Funding Medical Negligence Claims

There are various ways to fund a claim but we promise that we will always recommend the option that makes the most financial sense to you and will enable you to achieve the maximum compensation.

If you are concerned about treatment you have received then our lawyers can assess your case and advise you of the best way forward, all for free and with no obligation to take things further with us.

Call us free on 0800 054 6512 or fill in our contact form for a call back, and we can assess your circumstances and give you free advice on the options available.

The options for funding your claim include:

A ‘no win, no fee’ agreement (Conditional Fee Agreement or CFA)

A no win, no fee agreement is a very good option for most people wishing to make a claim and we are happy to take many cases on this basis. We can provide a free assessment to tell you whether your case is eligible and talk you though what is involved.

A no win, no fee agreement means you do not have to worry about paying legal costs as we only get paid if we win your case. If you lose then you will not have to pay a penny towards the cost of your case, or the legal fees of your opponent, as long as you take out insurance from our recommended provider.

If you are successful, some of your legal expenses are recoverable from the other side. For any of your costs that are not recoverable we will cap the amount taken from your compensation so that you get the fairest possible deal.

We will not ask you to pay a penny towards the cost of bringing your claim until we have won your case. This means you will not be asked to pay for any case essentials such as reports from medical experts.

There are no hidden costs involved in bringing a claim with us and we promise that you will be our number one priority at all times. Remember a no win, no fee agreement means there is absolutely no financial risk to you and you will get the fairest possible deal.

Other options for funding a claim:

  • Legal Expenses Insurance – this may be included in your home or car insurance policy.
  • Trade Union Funding – if you are a member of a trade union they may provide you with legal cover.
  • Legal Aid – is available for a limited number of cases involving those who suffered brain damage in the womb, during birth or in the first few weeks of life, subject to them meeting the financial criteria
  • Private funding – if you decide to pursue this option we can make sure you get the best possible deal
