Patients who suffer severe injury as a result of negligent treatment by their General Practitioner or hospital may be eligible to claim for medical negligence. If you believe you have a valid claim, you have every right to take legal action to prevent such mistakes from happening again.
However, legal costs can be discouraging to an extent that some claimants may abandon their fight for justice even when it is clearly not their fault. This is where you seek legal advice about funding medical negligence claims.
A conditional fee agreement has given everyone the opportunity to seek compensation even without any initial funds required to rent a solicitor. Our no win no fee medical negligence solicitors are willing to review your case.
What Is A No Win No Fee Arrangement?
A No win no Fee is an agreement between a solicitor and the claimant which states that there will be no upfront charges for legal fees until you Win the case. With a no win no fee arrangement, you do not have to worry about funding your medical claim.
It is also referred to as a conditional fee agreement, where you can make a medical negligence claim without paying legal fees. This contract can be made between an NHS negligence solicitor and a claimant or an arrangement between a Law firm and their client who is claiming for medical negligence.
How Does A No Win No Fee Arrangement Work?
No Win no fee agreement simply means that a solicitor or law firm will be taking responsibility for any legal costs incurred during the claim process. They take the risk of taking on your case if you have a strong ground for your injury caused by negligence.
If you win the case, your legal representative is expected to receive a success fee which is usually 25% of your total compensation award. Usually a solicitor will take out an insurance policy on your behalf, known as ATE Insurance before your claim begins. An insurance policy can protect a claimant in the event that they lose the case.
If you win the case then you are required to pay legal costs from the compensation awarded to you. At nhs negligence claim, our no win no fee solicitors will offer you the legal advice you need before you begin the claim process, so contact us today.
What Is After The Event Insurance (ATE) And Why Do I Need It?
ATE Insurance policy was created to protect victims of NHS negligence against unplanned legal costs involved in making a claim. Usually, your legal representative will ask you to take out after the event insurance besides your no win no fee funding arrangement.
It covers the legal costs or disbursements for lawsuits and enables claimants to follow through with their nhs negligence claims safely. It may be one of the surest ways of providing financial security even if you have to pay additional fees to opponents. The cost of an ATE insurance policy largely depends on the nature of your claim. Speak to our solicitors if you need further clarification on getting your ATE insurance policy.
What Is Covered In A No Win No Fee Compensation Claim?
A lot is factored into your claim depending on the severity of your pain and suffering. The legal team handling your case will consider how medical negligence has negatively affected you or your family. They will also look into the circumstances surrounding your claim, so that the right amount can be claimed for you.
The final amount in a settlement also depends on the victim's recovery process and the financial implications this has caused him. Our no win no fee solicitors will ensure they recover all including:
- Loss Of Mobility.
- Cost Of After Care Support.
