about 12 months ago

This is a tricky one.
The Limitation Act for negligence is 3 years from date of knowledge.
It may be if a claim is issued they would argue if you knew 4 years ago and had the pain then that is when the time runs.
If that is the case then you will be out of time and any claim statue barred
If the Court considers 12 months when you knew then your claim would be in time.
In any event legal aid is no longer available for these type of cases and you would need to pay for a Solicitor yourself to take the case on.
If fought then the costs are likely to be around £10,000 and if you lose you may have to pay the costs of the other side.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
what about white finger or is it the same
The reply would be the same. Any statute of limitations would apply for 3 years.
Does that assist?
