Clinical Negligence

Hello I'm Leonie Millard and part of the clinical negligence team here at Forbes Solicitors. Here, we recognise that:

  1. Each case is different and offers a strong team experienced in dealing with cases against GPs, hospitals, dentists and private and public medical providers.
  2. We're not new to this area of law and have gained success through knowledge and expertise, winning multi million pound cases for our clients and safeguarding their past and future needs and looking after some of them long term.
  3. Medical negligence can be a stressful and life changing event for some people. We will do our best to breakdown the issues and explain the process.
  4. There are a range of funding methods available, including a "No Win No Pay" option.

If you'd like to make a claim for compensation, please either contact us via the enquiry form on the website or telephone us today.

If you have reason to believe you have suffered an injury due to clinical negligence, contact the team at Forbes solicitors today on freephone 0800 037 4625 and get your no win, no fee clinical negligence compensation claim started today.

One of the most common questions we get asked at Forbes is "How do I pay for my clinical negligence compensation claim?". There are a number of possible options.

No Win No Fee

Many of our clinical negligence compensation claims undertaken by our specialists can be handled on a no win, no fee basis, which means when we decide to take on a claim, we do so believing we will win.

A no win, no fee agreement is also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement or CFA and is a better option for those who may not be able to afford legal fees. We will always discuss the best option for you and will collect as much evidence as possible before pursuing a claim to ensure there is a high probability of success.

If you win your claim the other side will pay for legal costs. We may take a small percentage from your compensation to cover the risk of losing. This will all be explained to you during our initial consultations so you are made aware of the costs involved and any of the risks.

Legal Aid

Forbes Solicitors can also offer representation via Legal Aid for serious birth injury cases. We are one of only a few law firms in the North of England with a Legal Aid Agency Clinical Negligence Franchise. This award allows only an elite number of highly qualified solicitors to apply for Legal Service Commission Funding (formerly Legal Aid) to handle clinical negligence cases.

Private services

In some circumstances your compensation claim may not be suitable for a no win, no fee basis. In this case we can discuss our charges which will based on an hourly rate.

As always there are no hidden costs when you instruct us to pursue a claim and your best interests are at the heart of everything we do.

To find out if you are able to make a clinical negligence claim with Forbes contact us today on freephone 0800 037 4625 or call in to any of our branches across the UK for a face to face consultation.

We have expert Solicitors at each of our offices based in Accrington, Blackburn, Chorley and Preston ready to help you with your clinical negligence claim.
