Children Claim Solicitors
As well as dealing with clinical negligence cases for adults, we take on claims for injured children and infants, supporting parents and family members through what can be an incredibly difficult process.
It’s hard to think of a more upsetting scenario than seeing your son or daughter needlessly injured through the failures of medical professionals – we understand this, and offer comprehensive and sensitive support, focused on getting the justice you deserve.
Youngsters injured by clinical negligence are often left unable to live a normal life, or look after themselves, putting additional pressure on the family unit. This stress can be emotional and financial, but help is at hand.
Things to note
Although ordinarily court proceedings have to be started within 3 years of the negligence, this period may sometimes be extended from when the injured party knew or ought to have known of a potential claim. For children, the three year period does not start until they reach the age of 18, meaning court proceedings have to be started before their 21st birthday.
However if the injury has resulted in a continuous loss of requisite mental capacity, then this time limit may not apply at all.
There are different time limits for clinical negligence claims which arise as a result of any defective equipment.
Our expert team of professional can provide advice on any potential time limits which might apply.
