Cardiac Claims

How long will a claim about a heart problem take


How long will a claim about a heart problem take

There is no simple answer to this question. The length of time a claim takes to conclude depends on a variety of factors, such as whether your injury is resolved or ongoing, and the other party’s response.

We will need access to your medical records and will obtain evidence from independent experts to provide reports to establish if there is a case to be answered. If we can establish that you have received sub-standard care we then need to obtain independent expert evidence about your current condition, future health and what help you may require on an ongoing basis.

Your personal circumstances, age and employment prospects will dictate how many reports are required and how long we will need to take account of lost earnings, if you cannot return to work, and the cost of whatever help and support you may need now and in the future.

The other side’s approach to the case will also effect the length of time matters take to come a conclusion.  If the claim is robustly denied the claim can take longer to conclude.  We will not want to resolve a claim if progression of your medical condition is uncertain. Although few cases proceed to trial, this remains a possibility in every case.

Access Legal will always aim to settle your case without delay, but it’s important we take the time to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
