Park Woodfine Heald Mellows are not members of any clinical negligence legal expenses insurance panels. You may feel therefore that our views are given with a degree of bias. Our aim, however, is just to point out the issues and our experience.
Things you need to check:
- Are they local? If they are not, are you happy dealing with the case over the telephone?
- Is one case worker assigned? If not, you can find your case being dealt with in a call centre type environment. Do you want to deal with your case in a series of questionnaires? Are you happy for a succession of different caseworkers to deal with the case?
- Is the case worker accredited?
In April 2009 Park Woodfine Heald Mellows successfully took a case rejected by a panel firm to Court. This case highlights the deficiency of the panel solicitor approach to problems. Click here for case details.
