No win no fee
One of the biggest worries that people have when they first speak to us about their medical negligence claim, is how they are going to pay for the legal fees? This is very understandable as claims can take three years or more to complete and they can be very expensive. There can be the cost of medical expert reports and barrister’s and court fees even before you factor in your solicitor’s time. This is why at Graystons we offer conditional fee arrangements (CFAs) to clients that we feel have a potential claim that needs investigation. These are also known as ‘no win no fee’ arrangements.
After we first talk to you if we feel there may be grounds to investigate your claim, as long as you are honest with us, there would be nothing to pay if you were unsuccessful. If you were however successful and we manage to gain compensation for you, there would be a maximum deduction of 25% from your damages as a success fee for Graystons. This success fee enables Graystons to fund the work on cases that do not win, therefore allowing us to offer the ‘no win no fee’ option to all our potential clients that we feel may have a claim.
Hopefully this offers some reassurance that at Graystons if we feel that there are grounds to investigate a clinical negligence claim you will not be prevented from getting access to legal help and support due to the cost of pursuing that claim.
