The Government has announced a change to the “discount rate” for clinical negligence claimants
Our aim is for you to restore the quality of your life to the same standard as before the medical mistake was made. This will normally require financial compensation, and securing the compensation you deserve demands not only expert legal knowledge but also an excellent understanding of how the NHS and medical defence organisations arrive at settlement decisions.
Our team of specialist lawyers have extensive knowledge of all medical issues, not just the high profile ones. We have lawyers qualified in medicine and nursing and midwifery with valuable and practical experience of working in hospitals and lawyers who have formerly acted on behalf of the NHS and medical defence organisations. Our valuable experience and inside knowledge means that we can provide you with the strongest possible representation.
We pride ourselves on being able to work closely with claimants and their families. We will guide you sensitively through the litigation process whilst proactively progressing your compensation claim and maximising any compensation award.
We will ensure that you consistently receive not only the very best legal advice but also much needed practical support to help you to adapt and cope with the consequences of medical negligence and any resulting injury.
Our medical negligence solicitors consistently achieve outstanding results for adults and children who have suffered serious injury due to clinical negligence.
Whether you require financial assistance to fund medical treatment, care, therapy, essential equipment, adaptations to your home or to alleviate financial hardship if you’ve had to stop working, we will seek interim payments for you as soon as is practicably possible.
Our dedicated community care team can also support you during the litigation process to gain access to all appropriate Health and Social Care support.
Our specialist education team can offer you and your children support if any injury has resulted in them having special educational needs.
Our Court of Protection team assist in the management of compensation awards on behalf of clients who lack capacity to do so themselves.
Although most of the work we carry out for our clients tends to be funded through a conditional fee agreement, there are a number of different funding options available that we can discuss with you. If you would like to find out more or discuss your claim, please contact Tim Spring.
