What is the limit for a medical negligence claim?

The general rule is that you have 3 years from the date of your injury or the date you realised you had suffered an injury because of a possible medical error or negligence.

However, there are exceptions to this rule that may apply:

  • If you are claiming on behalf of a child, you can claim at any time until the child is 18. When your child reaches 18, they can bring a claim, but the 3-year time limit will then apply, and they will have until they are 21.
  • There is no time limit for claiming on behalf of someone who does not have the mental capacity to make important decisions, e.g., if they have a serious brain injury or learning difficulties.
  • Different time limits may also apply for injuries or illnesses sustained outside the UK.

If you need to claim on behalf of the estate or dependants of someone who has tragically died due to medical negligence, you will normally have three years from their date of death.

Time can be a critical factor in medical negligence compensation claims, so it’s important to contact our specialist team as soon as possible for expert legal advice.

Do I have to go to court to make a medical negligence claim?

The majority of medical negligence cases can be settled without court proceedings. Keeping matters out of court means that our solicitors can settle claims quicker, and minimise stress.

In some scenarios a defendant or their insurer may refuse to accept liability for your illness or injury. In other cases, you may not agree with the compensation offered. Under these circumstances you may require court proceedings to pursue your medical negligence case.

If this happens, our team in Swindon can assist you throughout the entire process.
