Frequently Asked Questions – Clinical Negligence
How much is my claim worth?
For many we know that pursuing a claim is not always about financial compensation. No amount of money can compensate for the acute suffering endured by both the individual and their family. However bringing a medical negligence claim is necessary to secure the funds for on-going expert treatment and care.
For all clinical negligence claims it is impossible to accurately assess its value until we have obtained the necessary medical evidence and taken into account your particular circumstances. For example the severity of the injury, the recovery period and the required treatment all have an effect on the value of the case. If the injury has impacted on your ability to work and look after yourself this affects how much you as the claimant could be awarded.
You are invited for a free initial no obligation consultation with an expert solicitor during which we can discuss the particular circumstances of your potential claim.
Although not definitive, we aim from the outset to give you our assessment of how successful your claim is likely to be; so that you can plan for the future.
