No Win No Fee
You and an expert medical negligence lawyer will review your situation for free. Together you will determine if you have a claim, how much it could be worth, and when it will be likely to settle. If you both decide it's worth pursuing, go to step two.
Your lawyer will work closely with you to gather evidence. Medical records, financial records, statements from family and friends. The lawyer will engage expert medical specialists on your behalf to prove you were mistreated. They will then reduce all of this evidence into a single dollar figure. This will be the basis for your claim in step three.
The lawyer will then lodge a statement of claim against the medical professional's insurer. Evidence will be exchanged and informal negotiation conferences will be held. Less than 5% of medical negligence matters cannot be resolved informally, and your lawyer and you will then decide if you need to go to court.
You don’t pay a cent in professional fees, unless we win. Once the medical professional's insurer agrees to pay you, our fees will come directly from your compensation.
This means you will never be left out-of-pocket.
