What is Medical Negligence?
Negligence is the breach of a legal duty of care owed to one person by another which results in damage being caused to that person. Clinical negligence (often called medical negligence) is concerned with claims against doctors and other healthcare professionals and their employers.
How long do I have to make my claim?
Precise time limits for starting medical negligence claims are laid out in legislation, albeit with a few exceptions being allowed. In simple terms, you have three years in which to make a claim, counted from the date upon which you first became aware that you had suffered injury as a result of medical negligence.
What is a delay in treatment?
A delay in treatment is when a patient does not get a treatment – whether it be a medication, lab test, physical therapy treatment, or any kind of treatment – that had been ordered for them in the time frame in which it was supposed to be delivered.
