Medical Negligence Solicitors
Notice re Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Our team are all still working and continuing to look after all our clients legal matters and take new instructions or simply just give advice. The safety of our clients and staff is important to us and we are not holding face to face meetings or conducting home visits at the present time and we are following Government guidelines - although our physical office doors are now shut, our virtual offices are open and we are here for all our clients via telephone and email.
If you feel that you have suffered a Medical Accident, you are entitled to an explanation and you may be entitled to compensation.
Medical Negligence cases can be brought against Medical Professionals, including, doctors, surgeons, pharmacists, dentists, nurses, midwives and even physiotherapists, NHS trusts, nursing home staff and private healthcare providers.
It might not be easy for you making a claim against the NHS or a health care professional who has treated you, but we will handle your claim with sensitivity using the years of experience we have in this specialist area.
All our solicitors working in the area only handle medical, clinical and surgical negligence cases, so you can be confident you are in the hands of an expert. We handle cases from all over the UK and give every one of our clients the same high levels of service.
If your medical accident was avoidable and has left you with lasting effects, then we want to talk to you about how we can help.
At Pearson Solicitors, our dedicated client service team, Gemma, Lois and Daniel, will listen to your situation and will carefully guide you through how we can help. Their specialist customer service training and empathy complement our legal expertise. Speaking to Gemma and Lois is particularly welcomed by many of our female clients when discussing details of their medical procedures.
In this way, we can manage cases during the investigative phase, meet clients for the initial first interviews, discuss funding arrangements and assist them with regards to making complaints, obtaining clients’ medical records, preparing a summary of the records and instructing appropriate experts.
Funding for your Medical Negligence Case
Our dedicated Medical Negligence team is approved by the Legal Aid Agency. This means that we have recognised expertise and experience in medical negligence matters and can offer specialist advice. It also means that we are one of only a few firms authorised to apply for Legal Aid to fund your case, if you meet the qualifying criteria for Legal Aid.
No Win, No Legal Costs
We believe that concerns about the cost of making a claim shouldn’t be a factor in putting a client off claiming the compensation that they could be due and that they deserve. There can be long term consequences to the effects of medical negligence and long term care and convalescence is often needed.
In most cases when you choose us to represent you we are able to provide the options of No Win No Fee or Legal Expense Insurance to help fund a claim. When instructing us our aim is to give you the best possible protection from having to pay legal fees.
In most circumstances, we will give you a 100% guarantee that if we don’t win your case, you will have nothing to pay.
Call us for a free, confidential consultation about how we can help and which funding option is best for you.
