Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How long after having the implants placed did you begin to experience problems?
OK, thank you for your response. I will review the relevant information and laws and will get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Also, please do not responded to this message as it will just push your question to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you.
Many thanks for your patience. You could have a potential case for professional negligence here, because the standard of work appears to have fallen below that expected of a reasonable professional in their position.
The main issue here is that a professional negligence claim becomes time barred six years after breach of contract or actual damage resulting from a negligent act occurs. It means that a claim must be made within that time or you would be too late to take this any further.
Whilst you had the work done in 2009, it does not automatically mean the time would start to run from then. You could argue that it should start to run from the date you became aware that there had been an issue with the work. So if this was within the last 6 years then you should still be in time to claim and take this further to seek compensation for the repair costs – you may not get a refund for the full amount but an amount to get the issues repaired.
This is your basic legal position. I have more detailed advice for you in terms of the options you have on taking this further, which I wish to discuss so please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far (by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars) and I can continue with that and answer any further questions you may have. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can continue this discussion. Thank you
Thank you. You may wish to see a solicitor to get some help with taking this further. If you wanted to go at it alone then you need to take this to the county court, The procedure can be found here:
well if the remedial work is going to cost more than the initial work then you can ask for the full amount back, My initial response was on the basis that corrective work may be less than what you had originally paid
you are welcome, best of luck
