  • failure to gain consent
  • keyhole surgery
  • cosmetic surgery

How we can help you

Throughout your claim, we will provide you with the support, advice and representation you need through the following procedures:

  • The investigation
  • Compensation estimates
  • Negotiating with the defendant
  • Taking the case to trial

How long do I have to claim?

If you are a victim of surgical negligence, you will have a three-year deadline to make a claim, starting from the date your injuries or illness occurred. If a loved one has died as a result, the three-year limit starts from the date of their death. The three year deadline for children will start from the date of their 18th birthday. In special cases, the court will allow certain cases ‘out of time’. For advice on whether your case will be eligible, call our specialist clinical negligence team today.
