Medical Negligence Claims Solicitors in Warrington, Cheshire
Sadly mistakes happen and, when they do, they can have serious consequences for the patient and their family. This is why hospitals, doctors, healthcare professionals, nurses and GPs have a duty of care towards their patients and are required by law to hold insurance cover for medical negligence and medical malpractice claims. If you have suffered pain and injury as a result of medical negligence we can help.
Medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence) is a complex area of law but here, at DSM Legal Solicitors in Warrington, we have the experience and the knowledge to help you.
Making a Medical Negligence Claim
Making a medical negligence claim against the NHS or a private hospital
Medical negligence claims offer people a much-needed chance to recover compensation, whether the treatment was carried out in the NHS or privately. If you think you may have a claim call us for advice on 01925 937070 or complete our Enquiry Form by clicking here. We will call you back at a time convenient to you.
We will guide and support you through the whole process and ask only that you provide us with as much information as possible at the beginning of the case. This includes copies of medical records, correspondence and any other documentation in your possession so that we can make an accurate assessment of your claim.
If, having considered the evidence you have provided, we believe that your prospects of succeeding in your claim are good we will offer to take your case on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.
No win no fee – what does it mean?
‘No win no fee’ means that if you do not win your case, you do not have to pay our fees. If your case does succeed and we obtain compensation for you, then you will pay a contribution to our fees. The contribution will be based on a percentage of your compensation and will be discussed with you at the outset. You will not be expected to pay for medical reports, barrister’s fees or Court fees.
