Patients who have experienced medical negligence in endoscopies or gastroenterology surgery 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.
