Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Are you saying they were negligent? Have you had a second opinion?
When did all this happen? Straight after the vaccination?
I am not a medical expert. Have you had a second opinion about whether they were negligent?
If it happened 4 years ago then sadly you would be out of time. Under the Limitation Act 1980 you have 3 years to bring a claim for medical negligence. Therefore it would appear that your claim is out of time and statute barred.
If I am wrong about that then you would need to get a second opinion saying that the NHS were negligent. Unless you get this evidence then there is no claim.
If it went to Court a Judge would want an expert report saying the NHS were negligent, without this any claim would not succeed.
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?Alex
Only if you get an expert report saying they have been negligent.
You MUST have that expert report. If not the claim will fail.
I asked when you had the symptoms was it right after - you said yes. This means you knew 4 years ago.
But in any event you need medical expert evidence.Does that clarify? Alex
But you still need expert medical evidence regardless.
Do you understand that?Can I clarify anything else for you?
One that specialises in medical negligence.
Solicitor that specialises in medical negligence.
Does that clarify? Alex

Yes it would.
Does that clairfy?
Potentially yes. Which is why you need to see a Medical negligence solicitor. Alex
