Never leave it too late to claim medical negligence
Make sure to never leave it too late to pursue your claim for medical negligence compensation as there can be a number of timeframes and limitation periods with which to comply with.
You may have heard before the general line of whether somebody has had an accident within the last three years or not. This is because, in accordance with the law of England and Wales, in most cases, you have three years from the date of an accident or incident in which to pursue a claim in many cases. This means you have up to three years to either settle a claim or issue court proceedings to protect your right to make a claim. If you fail to do so, you may be statute barred from claiming, and the defendant in the case may raise a defence using the limitation act to say that you are out of time to start your case. This may mean that you are unable to pursue the claim.
IMPORTANT: To understand the actual applicable limitation period for your claim, you need to seek proper legal advice now. Please do not rely on generic advice.
However, for medical negligence matters, there can be a number of limitation periods (or at least a number of starting dates) that could apply. Sometimes, medical negligence does not arise from a single incident, and it may be a case of prolonged treatment or the failure to treat you over a period of time. There are such things as the date of knowledge of negligence, or the constructive date of knowledge, where you ought to have known that something was wrong. This means that there can be greater risks if you leave it too late to pursue your claim for medical negligence. The best advice we always give is to simply start a claim and speak to a lawyer as soon as you can if you believe that you may have been the victim of negligence.
