How long does a claim for episiotomy and birth tear injury claim take?

Medical negligence injury claims are rarely completed quickly.  The timescale for an episiotomy or birth tear injury claim will depend on individual circumstances of your case; however, most cases commonly take between 2 and 3 years to fully conclude.  Factors which will affect how long your claim takes may include:

  • how severely you were injured
  • the prognosis
  • whether ongoing care is required
  • how much rehabilitation is needed
  • whether you require costs to cover home modifications
  • Whether the defendant admits liability (if they do, claims can usually be concluded much faster).
