Frequently asked questions

Here are some questions we often get asked. If you need any more information, just give us a call and we will be happy to answer your queries.

Clinical or medical negligence is when a person receives treatment or care from a healthcare profession that has fallen below the standard expected. If the care or service provided has in some way caused the person to experience ill health as a direct result, then they may be able to pursue a claim for medical negligence.

There are quite strict rules concerning the time limits to claim compensation but in most cases a solicitor will need to be instructed and paperwork will have to be filed within three years of the incident happening.

There should be absolutely no impact on your medical treatment or your relationship with the doctors and nurses caring for you. None of the medical clinicians should try to talk to you about the claim.

Possibly. After we have reviewed your medical records, if we still believe you have a case, we will instruct a medical expert. In medical negligence cases, the first reports will not require you to see an expert and they will form a view following receipt of your medical notes and records.
Before issuing legal proceedings we will send you to a medical expert for examination. The type of expert will depend on the nature of your injuries.
