Hospital Claims – No Win No Fee
At Davies and Partners we understand that one of the fears when considering making a medical or hospital negligence claim is the potential legal costs you may incur particularly if you are unsuccessful. That is why many of our cases proceed under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), more commonly known as No Win No Fee Agreement. This will remove this financial risk of litigation and allow you access to justice.
Medical negligence claims can be complicated and as a result expensive to investigate. We understand the importance of making sure the correct funding is in place to support your claim. At the start of your case we will discuss all the funding options with you and consider which is most suitable.
It may be that you have legal expenses insurance, which is included in many household insurance policies, so it is always worth checking whether you are already covered. Legal Aid is another option that may be available in some specific circumstances.
No Win No Fee for a Hospital Negligence Claim
If neither of these routes can be used we may think the best funding option is a No Win No Fee Agreement. We will go through all the details with you so that you have a full understanding of the agreement.
Essentially it is an agreement between you and your solicitor that as your claim proceeds there will be no ongoing charge to you for our costs.
If the claim is successful our basic costs are generally paid by the Defendant.If your claim is successful you may have a deduction from your compensation to pay some of your legal fees. This deduction is however capped at 25% of your compensation for your injury and past losses (not future losses) so no more than this can be taken from your damages.
If the claim is unsuccessful you pay nothing provided that a policy of after the event insurance istaken out that will reimburse any disbursements incurred in pursuing the claim.
Therefore win or lose there is no financial risk for you.
