Using a genuine specialist to investigate your Medical Negligence claim could make all the difference.

When Legal Aid was available to pursue all types of clinical negligence claims (also known as medical negligence claims) it was only available to firms with a proven specialism but now that Legal Aid has been narrowly restricted most claims are funded by insurance or using Conditional Fee Agreements (so-called "no win, no fee" agreements).

Wolferstans regularly recover compensation for clients who have previously been advised by personal injury solicitors that they didn’t have a claim; recovering £4.8 million for a client with Cerebral Palsy whose parents had been advised by his previous solicitor there was no claim and £2.8 million for a client who experienced a delay in diagnosis and treatment of cancer, despite her previous solicitors advising they were unable to pursue a claim due to insufficient evidence.

Bringing a clinical negligence claim requires a lawyer with specialist expertise that encompasses both legal and medical knowledge. If you do decide to bring a claim, using a firm of solicitors with a specialist clinical negligence team of accredited experts, rather than using a generalist personal injury lawyer, could make all the difference.Wolferstans have had a separate clinical negligence department for over 20 years, the members of which spend all their time exclusively investigating medical claims. This experience means that our success rate is very high; over 90% of the cases which we investigate and then pursue result in a payment of damages to our client.
