What are the Time Restrictions for a Medical Negligence Claim?

October 13, 2022

There are some time restrictions when it comes to filing a claim for medical negligence against a healthcare professional. In most cases, you have three years to make a claim, either from the date the negligent care took place or from the date you first realised negligent care was the reason behind an illness or injury. However, if you are making a claim for someone who is a minor or who does not have the mental capacity to make a claim on his or her own, the three-year restriction may not apply. No matter which circumstances you fall under, it is critical that you contact our team of solicitors as soon as you are able. Because a medical negligence case requires a personal account of what took place, the fresher your memory, the better. The sooner you contact us, the quicker we can begin building your case.
