Whilst it may never have been possible to find a cure for a terminal disease, you may feel that your loved one’s life expectancy or quality of life could have been improved if they had received more appropriate medical care.
For example, if a healthcare professional does not exercise reasonable care and fails to diagnose a serious condition like a brain aneurysm, despite the warning signs, then any subsequent deterioration in their condition could result in a claim for clinical negligence.
Deciding whether to bring a clinical negligence case in these circumstances can be a difficult decision.
If you think you might want to bring a claim at some point in the future, it is vital you seek professional legal advice as soon as possible.
This means that if and when you decide to bring a claim in the future you will be able to do so within the legal time limits.
