Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, at Barrister-Direct, we work under a Conditional Fee Agreement, more commonly known as a ‘No Win No Fee Agreement.’ If you win, you will pay us a maximum of a 25% success fee, if you lose, you don’t pay us anything. It’s our promise.
There is no single answer for how long a clinical negligence claim can take. Sometimes, the Defendant will admit that they breached their duty towards you, other times, they will not, or, if your symptoms are on-going, you will need further medical evidence or tests. On average, our clients experience conclusion of their claims between 12-24 months. During this time, we ensure that you are regularly updated about your claim, with letters, emails, telephone calls or home visits. We will also do everything we can to speed up your claim, whilst ensuring that you are getting the best possible result.
No – despite making a claim, you are still entitled to Medical Treatment and their failure to do so would give rise to a claim in itself.
We will always try and negotiate your claim outside of court, to try and ensure that your claim is resolved as quickly as possible. However, if the Defendant doesn’t accept liability or doesn’t agree with our valuation of your injuries, we will start court proceedings. Only 5% of cases actually go to court, though, and we will keep you advised at all times in relation to this, and provide any support that you may need, should your claim proceed to a trial.
