For a claim to be successful you need the evidence to prove:

- That the negligent act has resulted in a period of suffering for yourself due to a condition worsening or an injury being sustained.
How Long Will My Medical Negligence Claims Take?
There is no set time-frame when bringing forward a medical negligence claim in Nottingham. This is due to the fact that all cases are different and can sometimes require different approaches to reach successful outcomes. If there is an admission of fault from the hospital or GP surgery then your case could be concluded within a matter of Motherhowever some more complicated cases could take up to 3 year dispensing on the nature of the injury.
In the UK victims of medical negligence have a 3 year limitation period to bring forward. This period begins either when the negligence has occurred or from the date the victim is reasonably aware there may have been negligence to bring forward a compensation claim. However there are some exceptions to this 3 year limitation periods:
- Children: If your child is under the age of 18 and they have suffered from an injury due to medical negligence they could be entitled to make compensation through a claim with one of our Medical Negligence Lawyers in Nottingham. It will be required that either a Parent or Guardian (who is over the age of 18) will bring forward a claim for compensation on their behalf. The 3 year limitation period for someone under the age of 18 comes into effect on their 18th birthday essentially allowing a claim to be brought forward until their 21st birthday.
- Mental capacity: If a family member has limited to no mental capacity there is no time period for you to make a claim on their behalf. This will apply for someone who has usually sustained some form of brain damage and requires day-to-day care from a family member of social workers. This is common in Cerebral Palsy and Stroke Misdiagnosis Claims.
- For anyone over the age of 18 there is a 3 year limitation period. Now this 3 year period does not always begin when the negligence occurs but in fact begins when the victim of the negligence is reasonably aware that negligence may have occurred.
