What is medical negligence?

Medical negligence occurs when specialists, doctors, consultants, nurses and healthcare experts make serious mistakes that cause you harm and fail in their duty of care towards you.

  • GP surgery claims
  • birth injury claims

The above are just some examples of the type of claims that we will be able to assist you with.

Time limits for making a medical negligence claim

Usually, a medical negligence claim has to be commenced within three years of finding out your perceived negligent treatment, but some exceptions to this rule involve the following:

  • mental capacity – if a person lacks the capacity to make a the claim themselves there is no time limit for making a claim
  • children – the three year time limit commences on your child’s 18th birthday so the claim needs to be started before they reach the age of 21
