Legal aid for victims of medical negligence to be scrapped22nd September 2011
The charity Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) has begun a legal challenge over government proposals to stop legal aid for victims of medical negligence.
It is seeking a judicial review of the plans it calls “completely irrational” and fears that the most vulnerable people who are injured by negligent NHS treatment will be denied access to justice. However, the Ministry of Justice says victims will still have access to solicitors through “no win, no fee” agreements, which are currently being reformed.
