Time restrictions for pursuing a medical negligence claim

Any claim for clinical negligence must be brought within 3 years of the negligence (or within 3 years of the date of knowledge if that is the later).

Any claim for clinical negligence involving a minor must be brought within 3 years of that person’s 18th birthday.

If proceedings are not brought within the 3 year period then you are precluded from bringing a claim for clinical negligence.

The Court may exercise its discretion under the Limitations Act 1980, but this is only rarely used.
