New legislation means changes for clinical negligence claims

From 1st April this year, the way in which claims resulting from a medical accident are funded by solicitors will change because of new legislation introduced by the government. So, what does this mean for victims of clinical negligence?


To date we have been able to guarantee that a claimant we work with under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) will not have to pay any legal costs, whether they win or lose. We will continue to do this for all clams that we take on by 31st March 2013. After this date, we will still be able to work under a CFA so a claimant will still not have to pay if their claim is unsuccessful. Successful claimants will have to pay; however we can guarantee that they will pay nothing until they are awarded compensation.


At Gadsby Wicks, providing access to justice for our clients is one of our key concerns. We only take on clinical negligence cases and are the only law firm in England and Wales to specialise solely in this field. This means that we have the expertise to accurately assess your case, and the skills to fight for the compensation you deserve.


We can only make the cost guarantee for claims taken on by 31st March 2013. Call us now free on 0800 321 3112 for a no cost, no obligation discussion with one of our nurse advisers, or complete our online enquiry form.
