No Win, No Fee Clinical Negligence Claims

Our ‘No Win, No Fee‘ policy is designed to ease the financial burden during what is already an emotionally taxing time. This means our clinical negligence lawyers do not require any upfront payment from you. Our fees are only applicable upon the successful resolution of your claim.

What is the Timescale for Making a Clinical Negligence Claim in Scotland?

Adhering to the legal time limits for making clinical negligence compensation claims is crucial in building a strong case. In Scotland, you must make a claim within three years from when you have suffered a personal injury or harm. 

For many, the effects of a medical professional’s negligence may not be obvious right away. That is why the three-year time limit is known as the ‘date of knowledge’ meaning when you first become aware of the negligence. 

Specialist circumstances can alter this time limit, for example, the time limit does not start for a child until three years from the date of their 16th birthday. Contact one of our professional clinical negligence solicitors in Scotland on 0333 3580 583 for personalised advice about your case.
