Public Funding, also commonly known as 'Legal Aid', is available for some medical negligence claims and in exceptional circumstances might be available for other claims relating to physical injury.
“Public Funding" is operated by the Legal Aid Agency. You may be entitled to support if you have a good claim and if you satisfy the financial requirements. Children under 16 are assessed on their own financial means, not their parents’ means, and usually meet the financial criteria as a result.
We hold a contract for Public Funding in medical negligence claims and are therefore able to offer emergency Legal Representation in appropriate cases without delay.
