Is there a time limit for making an ambulance or paramedic negligence claim?

Patients who have experienced medical negligence in paramedic services or ambulance delays have three years from the date of the injury within which to make a compensation claim.

You may have longer to bring a claim in the following circumstances:

If you are claiming for a child – You will have 3 years from their 18th birthday to make a claim.

If you are claiming for someone who lacks mental capacity – A child or adult without capacity to run a claim, may not have a time limit within which to bring a claim.  We recommend that you contact Devonshires Claims if you have any queries involving those who lack capacity and our specialist solicitors will be able to assist.

If you are making a claim for someone who has died – You will generally have 3 years from the date of death of the injured party to bring a claim.

Due to the three year limit within which to make certain compensation claims, Devonshires Claims’ recommends starting your medical negligence claim as soon as possible. Contact our experts for a free no obligation review of your case.
