Time limits for making a claim

You have to bring your claim within 3 years of the date of the injury or death as a result of negligent medical treatment, or within 3 years of the date that you became aware of such injury.

If the injured person is a child then the 3 year period does not begin to run until the child reaches 18 years of age. Similarly, if the injured person lacks capacity to manage his or her own affairs, the 3 year period does not begin to run until he or she regains capacity. If this never happens, then the 3 year period never starts to run. If you think that you may have a claim do not delay in seeking legal advice. It is best to start the process as soon as you can.
