Ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeries cover a wide range of medical procedures that need to be carried out correctly to ensure no injuries are sustained.

When receiving treatment from an NHS medical professional you trust them to maintain the level of care that is set by the healthcare sector to ensure that they are able to pick up and treat conditions before worsening. However sometimes there is a breach in this duty of care and victims require further extensive treatment because their condition was not picked up sooner. If you have suffered from an injury or your condition has declined due to medical negligence NHS our solicitors can give you the helping hand you need to make a claim.
In the UK you have a 3 year limitation period to bring forward a medical negligence claim. This means that from the date of injury or the date you became aware of the negligence you have 3 years to bring forward a claim. However there are some exceptions to this limitation period.
Children- If your child has suffered from medical negligence their limitation period doesn’t come into play until the age of 18. This gives them up until the age of 21 to make a claim for the injury they have suffered from due to medical negligence. However you can bring forward a claim on their behalf any time before they are 18.
Mental capacity- If someone has no mental capacity they have no limitation period for you to bring forward a claim on their behalf. This is so that if the victim recovers they are able to bring forward a claim themselves.
