Before we carry on, let’s look at what medical negligence is. Medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence or medical malpractice is when you the patient receive unsatisfactory care from a medical practitioner, such as a doctor, surgeon, nurse, paramedic or dentist. This unsatisfactory care takes the form of a negligent action or inaction, causing an avoidable accident which causes harm to the patient. This could include making you ill, injuring you, or worsening a medical condition that you already suffer from (for example, leaving a treatable condition undiagnosed, so it worsens and causes more harm over time). If you have experienced medical negligence at the hands of a healthcare professional in Dewsbury or elsewhere, you may be entitled to make a medical negligence claim for compensation. Legal Expert can provide you with the right medical negligence solicitor to represent you in your claim for NHS accident compensation, or private healthcare malpractice compensation.
How does the process of claiming compensation for medical negligence work? First of all your solicitor will reach out to the healthcare provider (the Defendant) that enacted the medical negligence to start discussing your claim. We hope that they will admit their liability early on in the process, as this will allow us to secure your compensation more quickly. How long do medical negligence claims usually take to enact? If the Defendant does not dispute their liability, or the case is dealing with a less serious accident the claim may only take a few months. If the case is more complex or the Defendant disputes their liability then, unfortunately, it may be years until a settlement is reached. Another thing to consider is that there is a compensation claim time limit in England and Wales. This means that in most cases you the Claimant have 3 years to make your compensation claim, from the time that the medical negligence took place, or the time that you realised that you had been harmed.
Do compensation claim time limits apply? All personal injury compensation claims carried out in England and Wales are subject to a three-year time limit. In most cases, the compensation claim has been launched within three-years of the accident or injury happening. If the resulting injury or illness is not discovered until years later this will be taken as the start of the claims period. There are further exceptions to this time limit. Claims for Injury and illness suffered by a child can be brought any time before the child’s 18th birthday. At this point, the three-year period kick’s in and they have till their 21st birthday to make the claim. The length of time it will take to complete the claim can vary substantially. In simpler cases where the injury was not as serious and the defendant does not dispute their liability, the claim may only take a few months. In highly complex cases or those where the defendant disputes their liability, a claim might take the full three years to resolve.
