1stClaims Compliance Statement

1stClaims comply with the SRA Code of Conduct 2011 published by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Any solicitor we refer you to is an independent professional from whom you will receive impartial and confidential advice. You are free to choose another solicitor. Our law firm panel members are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Your nominated 1stClaims appointed Solicitor pays 1stClaims a flat monthly marketing fee to enable 1stClaims to market their services via the website. The marketing scheme is collective in nature for those paying a fee, who are allocated cases on a rota basis. It is not a whole of the market search as it is limited to members who have agreed to provide your required service with us. The fee is paid to 1stClaims and it does not affect the value of your claim in any way.

Medical negligence is more complicated than general personal injury claims and often it is not possible to offer a no win no fee agreement. However, initial enquiries are completely free of charge and if there were to be any charges your solicitor would make it abundantly clear to you before they started charging for their time.

Our Panel Solicitors will discuss with you your eligibility to take your potential Medical Negligence claim forward on a legally aided basis. If you are not eligible for Legal Aid other funding options such as Legal Expense Insurance and a no Win No Fee agreement will be considered.

Please tick the box on our enquiry form if you are happy for us to disclose your personal data to our law firm panel members (third parties) so that they can contact you.
