If you get sick or injured due to medical negligence, you can consider claiming compensation. This compensation can help you with your medical expenses, and it can help you afford any legal fees that you may incur in the process of dealing with a claim. In Scotland, no win, no fee medical negligence claims may be the right way to go if you have suffered any injuries due to said negligence.
Medical malpractice claims are usually longer and more complex than other personal injury claims. This kind of claim is also more expensive. As a result, you may be wondering how you can afford to submit a claim like this, and what your chances of winning it might be?
As medical negligence claims experts, we believe that all victims of malpractice should receive an answer about the cause of the incident and the financial freedom to recover from it with dignity. For this reason, we at Wallace Legal provide highly-qualified and specialized lawyers that will help you throughout the whole process.
How Can No Win No Fee Medical Negligence Solicitors in Scotland Help You?
In case of medical malpractice, we will not force you to pay solicitor’s fees unless you win the claim. This means that anyone can talk to a lawyer, even if they can’t afford to pay in advance. It also means that law firms must be confident that their proceedings can succeed before they take the case.
What are the Benefits of a No Win No Fee Medical Malpractice Claims?
This approach has many advantages, the main advantage is that anyone exposed to unfair and negligent treatment can claim compensation. It does not matter what your financial background is or if you can afford it, you can submit these claims regardless. The CFA or No win no fee agreement ensures that you are not financially impacted by legal proceedings if the claim is lost.
What is a success fee?
If you make a medical claim with a no-win, no-fee agreement, and the claim is successful, then you will have to pay a certain amount, usually a percentage of the compensation. This is the success fee.
I am Considering Filing a Claim with a ‘No-Win, No-Fee’ Agreement. Do I Need to Sign Something?
At the beginning of the No-win, No-Fee procedure, the solicitor will ask you to sign a conditional fee agreement (CFA). This is a legal document that must be signed to proceed with the injury claim. It sets out the conditions that if you lose your claim, you don’t have any obligations to pay a legal fee, but you will have to pay a success fee if you win your claim. The Conditional Fee Agreement regulates your financial obligations in the event of a victory. This is why you should read the contract thoroughly before signing.
Are There Any Hidden Fees?
No. There are no hidden fees for medical negligence solicitors. You will find complete transparency about any fee payment obligations that you have. We don’t expect any prepayment. This is the beauty of ‘no-win, no-fee and claiming medical negligence.
When Will my No-Win, No-Fee Claim be Settled?
Every case is different. And medical negligence cases are complicated by many different factors. That is why you can never receive any certainty about a time frame in which the case will be solved. Ultimately, the time it takes for your claim to be resolved depends upon the factors of your case and the quality of your lawyer.
Is There a Time Limit for making a Medical Negligence Claim?
Yes. The medical negligence claim period is 3 years. This means that legal proceedings must begin within three years of the proceedings or within three years of determining that there was negligence.
