At Barwells our knowledgeable medical negligence solicitors are here to support you through every step of the process. We will help you submit the initial complaint and will assess whether you have a valid case to make a negligence claim.
If you do decide to claim for compensation then we can help you put funding in place - this could be through legal aid or an existing insurance policy or, depending on your case, we may be able to offer to work on a no-win, no-fee basis. We will then collate all the necessary evidence, medical records and documentation to support your claim.
The compensation process can take time and so it is important that you have a good relationship with your solicitor. That is why we take the time to get to know you personally and understand your own particular case. We understand that talking about medical issues can sometimes be difficult but we will do all we can to put you at ease and although we will talk to you in detail about what happened, we will only ask the questions we need to.
Many people ask whether they will have to go to court when claiming for compensation. The good news is that only a very small percentage of cases do need to go to court - wherever possible, the majority of claims are settled out of court.
If you are considering making a complaint against your healthcare provider, it’s natural to have lots of questions. You will want to know if making a complaint could affect any ongoing treatment or affect your relationship with medical staff. And you will want to know what costs and timescales are involved. That is why we offer a free, initial telephone conversation so that we can hear your story and provide answers to your questions.
You can talk to us in complete confidence. Our friendly and knowledgeable solicitors are here to explain the claims process in simple terms - avoiding legal and medical jargon. So for an informal chat to discuss your case, give us a call today on 0800 316 3555.
