Why It’s Important to Speak to a Medical Negligence Solicitor
There’s a series of steps that are involved when making a medical negligence claim and this is why it’s often advised to contact a medical negligence solicitor to assist and support you during your claim. Medical law is arguably a complex area of law and the fact that a medical report will report whether your injuries or illness were sustained negligently makes it sometimes difficult to prove negligence occurred. Choosing a medical negligence solicitor can bring clarity to your case as well as prepare a structured plan. This can reduce the stress of your case and ensures that you have full control of your case. Even making a medical negligence claim can be difficult for some individuals, as they may feel alienated or distrusting of the medical system or practitioner. Choosing one of our medical negligence solicitors makes sure that you are fully supported and advised while making your claim.
Medical Negligence Claims Examined
You may feel that you want to make a medical negligence claim against a medical practitioner that has caused an injury or illness due to negligence. This could be in the form of injury caused as a result of surgery or a failure to diagnose injuries or illness correctly. Dental treatments may have also been carried out incorrectly or your medical practitioner may have delayed a cancer diagnosis. Your injuries may be due to mistakes at a hospital or by a GP and should you suffer from medical negligence then understandably, you may want to make a claim for compensation. You only have 3 years to issue Court Proceedings from the date in which you first knew that you suffered an injury caused by the fault of your medical practitioner. It’s also important to note that this also includes when you could be reasonably expected to know that you have suffered an injury caused by the fault of your medical practitioner. This could be from the time that the mistake occurred or sometime later if you did not know that you had been injured as a result of the mistake. Usually, you are unable to pursue your claim further if Court Proceedings are not issued within 3 years however this can be waived if there’s a valid reason as to why a claim was not pursued sooner. It’s therefore important to pursue your claim if you have decided to make a claim and we can help you with this.
