The medical negligence claims process is often very complex and suing a hospital for negligent treatment may feel daunting. You need to prove that the injury or illness you suffered was as a direct result of the negligent treatment you received. As a result, it is important that you keep records of your medical appointments as well as other documents relevant to your care. There is a general three-year time limit for medical negligence claims in the UK; this time limit begins from the date of the hospital negligence or the date you became aware your injury was a result of negligent treatment.
