If you or a loved one feel that you have suffered a brain injury as a result of treatment received by a medical professional, our specialist clinical negligence solicitors may be able to assist you in bringing a clinical negligence claim.
Duncan Lewis Solicitors specialise in:
There are strict time limits for pursuing a claim for clinical negligence. Usually claims must be started within three years of the date of the incident. In some cases, it may run from the 'date of knowledge' this maybe when you realised your injury was as a result of negligent treatment.
Clinical negligence claims are often very complex, particularly those relating to brain injuries, and can take a number of years to settle. We will do all that we can to ensure your claim is dealt with efficiently and to make sure you are provided with frequent updates.
If we are able to assist you with a clinical negligence claim we will usually offer to act for you under a 'No-win No Fee' agreement. In some cases however, you may have existing legal expense insurance and we would therefore consider acting under the terms of your insurance policy. If you do not have such policy, we would recommend taking out a separate policy known as ‘After the Event’ insurance. This policy would help cover any disbursements we incur in your claim. Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your funding options.
