Timescale - How long will my medical negligence claim take?

It is difficult to give an accurate estimate of how long your claim will take to settle from start to finish as this depends on a number of factors, some of which are beyond our control.

However, clinical negligence claims can take some time to resolve, but it is important that the time is taken to investigate your claim properly, to ensure you get the right amount of compensation for your claim. If a claim is rushed, it could result in you receiving a lot less money than you are entitled to.

We will work with you and always keep you informed of the timescale for each step in proceedings and keep you regularly updated as matters progress.
