I’ve Used The Medical Negligence Calculator: What’s Next?

Once you have used the medical negligence calculator, what happens next is up to you. Were you surprised at how much you might be eligible for? Would you like to make a claim? Here we run through some of the questions you may need to answer if you decide to find out more from our trained medical negligence solicitors. A medical negligence case is like any other legal issue – you must begin by building a case, with the best evidence you have. But, don’t worry. It is a straightforward process and we take you through it one step at a time. You will never feel any pressure to proceed with a claim, and you can halt the process at any time. Our reputation is based upon having happy claimants, so we always put you first. So, what questions will we need to answer?

What Injuries Did You Suffer? 

We will start by gathering evidence to help you make a successful claim. This involves collating a timeline of when everything happened, and putting this together with your medical notes.

  • You will need to tell us what injuries occurred and when.
  • You will need to tell us how these injuries are now? Have they healed or are they still affecting you?
  • Have you been unable to work because of your injuries? If so, when did you stop working?
  • Did your injuries cause you emotional distress?

When we have a clear idea of the extent of the harm that has been caused to you, we can begin the next stage of the process.

Gathering Medical Evidence 

Next we will have to look at the medical notes that cover the incident that led to your injury. We will ask for your permission to see these notes, which are kept at the hospital where you were treated, and at your GP’s surgery. We will need to see your test results and letters between doctors dealing with your case. When you give us permission to request your notes, you can relax while we process your claim. We will consult with doctors who are experts in medical negligence law, who will review your case. When we have your case prepared we will let you know. All you need to do is wait for the outcome.

No Win No Fee

There are no fees to pay up front for this service. If we don’t win the case, you pay nothing. If we do win your case, we will take a percentage of your claim to cover legal costs. We pride ourselves on being transparent and totally professional with all our claimants. We will tell you exactly what is happening at every stage of the process. If you choose not to proceed, we will never pressurise you. We have helped victims of medical negligence to claim millions of pounds in compensation over the years and have all the expertise you need to succeed with your claim, should you decide to bring one.
