What Information will my 1stClaims solicitor need?

In readiness for speaking to your solicitor you should consider and obtain the following details:

  • the personal details of the person who has received the negligent treatment
  • the names of the doctors/ specialists who have provided treatment
  • the addresses of all doctors surgery's and hospitals where treatment has been provided
  • the dates the treatment was provided

What will happen at the meeting?

After discussing the case with you, your solicitors should be able to:

  • advise you how your claim will proceed
  • discuss appropriate funding methods with you
  • explain the potential compensation you could expect to recover
  • advise you on the potential difficulties and strengths with your case
  • give you a timescale with regards to how long things could take

The first step for the solicitor will be to obtain the medical records detailing all the treatment that has been provided to you. Your solicitor will then instruct a medical expert to look at your case. They will look through your medical records and may also meet and examine you. The expert will then produce a formal report setting out their view on the treatment you have received and whether there has been any negligence.

When considering taking legal action against a NHS health professional or NHS health body you may also want to contemplate taking your matter up with the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman. The Ombudsman will ask the organisation to take action to put matters right where possible and recommend how to  improve its services however, he cannot represent you in legal proceedings.
You may pursue a complaint with the Ombudsman simultaneously to exploring taking legal action against your health provider. You have to use the NHS complaints procedure before taking your complaint up with the Ombudsman and although this is not mandatory for taking legal action, you and your solicitor may find it helpful before deciding to start legal proceedings.
