The Medical Negligence Guide

Medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence, occurs when healthcare professionals provide substandard care, leading to injury, worsening of an existing condition, or other adverse effects. Healthcare professionals are held to high standards of care and trust. However, sometimes, lapses in these standards can lead to significant harm and distress. Medical negligence claims address these instances, offering affected individuals a pathway to justice, closure, and potential compensation. Resolve Solicitors stands with victims of medical negligence, ensuring their rights are upheld, and their grievances addressed with the utmost care and diligence.


Typically, there's a three-year window from the date of the negligence or from when you became aware of it. There are exceptions, especially with children or those with limited mental capacity.

The duration varies based on the case's complexity, evidence, and negotiation progress. Some cases may conclude within months, while others might take years.

Many claims are settled outside of court. However, if an agreement isn't reached, court proceedings might be necessary.

Compensation depends on the severity of the negligence, damages incurred, and long-term implications. It can cover medical costs, loss of earnings, and pain and suffering.
