Frequently Asked Questions

How is medical negligence defined?

Medical negligence is described as a breach in a medical or healthcare professional’s of duty of care. In other words; when the standard of care falls below that which is expected of a competent practitioner.

Who can I bring a medical negligence claim against?

You can bring a compensation claim against private hospitals, cosmetic clinics, the NHS, dentists, GPs, nurses and other providers of medical treatment and care.

How long will it take?

Every case is unique so it’s difficult to give a precise time frame as it depends on a number of factors. If liability is admitted during our investigation into the cause of your injury, the case will be settled significantly quicker than if it’s disputed. Another factor that can speed up a claim is if you return any documentation we send you as soon as possible and respond quickly to any questions we may have.

The extent of your injury also has a huge bearing on your case. Generally, the more serious the injury and the long-term implications of it, the longer it may take to fully calculate your claim’s value. We’re also bound by Civil Procedure rules, which allow the defendant’s solicitors time to investigate the circumstances around your injury before they have to respond to us.

How long do I have to make a claim?

Generally, you can make a claim for compensation up to three years from the date of your injury. This is what we call the limitation period. There are, however, some circumstances where the limitation period is two years. To find out more, call us.
