Hillingdon Medical Negligence Solicitors – No Win No Fee Claims
On this page, you will find a full and detailed guide to choosing a good team of medical negligence solicitors that covers the Hillingdon area who can process a medical negligence claim for you. You should be able to extract all of the information you need, to learn why you might have a valid reason to make a claim, and how to choose a good legal firm to help you with this. But first, we need to address the question, what is medical negligence?
Negligence, in a medical environment, can take many forms. It can be caused by accident, error, omission or lack of diligence. Typical examples of negligence would include:
- Prescribing the wrong medication.
- Administering the wrong dose of a medication.
- Misdiagnosing an illness.
- Diagnosing an illness late.
- Causing an injury to a patient due to surgical error.
- Administering the wrong treatment.
- Incorrectly administering the right treatment.
- Allowing a patient to be harmed due to inadequate supervision.
As you can see, there are many ways that negligence can take place. However, not all harm to a patient is automatically seen as negligence. Some treatments, chemotherapy for example, cause harm to the patient, but as part of an overall treatment plan it can result in a positive effect on the patient’s health. So, how is negligence defined? Well, we could give a basic definition, thus:
Every medical professional has an inherent duty of care, never to harm any patient due to error, accident, omission or lack of care. When a medical professional fails in this duty of care in a way that could have been avoided, and causes harm to a patient, then clinical negligence could have occurred.
When a medical professional is accused of negligence, and the statement above is true, then a panel of doctors will evaluate the negligence complaint. They will decide whether the incident was negligent or not. If they decide that it was, you should have a pretty easy task of making a claim. But if they decide that it wasn’t, then your solicitor will need to present evidence to prove that it was.
As you can see, making a negligence claim is not a simple process. Using the help of a specialist accident and injury lawyer, such as Legal Expert, may help you to have the best chance of your claim being successful. If you would like to know more about how we can help you, then please speak to one of our team on the number at the end of this guide.
How To Choose The Right Solicitors For Your Medical Negligence Claim
If you need to make a negligence claim, then choosing the right medical negligence solicitors in the UK to process it for you is important. The more equipped your solicitor is at processing a claim, the higher your chance of winning the maximum level of compensation you deserve. However, finding a good legal team can be difficult, especially if you have no experience in dealing with solicitors. These three questions below are a good way to vet any legal firm you are considering, if they cannot answer yes to each of them, then they may not be the best choice.
- Have you won compensation successfully in a claim that is similar to my own in the last year?
- Can you manage my claim under an agreement whereby your fee is conditional on you being successful?
- Can you arrange additional local services for me, such as arranging a free medical examination in Hillingdon to support my claim?
Legal Expert can answer yes to each of these questions. We specialise in getting claimants the maximum amount of compensation possible for their type of claim. To learn how we do this, and to get your claim started, speak to one of our team on the number at the bottom of this page today.
Should I Use A Local Medical Negligence Solicitor?
Many people believe that there is some compelling legal reason, why they have to use a local firm of solicitors in Hillingdon to handle their claim. This is not the case; you are free to use any lawyer you wish, it doesn’t matter where they are located. Now that you know this, it is important to be aware of your options. Using a local solicitor might be easy, but you would be overlooking the advantages of using a specialist legal firm, that focuses on accident and injury claims.

Read Reviews And Give Reviews on Your Solicitor To Help Others
Another good way of cutting down on the effort needed to vet a long list of possible legal firms, is to read the reviews people have left after they have used their services. If you do find these kinds of online reviews, there are a few facts you will need to compare across all of the reviews, and these include:
- How old is the review, and is it still fresh enough to be relevant?
- What kind of claim does the review cover, and is it similar enough to your own to be relevant?
- Was the claim successful?
- Did the solicitor offer some form of Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)?
- How much, as a percentage of the compensation received, did the solicitor take as their fee?
- Was the reviewer’s experience a positive one, and do they recommend the legal firm?
Information such as this can be correlated across a number of reviews, and help you to trim down your shortlist. This is still going to take some time to do though.
