Our experience spreads across a wide range of medical negligence claims including:
- Misdiagnosis: Misdiagnosis happens when a healthcare professional wrongly diagnoses a patient’s condition. This can lead a patient to a completely wrong treatment path, and may cause you harm, while your original condition worsens. Misdiagnosis can also cost you valuable recovery time for your original condition.
- Surgical Error: A medical professional may leave a foreign object inside the body of a patient during surgery. A wrong organ may also be operated on or an instrument may be mishandled. Whatever the case, Surgical Error can have devastating consequences.
- Prescription Errors: If a healthcare provider administers the wrong medicine, prescribes the wrong dosage or administers too much medicine there can be life-changing consequences.
- Care Home Abuse: Care home residents are often vulnerable, so any mistakes in their care can have life-changing outcomes.
TIME LIMITS FOR MAKING A MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CLAIM
Usually, claimants have three years to start their claim. This three-year period begins from the date of the negligence or the date they became aware that their injury was a result of medical negligence. Exceptions to this time limit include cases involving children and those who lack mental capacity to make independent decisions.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of doctor negligence, contact us as soon as possible. This will allow our solicitors to start handling your case while its details are still fresh in your mind.
