If you believe that you may have grounds for a medical or clinical negligence claim what should you do?
Well the first thing is to be sure you have a valid claim. It’s important to realise that a medical negligence claim is very different from a personal injury claim. In the case of medical negligence there are 2 key factors to consider.
To qualify as a negligence case you have to prove firstly that the medical practitioner was at fault, and secondly you have to prove that the fault caused you harm or loss. Another thing to consider is the time at which the harm or injury occurred. Medical negligence time constraints exist which mean that to be valid, any compensation claim must be started within 3 years of the harm or injury having occurred. It is also possible to start a medical negligence within 3 years of you discovering the negligence, this can be complex and if you are unsure you need to speak with a medical negligence solicitor.
This may sound off putting and even a little daunting, but you shouldn’t be put off if you think you may have a reason to claim. Most reputable solicitors and lawyers will provide an initial consultation for free, either in person or over the phone. This initial consultation will help to determine whether you have a valid claim or not.
