Medical negligence solicitors are specialists who are able to put together a legal case for anyone who has received poor care from their GP or from a hospital. The aim of the solicitors is to claim compensation for any injuries that you may have received due to medical negligence. There are so many different medical negligence solicitors out there that it can be a hard task to know who to choose. This article provides some top tips on how you can go about finding a medical negligence solicitor who is best suited to your needs.
Most medical negligence solicitors will work as part of a team. You can find these teams by searching for them online. All major companies will have a website which will list details of the services that they offer along with information on how to contact them. In order to check that you will be hiring a team that will be able to provide a high quality service you will want to ask them some questions. These questions can include things like:
How long have they been established for?
What associations or trade unions are they members of?
How many people work in their legal team?
What areas do they specialize in?
What communication is offered throughout the process?
You will also want to get a clear breakdown of all of their legal fees. Some teams will offer a ‘no win no fee’ service. This is where you do not have to pay anything unless you win the case. Be sure to check just how much of the compensation you will be able to keep if you do win the case though, as some legal teams will take a percentage as part of their legal fees.
Make sure you do your research to find out information about the company. It is a good idea to get some testimonials from past clients. You can also check online for independance reviews. If you know of anyone who has had used a medical negligence team in the past them you can also ask them for recommendations.
