Do I need to pay to pursue a medical negligence claim?

Most medical negligence claims are settled under a ‘No Win No Fee’ agreement. This means you won’t have to pay for any legal costs, or costs associated with your claim, unless you are successful. If your claim is successful, the costs are paid from your compensation amount.

Tees takes many medical negligence claims on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis. Most of our claims are funded using a conditional fee agreement. With this arrangement, if you lose your case, it should not cost you a penny. If you win your case, we will recover most of the costs from the defendants.  There may be some deductions from your compensation for costs, but we guarantee that these will be no more than 25% of the total compensation recovered.

You will receive at least 75% of the compensation awarded. 

How will the legal fees for a medical negligence claim be paid for?

Most of our claims are funded using our funding package which means, if you lose your case, it should not cost you a penny.  The package includes a conditional fee agreement, a loan facility, and after the event insurance. If you win your case, we will recover most of the costs from the defendants and we will deduct a success fee and any unrecovered costs from your compensation. The costs that are deducted from your compensation will always be limited to a maximum of 25% of the total you receive, guaranteeing that you will receive at least 75% of the compensation awarded. 

Who can bring a medical negligence claim?

If you have been injured as a result of negligent medical treatment you can bring the claim yourself.

You can also bring a claim if you are the next of kin of someone; who has died due to negligent medical treatment, or who cannot take action themselves as they do not have capacity, this includes children.
