When to Claim for Hospital Compensation?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions shot by our clients. There is no definite time when you can make a claim. The statutory time limit is three years since the diagnosis of the injury. Within the time period, anybody can make a claim. However, if your question is directed towards the eligibility of a case, then four general parameters can decide if your case is entitled a compensatory award. Check if your case satisfies the following:
• Breach of doctor’s duty of care
• Violation of patients’ right to care
• Transgression resulted in considerable injuries
• A substantial amount of cash spent on the cure of negligence-caused injuries
If the concerned case meets these four basic requirements, then you can surely bring a case on your opponent after a brief discussion with your lawyer. Sometimes, even when you have a case, winning chances are diminished because of certain odds and ends that work against the truth. So, in that case, you need a proficient lawyer who can either make ends meet against all odds or can review the case thoroughly to understand your chances.
