Medical negligence lawyers and claims

Commonly asked questions about medical negligence claims

In most cases the professional’s insurance agency will normally be responsible for paying out the compensation claim to you.

The time limits for making a medical negligence claim are known as “statutes of limitations”. In most cases, the time limit is within three years for adults, six years for children and no limitation period for disabled people.

On average, medical negligence compensation claims take around one to two years from the time that you start your claim, to the case being resolved. Stacks Law Firm will ensure we do everything in our power to make the process as quick as possible for you.
