What is Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence – also known as clinical negligence – is a rare occurrence. But when it happens to you, the effects can be devastating.

​How will I fund my medical negligence claim?

For many people, funding a medical negligence claim is one of the biggest concerns they may have. You may be worried that you will not be able to afford to pay for your solicitor’s services upfront, which could put you off the idea of getting justice for the harm you have suffered.

But in many cases, you don’t need to worry. Solicitors now typically offer No Win No Fee agreements​ for clinical negligence cases. This was introduced to enable patients who had suffered from malpractice to get the help they needed to recover without facing the stress of funding it all at the start.

A No Win No Fee medical negligence claim will allow you to focus on your recovery and put together the strongest case possible, instead of the potential impact it would have on your finances.

No Win No Fee service

No Win No Fee – also known as a contingency or conditional fee agreement (CFA) – means you don’t need to worry about paying for upfront legal fees. Quite simply, if a solicitor takes on your case and you don’t win any compensation, you don't pay them their fees. No risk, no catch. If you don’t win, you don’t pay.

Where we offer No Win No Fee services typically customers pay 25% of the amount recovered by our solicitors, although this will be subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be less than this but it will never be more.
