How long does a claim for retained placenta medical negligence take?

Medical negligence injury claims are rarely completed quickly.  The timescale for a retained placenta medical negligence claim will depend on the individual circumstances of your case; however, most cases take between two and three 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).
