Costs of Claiming Medical Negligence

That is why all 1stClaims’ solicitors will provide you with completely free, no obligation advice if you call us or contact us by making an online enquiry. We believe that it is your legal right to have a free explanation of what went wrong, and perhaps more importantly, what you can do about it to put things right!
Initial Contact with a Solicitor
Initial contact with our solicitors is completely free of charge. They will explore all funding options available for you (see below) and advise you whether they can help you with your claim, and if so, how your claim can be funded. You can then decide if you would like to proceed or not (and will have incurred no expense up to that point). In most cases if you can make a claim, you will be able to proceed on a No Win No Fee Medical Negligence Claim basis. NOTE: If your case is successful your Solicitor will deduct up to a maximum of 25% of your final settlement or compensation award as payment for their fees. You can find out more about No Win No Fee arrangements and the potential costs that can be incurred by clicking here.
Other Methods Of Funding Your Claim
Usually most people proceed under a No Win No Fee Agreement (NOTE: If your case is successful your Solicitor will deduct up to a maximum of 25% of your final settlement or compensation award as payment for their fees. You can find out more about No Win No Fee arrangements and the potential costs that can be incurred by clicking here.), but if that option is not possible or chosen, there are still a variety of other methods, as detailed below:
- Legal expense insurance - Household contents insurance policies often provide legal expense insurance cover for taking action in claims for clinical negligence. Your 1stClaims solicitor will consider your policy documentation and assess whether this will be a possibility.
- Trade union assistance - If you or your partner is a member a trade union, this sometimes entitles you to qualify for legal assistance for a clinical negligence claim. Your 1stClaims solicitor will consider this for you.
- Legal Aid - Our 1stClaims solicitors can provide legal aided if it is available for your claim (or your child's claim). Your 1stClaims solicitor will discuss with you the legal services requirements and if you meet the criteria will complete the appropriate forms on your behalf to make an application for legal aid. If the claim is on behalf of a child they will normally receive legal aid as only the child's income and assets are taken into consideration.
- Private Payment - If none of these funding options are available you can decide to pay privately for your advice.
