The time limit for making a dental negligence claim is three years from the date negligence occurred, or when you became aware of the negligence. There are exceptions for patients under the age of 18 (whose three year window starts from their eighteenth birthday) and those suffering from mental illness (whose three years start from their recovery from the illness).

Dental negligence claims are not always straightforward and the process of gathering evidence can take some considerable time; therefore, it’s always recommended that those who feel they might have a claim, should seek expert dental legal representation as soon as possible after they experienced the negligent care.
