Negligent PRENATAL Advice

How long will my negligent prenatal advice claim take


How long will my negligent prenatal advice claim take

This is difficult to pin down precisely. These cases require access to records and paperwork as well as investigative work. How quickly these documents are made available will influence how long it takes to establish the facts and be in a position to prove your case.

Whether or not the other party admits liability will also dictate how long it takes to reach a resolution. We will need to establish if there's a case to be answered by the other side. We must prove that mistakes were made, correct procedures were not followed, advice was not given or tests were not carried out as they should have been.

We then need to obtain evidence about the condition of your baby and what their future might look like or assess the mother’s health and wellbeing as well as her own future needs. It will take time and the input of many specialists to build an accurate picture.

The length of time spent in such investigations can vary. It’s possible that intervention and support will be required for the rest of your child’s life. The fact that your injured child may be denied the possibility of future earnings through work will also need to be factored into any settlement.

Often, the other side will dispute our evidence and our valuation so we need to enter into negotiations to reach a satisfactory settlement. We may need to ask a Judge to decide your case in Court. Access Legal will always aim to resolve your case as quickly as possible, but it will take time to ensure we achieve the best possible outcome for you and your baby.
