Unlike public liability claims, medical negligence claims require the parties to serve an initial notice on the party at fault. The party on whom that initial notice is served must provide a response within 1 month and any relevant medical records. Within 12 months of that response a Notice of Claim (Health Care) form must be provided with evidence from a medical specialist supporting the claim. Our principal can assist obtaining that specialist opinion and if supportive of any claim assist with lodging a Notice of Claim form on the party at fault.

Furthermore, there are time limits to start proceedings in court for damages arising from these types of injuries and that is normally 3 years from the date of the injury. If the person injured was younger than 18 when the injury occurred then the 3 year period to start proceedings in a court commences when they turn 18.
