    The cost of medical negligence claims

    The cost of medical negligence claims

    In 1998, legal aid for cases of personal injury claims was withdrawn. As a result, many people refrained from bringing such cases forward for fear of incurring legal costs that may ultimately prove not to be affordable. Even the subsequent introduction of the famous ‘no win – no fee’ clause, which is essentially a conditional fee agreement, failed to help many individuals looking for compensation in medical negligence cases, accidents at work, on the road and other instances of personal injury. This was partly due to the fact that around about the same period of time, the Citizens Advice Bureau significantly reduced efforts to assist injured parties in finding suitable solicitors to assist them in making claims for compensation. The cost of medical negligence claims can differ, depending on the type of claim

    Accident Advice Helpline and medical negligence claims

    In the year 2000, Accident Advice Helpline was established in order to assist victims of injury by medical negligence, work accidents and so on in sourcing suitable legal representation at affordable cost. Endorsed by Esther Rantzen, renowned TV personality and consumer rights champion, Accident Advice Helpline provides free advice online and through a 24/7 free-phone helpline.

    A law firm specialising in personal injury claims, Accident Advice Helpline employs skilled advisers who will first of all ask callers to provide a few details of their situation and assess the realistic chances of a claim succeeding. If you have a strong case for a compensation claim against medical negligence, for example, you will then be provided with the best solicitor to deal with your case under the ‘no win, no fee’* agreement.

    All cases of claims for medical negligence compensation, compensation for injury by work accidents, road and other accidents taken on by Accident Advice Helpline’s legal team are dealt with on a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ basis. You do not need any money to initiate your claim. Any amount that becomes payable will only become payable if your case is won and you receive compensation.

    In other words, if your case is not successful, you will pay nothing, but if it is won, part of your compensation will be deducted in order to cover the representing solicitor and other costs. You should be aware of the cost of medical negligence claims prior to submitting your claim.
