case. We can quickly work out if you have a claim by asking a few questions. We will also let you know if you will benefit from a No win no fee arrangement. If after your free consultation you decide to proceed with a compensation claim we will proceed with the stages below.

Investigation stage
We need to determine the extent of your injury and any monetary losses directly related to your injury / illness. It may be necessary to have a medical examination carried out to accurately identify your injury and asses your suffering.

Compensation calculation
We will calculate how much compensation you are likely to receive from a successful claim taking into account the various factors associated with your injury including loss of income, pain and suffering, medical expenses and future expenses including future care and specialists equipment and any modifications necessary to your home. We then will put this amount to your opponent and they have two options. Accept the claim, or contest the claim.

Conclusion
If your opponent accepts then you will be awarded the compensation due. If they do not accept the claim then the next phase will be court proceedings. Please not this does not always mean a case goes to trial it simply means a court takes over management of the case where an opponent still has the opportunity to settle your claim. If you have to go to court rest assured we will be with you every step of the way. And remember if we agreed to handle your claim under a no win no fee agreement then you will not have to pay anything if your claim was unsuccessful.

As with almost all compensation claims of this type you have three years from the date of the injury / illness caused to start a claim. Sometimes there are exceptions, for example people unable to make their own legal decisions such as children or adults unable to make there own legal decisions.

In the case of defective medical equipment / products a claim must also be made within 10 years of that product going into circulation. This cannot be extended. Time limits are always on a case by case basis. We can of course help identify this when investigating your claim.
