Frequently Asked Questions

Medical negligence is a broad term that covers many areas of medicine and care. GPs, nurses, doctors, and surgeons can all be medically negligent at various stages of the healthcare system, from initial diagnosis through to surgery. If you think that a medical professional has lapsed in their duty of care to you, resulting in injury or worsened condition, get in touch to find out if you can claim.

The amount of time it will take to settle a medical negligence claim from start to end depends on a great number of factors, from the complexity of the case to the cooperation of the defendant party. However, no matter how long it takes, we will stick with your case the whole time.

Medical negligence can take many forms, from misdiagnosis at a GP that results in your condition worsening to surgical mistakes that cause direct injury or exacerbation of your existing injury. Along with damages for injuries, some medical negligence claims can also provide compensation for:

  • Expenses incurred as a result of injury
  • Resultant loss of earnings
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Home or vehicle adaptation costs
  • Ongoing care or support costs

Generally, you only have three years from the instance of medical or clinical negligence (or, alternatively, from when you discovered the negligence) to file your claim. However, there are usually exceptions made for children and people who are unable to make a claim for themselves.
