How long do you have to make a claim?

In most cases you have 3 years to make a claim for medical negligence. This time period starts to run from the date on which the negligent act or omission occurred. However in cases of medical negligence it is possible to extend this period further if you can show that your “knowledge” of the negligent act became apparent at a later date. If the injured party was under 18 at the time the negligence was committed, they will have until their 21st birthday to bring a claim.

Medical negligence is also known as clinical negligence, and it is the term used to describe a breach of duty of care by a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional that leads to harm that could have been avoided.
