Medical Negligence Claims

You should always feel like you are in safe hands when dealing with your health care provider. However, there are certain cases when the standard of treatment has fallen below the accepted standard of practice, causing injuries to the patient, or even death. Acceptable standards vary from country to country and medical professionals will often purchase professional liability insurance to protect themselves against any legal costs involved with medical negligence.

If you feel that you or a family member have suffered as a result of clinical negligence, contact our solicitors today. Our medical negligence solicitors will offer free expert advice and are able to let you know if you have a valid claim. Contact 0161 763 8260 today, or alternatively fill in our online callback form and we will call you back.

Medical Negligence Statistics

  • In the UK, over 8,000 people have died as a result of medical negligence in the past 13 years.
  • Between 15,000 and 19,000 cases are started against doctors every year in the US.

Medical Negligence Time Limits

If you would like to make a medical negligence claim, you must report the claim within 3 years of suffering the injury. However, there are exceptions to the rule:

  • If the victim was under the age of 18 when the medical negligence took place, there is no time limit.
  • If the claimant is suffering from a mental illness when the injury took place, the time limit will commence when they have made a recovery.
  • If the court makes a decision – they may decide to give the claimant more time based on their circumstances.
