Because we are specialist medical negligence solicitors who only work in this area of law and only for claimants, we can often build a stronger case than other solicitors who may have less experience, particularly when it comes to complex claims. This gives us particular expertise when setting out the details of a claim and negotiating a settlement. We are also prepared to go all the way to Trial if we feel it is necessary and prepare all the claims we take on on that basis.
Whilst the Judicial College issues guidelines to legal practitioners to help them assess damages in personal injury and medical negligence cases, the payment guidance is given in ranges. For example, compensation for a severe back injury with damage to the spinal cord could range from £69,200 to £122,350. In addition, compensation will take account of financial losses already incurred as well as anticipated losses in the future. A solicitor who specialises in medical negligence claims will be more familiar with similar cases and will often be able to negotiate a better outcome.Posted in Financial
