If you have reason to believe that you or your loved ones have been injured as a result of clinical negligence contact the expert clinical negligence solicitors at Forbes on 0800 037 4625 for free initial advice and start your no win, no fee compensation claim today.

When you contact the expert clinical negligence solicitors at Forbes we will discuss the extent of your injuries with you and try to ascertain who might be to blame for those injuries.

Here we will need to decide who is at fault, at which time you may hear us talk about "breach of duty". This is where we will try to determine whether your care fell below the high standards expected of medical professionals. We will talk about your claim with you and figure out whether a medical professional has caused you more harm than good as a result of their incompetence. This part is called "causation" or "avoidable harm" and is where we try to prove that the care itself, not the illness, has caused the injury.

Time limits

There are strict time limits placed upon clinical negligence claims but these may vary depending on the age of the patient. Patients are usually required to start a compensation claim within 3 years of their injury, or within 3 years of when they discover their injury was the result of clinical negligence.

In cases where a child under 18 has suffered clinical injury, the time limit starts from the date of their 18th birthday.

It's vital that you contact the expert solicitors at Forbes as soon as possible as these time limits are strictly enforced.

For more information on making a clinical negligence compensation claim, contact the expert no win no fee clinical negligence solicitors at Forbes today.

All initial advice is completely free and all cases are handled on a no win, no fee basis.
