No Win, No Fee Clincial Negligence Claims

To provide everyone with easy access to justice and minimise the financial risks of taking legal action, most of the Clinical Negligence cases we pursue are funded by a Conditional Fee Agreement.

Often known as a ‘No Win, No Fee’ case, bringing a claim like this means you do not need to pay anything towards the cost, unless you breach the pre-agreed terms of the CFA.

In effect, we share the financial risk with you because we only get paid if you are successful. Win the case and we will aim to recover our charges and expenses from the person or party who was at fault. You may have to pay some of these, but the amount is capped and will be deducted from any settlement you receive.

Other funding options are also available and we will always consider these and explain which one is the best option for you.

From the very first call to the completion of the wills and associated documents, Dermot Kirkwood and his colleagues were responsive, professional and extremely sensitive - working with us to update Wills in very difficult circumstances. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend.

Mr and Mrs Wilson

Jonathan Crawford was excellent and very polite and a pleasure to deal with. Thank You!

Mr Leigh

Your experience, tenacity, and caring were greatly appreciated, in a situation which was most distressing. I truly do not know how I would have coped without your aid and support. I would not hesitate to recommend you and your company in future to anyone.
