Clinical Negligence Claims

Clinical Negligence Claims

Patients who have received a substandard level of medical care which has caused or worsened an illness or injury may be entitled to pursue clinical negligence claims.

Medical experts have a duty of care towards their patients. If they breach this obligation and the treatment they provide falls below par, this can cause unnecessary pain and suffering to those in their care. Roberts Jackson Solicitors can provide expert legal guidance to those injured by clinical negligence, making sure that they are fully compensated for any medical and financial hardship caused.

Clinical negligence the process

We understand at Roberts Jackson that clinical negligence is an extremely severe and personal issue for all our clients.

Clinical negligence time limits

There is a fixed time limit in place for pursuing medical and clinical negligence claims. A case must be brought within three years of the negligent act or three years from the date of knowledge, which is the time you found out your illness or injury had been caused by clinical negligence.

There are certain exceptions to this rule, as children, adults with learning difficulties and fatal cases have different limitation periods in place.
