Nov21240 An accident can have serious consequences for the individual such as injuries, property damage, high cost medical bills, and a loss of income due to an inability to work for a period of time. This is when compensation is necessary to cover physical, psychological and/or financial losses. RGA exists to advise the client on all stages of the claims process and provide them with practical and clear advice in plain English, and of course, to gain results. RGA also understands the serious and permanent consequences of personal injuries (birth injuries, misdiagnosis, hospital negligence, surgical mistakes, dental negligence, cosmetic and plastic surgery errors) caused by negligent medical care. Medical professionals have a responsibility to provide patients with a minimum standard of care. Those who have suffered personal injuries as a result of negligent medical care may be entitled to compensation for their physical, psychological and/or financial losses. RGA’s experienced team of medical negligence solicitors understand the impact of these injuries on people and their families, so its goal is to provide a professional and supportive service that helps them get the compensation they are entitled to by law. The firm can also provide services regarding the employment aspect of merges and acquisitions, covering due diligence reviews, negotiation and drafting of warranties and indemnities, and advising on all legal issues relating to the Transfer of Undertaking Regulations. Additionally, RGA firmly believes in the importance of providing a portion of its time and its experience to helping individuals, along with charities and other non-profit organisations who would otherwise not be in the position to obtain legal services, particularly in the area of employment law. Currently, RGA provides pro bono services as part of the Public Interest Law Alliance which is an initiative of the Free Legal Aid Centres.

Indeed, it’s easy to see what makes RGA such an award-winning, reputable firm, with its range of tailored services and dedication to achieving results for each client. It success is especially reflected through the highly positive response from its clients, including several positive feedbacks, such as, “I have used Richard Grogan & Associates for professional advice with respect to forthcoming legislation.
