No. When choosing a Medical Negligence Solicitor to help you claim compensation, you don’t need to use a firm that’s local to you.

You might think that if you instruct a law firm that isn’t local, then this will affect how quickly your case can progress and cause unnecessary delays. But this shouldn’t be the case as most of your medical negligence claim can be dealt with remotely.

Simpson Millar has offices across England and Wales and we offer a free claims assessment. So if you have concerns about the medical treatment you or a loved one has received, contact our specialist Medical Negligence Solicitors and we’ll be happy to help you.

We can let you know straight away if you have a good chance of making a successful claim. We can also discuss different funding options with you, such as No Win, No Fee - ask us for details

Why Choose Simpson Millar?

At Simpson Millar, we are a national law firm with offices in both England and Wales. So we can help anyone in England and Wales, regardless of where they live or how far away they are from our offices.

Also, you don’t need to actually visit one of our offices in order for us to handle your claim. That’s because we can speak with you by phone and communicate with you remotely using email and technology such as Skype, Zoom and Microsoft Teams. So we can easily keep in touch with you day to day, and you can speak to us from the comfort of your own home.

This can make a big difference at what can be a difficult time for you. Dealing with the consequences of a medical error can be very distressing, so we want to do everything we can to make the medical negligence claim process as stress-free as possible.

Taking the need to travel out of the picture is just one way to make this happen.

How Can Documents be Handled?

Any documents that need to be signed by you as part of a medical negligence claim can be dealt with through our online signature system. If this isn’t possible, they can be posted and returned by Royal Mail secure delivery.

Regardless of how close you live to the Solicitor’s office, this would likely be the way in which any paperwork would be signed in any event.

What About Court Hearings?

Given the current Covid-19 pandemic, most Court hearings are currently being held remotely, and it’s likely to stay this way for at least the next few months while restrictions are in place.

If you were required to attend Court, we would make sure that your case was dealt with by a Court near you so that you don’t have to travel far, and we would travel to your local Court regardless of how far it is from our offices.

We’d also make sure that prior to any hearing, adequate time is provided to meet with you and discuss the case.

We should stress though that most medical negligence claims don’t get this far, and in the vast majority of cases, we’re able to negotiate a fair settlement for our clients out of Court, so this is unlikely to be something you need to worry about.
