It is crucial to seek legal advice (Medical Negligence Solicitor Castlewellan) if you are considering bringing a medical negligence claim ideally as soon after the clinical accident as possible. This will mean the proper steps can be taken to fully investigate your case at the earliest opportunity. Some evidence relies on memories and it is always best to try and record these when they are fresh.
You are normally expected to start a claim within 3 years of the date of your injury or of the date when you first discovered your injury was the result of clinical negligence.

Matters that we can help with and with which we can usually give instant advice include:-
Medical Negligence Claims are different from general personal injury claims – they require that you, the claimant, prove two separate things: that the healthcare professional failed to carry out their responsibilities (fault) and this is what caused you to be in the position you are now (avoidable harm).
You may hear your medical negligence solicitor talk about a ‘breach of duty’. This simply means that, for the type of treatment you received, your care fell below the standard expected of a reasonably competent and skilful specialist. In other words that they failed to treat you in the way you could reasonably hope to be treated.
This is also called ‘causation’. It means that you need to show that the negligent care (rather than the underlying condition) caused you harm. This may sound relatively easy to prove, but in reality it can be difficult particularly when someone was already ill. Your lawyer will probably recommend that you obtain a medical report from an independent medical expert to help prove these two issues. They will be able to arrange this for you.
