How long will my claim take?

The length of your claim is entirely dependent on the nature of your claim and the severity of the injuries sustained.

In straightforward cases, where there is no doubt about whether the doctor or hospital is liable for your injuries, and there are no significant ongoing symptoms, your claim could be settled in a few months.

However, in more complex medical negligence claims, particularly where there are arguments about whether treatment was negligent, it can take significantly longer.

What we can say is that we’ll push your claim forward so that a conclusion is reached as soon as reasonably possible, and we’ll provide realistic estimates as to when this is likely to be.

Even where it’s not feasible to resolve your claim quickly, we’ll try to obtain interim compensation payments to help ensure the necessary care and rehabilitation can begin as soon as possible.
