Why Specialist Medical Negligence Claims Solicitors?

One of the reasons that Glynns specialise in medical negligence claims is because it is such a complex area and we need to understand it fully. Our medical negligence team spends all day working with different medical negligence issues which ensures that whatever the nature of your potential compensation claim we should be able to help you.

Details Of Our Medical Negligence Claims Expertise

We have many years experience of medical negligence claims including the following types of claims for compensation:

Funding Medical Negligence Claims

Most cases are funded under our Medical Negligence No Win No Fee scheme as it allows you to pursue a claim without paying the often high costs to fund expert medical evidence. With the insurance policy we provide, it also protects you from any claims for costs against you if you fail to win your claim. It provides you with a great deal of peace of mind.

Medical Negligence Solicitors Bristol

Although our offices are based in between Bristol and Bath, we can act for clients across England and Wales. During the course of your claim, you will need to speak regularly to your solicitor. However, much of the correspondence will be over the telephone, and also through written communications such as emails and letters. If a face-to-face meeting is needed at any point, your solicitor can travel to you, so it really does not matter where you live in the country.

Time Limits on Claims Medical Negligence Solicitors Bristol

Medical negligence claims are subject to a time limit. A claim must be made within three years of the negligent event.

Sometimes the start date will be very obvious. For example, if you undergo an amputation but the wrong limb is removed, the three years will begin from the date of surgery. Other times it is less obvious, particularly if you only became aware of the negligence months or years later. For instance, a fallopian tube may not be clipped properly during a sterilisation, but this will only become apparent when the patient falls pregnant. In such cases, your solicitor may recommend that the three years starts from your 'date of knowledge' - i.e. when you first suspected you had been the victim of negligence.

If you miss the three year window of opportunity, you will sadly not be able to pursue a claim. This means it is very important you speak to our medical negligence solicitors Bristol at the earliest available opportunity. This will ensure that you do not miss out on your chance to access justice.

Can A Time Limit Be Extended?

It may be possible to extend your date of limitation, meaning the date the three year timeframe expires. Your solicitor will have to negotiate with the other side in order to secure this extension and it may not always be granted. Therefore it is best not to rely upon an extension of time.

There are also some exceptions to the three year rule. If the victim is under the age of 18, he or she will have until their 21st birthday to bring a claim. If the victim lacks mental capacity, there will not be a time limit at all.

Fatal Claims Medical Negligence Solicitors Bristol

You may also be wondering whether you can bring a claim on behalf of a loved one who has died since (or as a result of) suffering medical negligence. The answer is yes, our medical negligence solicitors Bristol do handle fatal claims. Someone close to the deceased, such as a spouse, child or parent, will need to bring the claim on behalf of the estate.
