Clinical, Medical & Dental Negligence

If you had an elective surgery such as a total hip, knee or shoulder replacement, a complex trauma surgery or even a simple procedure which has gone terribly wrong, or perhaps you were misdiagnosed or your conditions worsened significantly after medical intervention, there may be grounds to make a claim for any malpractice which has caused injury, adverse effects, suffering or loss. This also includes child birth too. Negligence and breach cases come in many forms which can be genuine but costly mistakes, poor medical standards, or a serious breach of duty which can impact a patient’s health, safety, appearance, and wellbeing. Legal Assist has a dedicated panel of medical negligence solicitors which are specialists in complicated negligence matters. They have helped claimants all over the UK claim the compensation they deserve against the public and private health sectors. You can start a medical negligence claim within 3 years of finding out about the negligence or breach, or if you were a child at the time of the treatment, you have 3 years from the date of your 18th Birthday to make a claim.

Solicitor’s Fees

Fees vary from law firm to law firm. Some may charge you on hourly rates, fixed fees, or staged payment options. We do not deal with this aspect so if the price quoted by one of our panel members is too high or doesn’t seem competitive, you do not have to go with that law firm. It doesn’t cost you anything to have a conversation with them to see if they are the right fit for you and your circumstances. We do not charge you a fee for introducing you to any of our panel members and the initial telephone consultation with the solicitor’s firm is free of charge.

Legal Assist does not offer legal advice of any kind. Our panel solicitors may be able to offer their services to you however you are under no obligation to utilise their services even after your initial consultation with them. Any solicitors firm we recommend is an independent firm from whom you will receive impartial professional legal advice from. We are paid a recommendation fee for successful introductions however this has no impact on the level of service you would receive with them or the fees that you would be charged by that panel member. You are also free to seek legal advice through a solicitor’s firm or legal advisor of your own choice or pursue this matter yourself for free.
