How long does a claim against a hospital take?

A

This type of claim is not always the quickest to resolve. You should be prepared that it may last one to two years and in some cases, much longer.  In the early stages, we advise that preliminary investigations leading to the point where we are able to submit a formal Letter of Claim tends to take around six months. What happens beyond this point depends on whether liability for your claim is accepted by the defendant’s insurer or not, but we will keep you advised every step of the way.
