Yes, you usually have three years to bring a claim, starting from the date you first became aware that medical negligence took place. There are very few exceptions to this time limit, so be sure to get in contact as soon as possible.
The amount of compensation awarded for medical negligence depends on several factors, including how much your life has been impacted, and any financial costs such as loss of income.
We believe everyone is entitled to justice, regardless of their financial situation.
That’s why we accept claims on a no win, no fee basis – so you don’t pay any legal fees unless your claim is successful.
If your claim is successful, those responsible for your injuries will pay the majority of your legal fees.
When you contact us for a free consultation, we will explain our fee arrangements in detail so you know exactly what to expect before you make a claim.
Yes, we have helped people claim compensation for negligent treatment at private hospitals across the West Midlands, including Spire Little Aston and Spire Parkway in Solihull.
