We will discuss the best way to fund your legal claim. There are a number of options which may be available to you:
You may be able to fund the legal claim yourself; your solicitor will be able to advise you about the cost of bringing a claim.
Legal Expenses Insurance
You may have insurance policies that might include legal expenses cover which could be used to finance a clinical negligence claim. Often there is a set limit on the legal costs and you may be expected to instruct a solicitor on the insurers’ own list. However, you should always ask to be referred to a clinical negligence specialist solicitor.
Conditional Fee Agreements (’No-Win-No-Fee’)
These agreements are often referred to as ‘no-win no-fee’ agreements and mean that you won’t have to pay our fees if you don’t win the case. Because of the complexity of a clinical negligence case we may require you to pay for some initial investigations to assess how strong your case is before entering into an agreement. This is usually the cost of your GP or Hospital records.
We always take out insurance (‘after-the-event’ insurance) to protect you from the possibility of having to pay the other sides costs if you should lose the case.
