Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
How much are you seeking to claim?
You say you want to sue the hospital - but that would be for a monetary amount.
If you dont want money - what is your intended remedy at Court?
But the £100m isnt for you?
1. Do I have a case and if I do, what is my chance of winning this case?
I think if you can get an expert opinion saying they are negligent then yes, you have a case.2. Is there any thing I should be considering?
Only the above - you must show they have been negligent. This needs to be by way of expert evidence to show that they didnt take the actions of a reasonable hospital3. How much is this likely cost me? I have heard of no win on fee, does this mean that the person I choose to represent me may not put in as much effort compared to the person I pay?
You are looking around £15,000 to get it to Court. You may be able to get a no win no fee Solicitor.4. Is it too late to sue the hospital and the department?
You have 3 years to bring a claim under negligence.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes you must. The Court remedy is to compensate you.
It may not get to Court - it may settle outside of Court.
Does that clarify?
It really depends on all the evidence, prognosis, injury and how long to recover.
£100m seems a little high. I can tell you the highest award ever for life changing injury was £23m
