Is there a time limit for making a hip surgery negligence claim?

Yes; the ‘limitation’ period to bring a claim for medical negligence is generally three years from the negligence or the reasonable date of knowledge of the injury.  This means that if you became aware of the injury or diagnosis weeks, months, or even years later, the three-year period may commence from that point.  Therefore, the limitation period may begin from when you first became aware that the hip problems following surgery were as a result of negligence.

In rare circumstances, the Court may use its discretion to extend the limitation period, but only for exceptional reasons, so it is important to contact us now, without further delay.
