Medical negligence is an act or omission by a health care provider which deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and which causes injury to the patient.
There are a number of ways that medical negligence can happen, such as misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment or surgical mistakes.
It will be necessary for you to take up a copy of all medical records from your GP and any hospitals you have attended.
It is impossible to say that any particular case will resolve without the necessity of a court hearing. Every case is prepared on the basis that it is proceeding to a full trial however there may be an opportunity for mediation or settlement out of court.
The statute of limitations are the legal time limits on how long you have to make a claim. The general rule is that proceedings must be issued within two years of the date of the negligent act or two years from the date that you became aware that your illness or injuries caused by a third party. It is vital that proceedings are issued in advance of your statute date.
