Medical Negligence Solicitor

Introduction to Medical Negligence Solicitors

A medical negligence solicitor is one who specialises in handling court cases that deal with patients who were harmed or injured as a direct result of the medical negligence of a doctor, nurse, hospital or other medical professional or medical facility. They are experts in medical negligence law and have a full understanding of what criteria must be met in order to receive compensation in court. They meet with potential claimants to give them legal counsel and advise them as to if their particular case falls under medical negligence law and if they have enough evidence to pursue a case in court.

Medical Negligence Solicitors - Benefits in Court

When you go to court it is a good idea to have a medical negligence solicitor counselling you because it may mean the difference between winning your case or not. The medical negligence law is very confusing and unless you understand all of the aspects of the law it can be very difficult to win in court. A medical negligence solicitor will have the expertise in what types of evidence is best for court cases to help you prove that your harm or injury was caused as a result of medical negligence.

A medical negligence solicitor almost always deals exclusively with medical negligence cases. This means they are constantly working with doctors and hospitals that may be able to provide you with medical evidence. They will understand both the medical terms involved in the case and the laws that dictate medical negligence cases. Your medical negligence solicitor will also be able to help you calculate your damages and will help you determine future expenses as a result of your injury or harm. They will be able to help you gather the evidence necessary to help you win the compensation you deserve to help cover both current and future expenses.

Affording a Medical Negligence Solicitor

Some people do not file a medical negligence claim in court because they believe that they will not be able to afford the costs of hiring a medical negligence solicitor. There are a few methods available that can help you cover the legal fees of paying for a medical negligence solicitor. The first method that may be available to you is to Legal Aid which was created to help people receive legal counsel at a lower cost or for free. In order to qualify for Legal Aid, a person must meet the low income guidelines that are set up by the government. To see if you qualify, you should contact your local authority.

Another way that has been created to help people afford a medical negligence solicitor are medical negligence no win no fee agreements. Under this type of agreement, you will not owe the solicitor any money unless your case is won in court and then the solicitor takes his fees out of your settlement. This will help you receive legal counsel with no money down and no risk of needing to pay the solicitor if you were to lose in court. These no win no fee agreements are very popular and they are offered by many medical negligence solicitors.
