How long will my claim about medication errors take
It does take time to investigate your case properly to ensure we achieve the best possible outcome for you. Each case is unique and we will need to obtain copies of your medical records, dispensing and other relevant paperwork.
We also need to prepare witness statements and obtain independent medical reports to establish if your treatment has been negligent. If it has, we must then determine what harm you have suffered as a result of that negligence.
We must get an independent medical opinion about your current condition, what assistance you need immediately and what help you are likely to require on an ongoing basis. These things could all form part of your compensation claim. We would also need to take account of the financial losses you have incurred as a result of the negligence, such as lost earnings if you cannot return to work.
All this takes time, but is vital to properly assess and investigate your claim and recover the maximum amount of compensation to which you're entitled. The attitude of the other side also influences how long a claim may take to settle.
Cases in which liability (i.e. fault) is admitted settle faster than if liability is denied. Many claims settle through negotiation (sometimes even if liability is denied), but sometimes these cases can and do go to Trial. We can in certain cases obtain interim payments to fund any immediate needs that you might have as a result of the negligence.
