Making a professional negligence claim

If you believe that you have been the victim of professional negligence, it’s important to act quickly. The statute of limitations may apply to professional negligence claims. These time limits can reduce the time you have to file a claim. In addition to this it is important when making a claim to allow time for it to be well considered and professionally drafted to establish how the professional breached their duty of care. This can take additional time and you may need to engage other professionals to substantiate and support your case such as experts and barristers.
