We maintain pressure on medical negligence case.
Our client Miss W from Newcastle came to us having received a serious injury relating to potential medical negligence.
We established that, for a number of reasons, the case was likely to run over the three year limitation without urgent attention.
We quickly issued Court proceedings to extend the time (a further 12 months) during which this case could be fully investigated and brought to court, something the Trusts involved were not keen to see happen in view of the likely size of the claim.
It is therefore vital to ensure that any medical negligence claims are made as soon as possible and certainly before three years has elapsed since first injury occurs. If you require further advice on this please do not hesitate to contact us.
