How long will my gynaecology and pregnancy claim take
Despite the requirement for increased candour by medical staff, these cases still tend to be defended. Resolution depends on a variety of factors, such as how serious any injuries are and whether the other party quickly admits liability.
We will need to gather evidence from a variety of independent medical experts to establish if there is a case to be answered by the other side. Such medical experts must consider the conduct of the treating doctors and comment on whether mistakes were made or correct procedures not followed.
We then need to obtain evidence about the current condition of you or your baby and what the future holds. It will take time and can take the input of many specialists to get an accurate assessment of you or your child’s future health and needs.
It is possible that intervention and support will be required for the rest of you or your child’s life. The fact that you or your injured child may be denied the possibility of future earnings through work will also need to be factored into any settlement.
The other side may dispute our evidence and our valuation so we need to enter into negotiations to reach a satisfactory settlement. The length of time spent in such negotiations can vary.
We will always aim to settle your claim without delay, but it often takes time to ensure we achieve the best possible outcome for you and your child.
