They are always keen to put vulnerable clients and their needs first and to ensure that everything possible is done to smooth the process for them’.

Work highlights:

Secured a £1.1m settlement negotiated at mediation for maternal injury claim notwithstanding initial denial of liability and disputed extent of injury suffered.

Secured a £1.3m settlement achieved in complex spinal injury claim despite liability being disputed and defendant valuing claim at only £300,000.

Achieved settlement of a stroke case involving highly complex medical evidence from over 20 experts. Liability remained strongly defended and the cause and nature of the injury robustly disputed but compensation of £325,000 was achieved.

Lanyon Bowdler Clinical Negligence Team win 'Team of the Year' In Personal Injury Awards 2018

Lanyon Bowdler won the Clinical Negligence Team of the Year title at the Eclipse Proclaim Personal Injury Awards in Manchester, beating off competition from across the UK.

Kay Kelly, former head and now consultant for the team, said: “This is absolutely wonderful news and is a fitting tribute to the expertise and dedication of our clinical negligence lawyers.

“Clinical negligence is a particularly sensitive area of law which makes a tremendous difference to people’s lives. A successful claim can be vital for the person’s recovery and future quality of life, so to be recognised as being the best team in the country for our work means a great deal.”

The team is both proud and delighted to have won this award.

No win no fee medical negligence solicitors

The majority of the medical negligence cases we handle are done so on a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). This means that there is no financial risk to you.  Full details will be provided to you during your first appointment.

Should your medical negligence case not be successful, your solicitor will cover all the costs and expenses as the case proceeds. There are no upfront costs for you to be concerned about.

This is a very low-risk proposition for people who believe that they may have been wrongfully injured by a healthcare professional and wish to pursue legal action, with the peace of mind of being financially protected if they are unsuccessful.  Medical negligence cases can take a long time to resolve and incur significant legal expenses in that time.  Conditional fee agreements are there to protect the claimant financially and ensure that funding is not the reason a genuine legal case cannot be brought to the right conclusion.

If you have been injured as a result of medical negligence, it is important to speak to a specialist solicitor. They will be able to advise you on whether you are eligible to pursue  a No Win No Fee medical negligence claim and will help you through the process every step of the way.

Your Medical Negligence questions answered

How can medical negligence lawyers help?

If you have been injured as a result of medical negligence, you may be able to seek a compensation. To find out if you are eligible talk to one of our No Win No Fee Medical Negligence Solicitors today.

Lanyon Bowdler is a leading law firm in flexible pricing options, and we offer conditional funding arrangements (known as no win-no fee) and public funding agreements, previously Legal Aid.

Your lawyer will help you gather the evidence needed to support your case and will negotiate with the other party (or parties) involved in order to secure the best possible outcome for you.

An alleged case of medical negligence can take time to resolve, so it is important to have patience and allow your lawyer the time they need to build a strong case on your behalf.

The specialist team includes one in-house doctor, so we bring an excellent medical understanding to each case. Lanyon Bowdler is a member of the personal injury solicitors list produced by Headway – the Brain Injury Association – so you can be assured we have considerable expertise in cases involving brain injury.

We are also included on the 2020 approved solicitors list for the Spinal Injury Association and are on the Law Society’s Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury Solicitors Panel. We also have a member of the team recognised by AvMA.

Our Clinical Negligence Solicitors team has been awarded the Specialist Quality Mark, awarded by the Legal Aid Agency, and holds a contract to provide services which are publicly funded (previously known as Legal Aid). This prestigious appointment is a testament to the level of expertise and experience in the team.

The fundamental aim of our work is to get those who have been impacted by medical negligence the answers they need and increase patient safety to prevent injuries from happening to others.

We take great pride in our compassionate and individualised approach; we always put our clients first. If you would like to discuss your case of medical negligence, please contact a member of our team.

What is required for a successful claim?

When you start the compensation process with Lanyon Bowdler, a member of our team will ask you to gather some supporting evidence for your case.

We will explain what supporting evidence you may need and help you to collect it.  Occasionally you may need to obtain some things yourself, for example, any photographs, letters, receipts, or other records showing the losses you have suffered, and the details of the people involved.

It is usually possible for our team to gather most of the evidence on your behalf.

Supporting evidence will assist your Medical Negligence Solicitor to prove the injuries, pain and suffering you have experienced were due to the negligent care you received, where the responsibility for that lies and that the compensation is fair.

How can I seek compensation for medical negligence?

If you have been injured as a result of medical negligence, you may be eligible for compensation.

To be successful, your case must meet three criteria:

  1. You must have suffered an injury or illness as a result of the negligence of a medical professional.
  2. The injury or illness must have had a significant impact on your life.
  3. You must have sought legal advice and started court proceedings within three years of discovering that you had been injured as a result of negligence (or five years if the negligent act was committed outside of the UK).

Getting compensated for medical negligence compensation can seem daunting, but our team of experts are here to help guide you through every step of the process. We will work tirelessly to secure the best possible outcome for you and will always keep you updated on progress.

At Lanyon Bowdler, we have a team of friendly, compassionate, Medical Solicitors who are hugely experienced at talking to people and their families who are facing these challenging issues.

New Policy can help more Families Access Justice

Lanyon Bowdler is giving more families access to justice for maternity care failings after developing a new way for clients to cover their costs.

We have teamed up with a major insurance group to provide legal costs protection for cases which date back many years and might otherwise be considered too high a risk to pursue.

As one of the leading firms working on claims related to the Shrewsbury and Telford maternity scandal, being able to support clients with their costs is vital.

Clients come to us at one of the worst times in their lives, and it’s essential they have the peace of mind that their legal fees are covered.

Without the right kind of insurance, a lot of our clients simply would not be able to access the justice they are entitled to.

Many cases arising from the Ockenden Review date back as far as the 1980s, which makes them inherently higher risk due to the passage of time and potential evidence issues.

We approached ARAG insurance group to see what they could do to help support these cases, which are often funded on a no-win-no-fee basis.

We have worked together to create a bespoke policy for our clients, which minimises what the client needs to pay, enabling them to make a claim which would otherwise be considered too much of a risk – and crucially helping them to retain as much of their damages as possible.

Further work has been done by our Medical Negligence Team to develop a collaborative approach with the NHS in Shropshire to work through clinical negligence claims as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The team have developed a pilot programme with NHS Resolution and their panel solicitors to support families impacted by the Shrewsbury and Telford maternity scandal.

For cases with an estimated value of up to £250,000, we work collaboratively with NHS Resolution, working together to reach a satisfactory outcome.

These claims are extremely distressing for everyone involved, so it’s important to minimise any further stress or anxiety as we work towards getting justice for our clients.
