How long will my case take?

How long will my case take?

It is very difficult to exactly say how long a medical negligence claim will take from start to finish. It depends on the nature of your case, the complexity of your case, how long it takes to obtain all the evidence (medical records, witness statements, medical reports etc).

It also depends on the stance the Defendant takes. The NHS Trust’s will usually report to the NHSLA, the governing body of the NHS Trusts.  A lot will depend on the attitude of the NHSLA and or the NHS Trust.

If legal proceedings are needed, they must be issued at Court no later than 3 years after the date of your injury or 3 years from the date that you knew that the treatment/care you received was negligent. This may happen at a later date, i.e. when you are seen by another specialist, who then diagnoses your injury and explains the cause of the injury to you and explains that it was related to previous medical care that you received.

How we can help

We can provide advice on any tertiary advice and assistance that you may require during the life of your claim. If the Defendant admits liability for your injury we can apply for an interim payment of damages on your behalf to assist in speeding up the litigation process.
