In short, Medical Negligence is when medical professionals make mistakes or fail in their duty of care to you, leading to injury or making an existing condition worse.
It is much better if you contact us about your claim as soon as possible after the negligence has occurred or when you discover the negligence. This gives us the opportunity to begin working on your claim while the details are still fresh in your mind and also in the minds of the defendant.
You usually need to start a medical negligence claim within three years of finding out that you have received negligent treatment (you may not realise straight away but only after your injury or illness becomes worse).
There are exceptions to this rule:
— Children – in medical negligence claims involving a child the three year time limit comes into effect on their 18th birthday, so a claim needs to be started before they turn 21.
— Mental Capacity – if a person lacks the legal capacity to make a claim themselves, there is no time limit for making a claim.
We fund most medical negligence claims by way of a No Win No Fee agreement. This means you will not have to pay anything at the beginning of your claim and, in the vast majority of cases, will only pay towards your legal costs.
