How can a personal injury lawyer help me with my medical negligence claim?

With the help of medical negligence lawyers you can claim damages for things such as pain and suffering, past and future treatment costs, past and future loss of wages, and domestic care or assistance.

How quickly can I get compensated with a personal injury lawyer?
Some personal injury claims can be resolved within 6 months, others may take years. Each situation is different and the length of the process depends on a number of factors such as whether the insurer is willing to accept liability and how long it takes for your injury to stabilise.
Our experienced personal injury lawyers in Newcastle will discuss these factors with you during your first free consultation. They will talk you through the various scenarios and possibilities and prepare you for the journey ahead. While many things can affect the speed of the process once the claim is underway, they will be able to give you an estimate as to what you should expect based on your specific situation.
What can I expect from my consultation with a personal injury lawyer in Newcastle?
During the free consultation with our personal injury lawyers in Newcastle, you will have the opportunity to discuss your injury and the incident that caused it. Our lawyers will ask you a series of questions to get a better idea of what happened and how it happened. They will ask you for specific details regarding your injuries as well as any treatment you’ve had so far. They may also ask for further details about the incident itself such as whether or not there were witnesses or photographs taken.
Once our lawyers feel that they have enough information, they will inform you whether or not you have a case for compensation. Then, you will have the opportunity to ask questions. If they don’t believe you have a case, you may ask them to provide an explanation as to why. If they do believe you have a case, you may have some questions about the process.
The free consultation is not an exam and there are no obligations, so there’s no need to be nervous. It is, however, a good idea to go in prepared. Gather whatever information you have about the incident, the injury and the treatment you’ve received so far and take it with you. It might also be helpful to write down any questions you have ahead of time so that you don’t forget on the day.
If you’re not sure what kind of information you need to provide at the free consultation, feel free to give our office a call for some guidance.
Do I need a lawyer to get compensated?
If you’ve been injured and want to claim compensation, it’s a good idea to partner with a lawyer who specialises in this area. You can submit the claim without a lawyer but unless you have thorough knowledge and extensive experience practising law, you will be significantly decreasing your chances of success.
Our compensation lawyers in Newcastle work on a no win no fee basis, so there’s really nothing to lose by using a personal injury lawyer. Yes, a lawyer will charge a fee after you win, but without a lawyer you may not win at all.
The other huge upside to using a personal injury lawyer is the peace of mind. With a professional on side to handle the paperwork and the negotiations, you can relax and focus on your recovery.
