How do I know if I have a claim for compensation?

If you believe you may be suffering from a work related illness/industrial disease and believe that has been caused by the negligence of a former employer or a combination of employers, call us on 0844 499 9302 or email us at

Our friendly team of legal advisors will be able to tell you within a matter of minutes if you have the right to compensation.

Can I still claim if my accident was some time ago?

If you are 18 years old or over, you are entitled to make a claim provided you do so within 3 years of the date that you realised your treatment may have been negligent.

If you are under the age of 18 you have up until your 21st birthday in which to start your claim.

In certain circumstances someone may not have mental capacity, in which case, the 3 year limitation period may not apply.

We would advise that you call us as soon as possible on 0844 844 9866 or send us an email at so that we can advise you further on the relevant time period in your case.

What can I claim for?

If you win your case you will receive an award for the pain and suffering you have endured.

You will also be compensated for the losses you have incurred as a result of the negligent treatment such as loss of earnings, the cost of additional medical equipment and travel expenses.

How much will it cost me? How will my claim be funded?

If we believe that your claim has reasonable prospects of success we will enter into a Conditional Fee Agreement with you sometimes referred to as a No Win No Fee Agreement.

In some circumstances it may be necessary for you to fund the cost of obtaining your medical records. This will be approximately £50.00 for each set of records.

If your claim is successful we will claim the cost of the medical records back from the Defendant together with your legal costs.

How long will it take to receive my compensation?

This does vary very much depending on the circumstances, but typically between 12 and 24 months.

Will it affect my ongoing medical treatment?

It shouldn’t. You should still receive a competent standard of care from the medical professional treating you regardless of whether you are making a claim.

My relative has died as a result of the negligent treatment, can I bring a claim?

It is possible for relatives to bring a claim within 3 years of the date of their relative’s death.

We would advise that you call us as soon as possible on 0844 844 9866 or send us an email at so that we can advise you further.

Should I make a complaint first?

At the outset of your claim, and if you have not already done so, we will always advise you to make a formal complaint to the healthcare provider that provided the alleged negligent treatment.

Your complaint should be made in the form of a letter to the relevant hospital or the healthcare provider.

This letter should be kept relatively short but cover all of the following areas:

  • Where the treatment was provided?
  • When the treatment was provided?

What treatment was provided?

  • Why you think the treatment was negligent?
  • What injury you think the treatment caused?

Will I have to go to Court?

It is very unlikely that you will have to go to Court. Most cases are settled via telephone or written negotiation.

We will do everything we can to avoid unnecessary court appearances.
