Claims often have time limits, and these can prevent a claim from going ahead if too much time has passed.
For professional negligence claims, you must claim within 6 years of the date of the negligence in question. This period, however, can be lengthened if you only became aware of the negligence at a later date.
A number of legal rules can alter the time limit which applies in your case, and it can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint the date on which the negligence occurred. Therefore, if you are thinking of bringing a professional negligence claim, or are worried that you may have left matters too long, contact us as soon as possible so that we can advise you fully.
