What is the difference between medical negligence and clinical negligence?
There is no difference and medical negligence claims are often referred as clinical negligence claims.

How much compensation can I realistically expect from my medical negligence claim?
The amount of compensation you will receive is determined on the basis of the severity of your suffering through physical injury, emotional trauma, psychological damage, loss of income or a combination of these misadventures.

Starting your medical negligence compensation claim
Medical negligence claims should be filed within 3 years after the mishap. Typically, cases are hotly contested and as a result, clinical negligence cases are usually resolved through proceedings in court. Consequently, the need to appoint experienced solicitors is paramount. This is an absolute necessity because the defending parties invariably appoint skilled and experienced lawyers to defend them.

Clinical negligence claims process
A medical solicitor has to prove that a doctor, surgeon or authority was negligent. In order to do this, your lawyers will require your medical records and submit them to medical experts who will then determine if a case for negligence can be made. If so, your lawyers will advice you on your options which, failing a negotiated settlement, will leave no other recourse other than to settle the dispute in court.

How much will court proceedings cost me?
If following an initial assessment of your case, your lawyers determine that you have a good chance of winning, they will most likely be willing to represent you on a no win no fee basis. This is a Conditional Fee Agreement under which if you lose your case, you will not be charged by your solicitors. Lawyers offering no win no fee assistance usually require that clients take up Legal Expenses Insurance as cover and your medical solicitor can advice you on this aspect. This insurance sometimes comes packaged in household policies so you should first check with your solicitor if your household insurance covers this provision. If you don't have Legal Expenses Insurance as part of your household content policy, your solicitor will advice you to take an After-the-Event (ATE) insurance to cover your claim. With a Conditional Fee Agreement backed with Legal Expenses Insurance, if you were to lose the case, your insurance covers all expenses including the other party’s costs, your lawyers’ costs as well as disbursements. If you win the case, you should receive 100% of your damages and the other party picks up all expenses including your lawyer's fees and other cost associated with the court proceedings, including disbursement costs.

Assessing suitability of solicitors - questions to ask them
Before appointing suitably experienced medical solicitors to help you claim clinical negligence compensation, you should consult several and ask questions such as the following:

  • Can you help me claim damages on a no win no fee basis?
  • Can you help me with Legal Expenses Insurance cover?
  • If you win my case, will you forward me 100% of my compensation without making deductions?
  • How many experienced medical solicitors do you have in your firm?
  • Do your medical solicitors regularly update their medical knowledge?
  • How many medical negligence cases have they previously handled?
  • What percentage of medical negligence cases have they win?
  • Are there any potential liabilities and costs associated with my claim?
  • Are there any hidden costs associated with my claim?
