Medical Negligence cases are generally fought hard by the Medical Insurance Companies. They are nearly always litigated in Court. This makes them amongst the most expensive cases to maintain. However if you are ultimately successful in your claim the majority of your legal costs may be paid by the Medical Insurer. This is subject to the value of the claim being over $100,000.00 as the recoverable legal costs in claims less than this are restricted. You should discuss the issue of costs with your lawyer.
At McKay Compensation Lawyers, medical negligence claims are accepted on a “No Win No Fee” basis. However if you commence proceedings in Court and you do not succeed in establishing negligence, you may have a cost order awarded against you. This would be disastrous.
