    Time Limits for Medical Negligence Claims in Manchester

    According to the Limitation Act of 1980, you would normally have three years from the date of the negligent treatment or from the date you became aware of it to make a claim.

    However, in certain cases like where it involves a child, the child can have up to his or her 21st birthday to make a claim. Additionally, the 3 year time limit is also relaxed in cases where the victim is mentally incapacitated and unable to make the claims on their own.
