As a firm, when it comes to personal injury claims, we specifically focus on catastrophic compensation cases. Birth injury compensation claims is a part of this type of legal case, and it’s something that we can offer bespoke No Win, No Fee agreements for.
These types of serious negligence cases are best discussed with our team. We’re happy to offer free, no-obligation advice about your options for justice, and we can provide some general guidance in this article as well.
Claiming for birth negligence compensation claims
Birth negligence compensation claims can be complex. We need to establish that some part of the childbirth process has been subject to negligence and that there’s blame for what has happened. This isn’t easy given that childbirth comes with its own risks, but where a patient has been let down, there should always be an avenue for justice.
We appreciate that we can’t turn back the clock. What has happened has happened, and all we can do is make sure that a legal case can allow for a fair settlement that can help the victims. These kinds of cases are designed to allow a victim of negligence to be able to be awarded damages for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity they endure. Cases can also, importantly, allow for financial losses and expenses to be claimed for that can allow for a victim to receive the professional help and financial support they may need for the rest of their lives.
In cases where a victim is left with permanent problems, money for professional care, equipment, adaptations, and losses for being able to earn money is important.
How the No Win, No Fee works
For birth negligence compensation claims, if we think that there’s a good enough chance that we can succeed with a legal case, we may be able to offer to represent a victim on a No Win, No Fee basis.
In short, this means that we can write off our legal fees if the claim doesn’t succeed. This is, of course, subject to the terms and conditions of our agreement with the client. If a client was to bring a fraudulent case or cancel a claim part way through without good reason, the No Win, No Fee may not kick in (as examples). But, if we reach an unfortunate point where we cannot take a claim further, perhaps because we cannot prove negligence, we can write off our legal fees.
Why we do this is simple. In severe cases like this, it can be typical for the opponent to try and defend the claim. With pay-outs potentially in the millions, it can be worth the fight for a Defendant. As lawyers, we’re huge believers in access to justice, which is why we offer the arrangements that we do.
