How we can help you with making a medical negligence claim in Caerphilly
Starting a medical negligence compensation claim in Caerphilly
To start, we'll carefully examine the details of the incident and assess how a healthcare professional or institution may have fallen short in their duty of care.
Our medical negligence specialists will do this in the first consultation and we will use the information you provide to determine the eligibility of your medical negligence compensation claim.
In this initial meeting, our medical negligence solicitors in Caerphilly will walk you through the claims process and provide all the information you need to make an informed decision about how you want to move forward.
No win, no fee funding for medical negligence claims in Caerphilly
For medical negligence cases in Caerphilly, we adopt a "no win, no fee" approach, also called conditional fee agreements.
This funding method removes any financial risk for you. You will only be charged legal fees if we successfully secure compensation on your behalf. If, for any reason, the claim is unsuccessful, you won't owe us anything.
In a successful medical negligence claim, the defendant may potentially cover the legal costs. This ensures a straightforward and risk-free financial arrangement throughout the process.
Proving medical neglect or negligence
To claim medical negligence compensation, you must clearly demonstrate that the duty of care towards you was breached, and the mistake was avoidable.
This proof relies on various types of evidence, such as medical records, risk assessments, examinations, testimonies from independent medical experts, and witness accounts.
Our medical negligence solicitors in Caerphilly will gather and organise all the necessary evidence to pursue your case.
We will then present the case on your behalf with the aim of securing the compensation you deserve.
Valuing a medical negligence claim in Caerphilly
The amount of compensation you can receive for a medical negligence claim varies based on factors like the severity of injuries and financial losses.
Compensation is typically used to cover medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, and additional costs resulting from the negligence. It may also address lost earnings during recovery.
The aim is to help our clients rebuild their lives by providing financial support for ongoing needs, modifying living spaces for accessibility, and ensuring necessary assistance.
Compensation serves as a vital resource for our clients to regain a sense of normalcy and enhance their quality of life after experiencing medical negligence.
Time limits for medical negligence claims in Caerphilly
In the UK, the time limit for filing a medical negligence claim is generally three years from the date of the incident or when the victim becomes aware of the negligence.
Exceptions to this rule include cases involving minors, where the three-year limit starts when they turn 18, ensuring they have plenty of time to claim.
For individuals lacking mental capacity, there is no strict time limit until they regain capacity.
Courts may consider extending the three-year deadline if there are valid reasons for a delay.
If you think you may have a medical negligence claim, it's crucial to seek legal advice promptly, as exceeding the time limit might impact your ability to make a claim.

Managing medical negligence claim compensation
