How to make a medical negligence claim with JCP Solicitors in Caerphilly
Our clinical negligence solicitors in Caerphilly can support you through the entire process of making a medical negligence claim, keeping the process straightforward, fast and cost-effective.
We can help you with all types of medical negligence claims, including:
Time limits for medical negligence claims
There is usually a 3-year time limit for starting a medical negligence claim, with this time limit starting either from when the incident occurred, or when you became aware that it had caused you injury.
There are exceptions, however, that can give you longer to bring a claim. For example, if the claimant was under 18 when the medical negligence occurred, they have until their 21st birthday to bring a claim. If the person affected lacks capacity to bring a claim e.g. if they suffered serious brain damage, there is usually no time limit to bring a claim.
Changing your Solicitor
There are many injury solicitors with a developed reputation for dealing with catastrophic injury. However there are some lawyers who will take on this type of medical negligence claim without having the required knowledge or specialisation to do it properly. An inexperienced lawyer can make a dreadful situation much worse.
Characteristics which are usually common to such cases are:
- Failure to arrange sufficient interim payments to meet immediate financial needs
- Failure to arrange appropiate therapy
- Under-settlement of the final claim
We are regularly instructed, often by the Official Solicitor, to pick up the pieces of catastrophic injury cases mishandled by solicitors lacking the experience to deal with these complex claims.
