    What is Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA)?


    Action against Medical Accidents – otherwise known as AvMA – is a charity that has been created to ensure patients have support with regard to getting justice for medical negligence and other similar situations. Action against Medical Accidents is a recognised charity and it provides information and support to those who have been affected by such incidents.

    They have an official website that provides the latest news in the area as well as listing information about their campaigns. Patients who have been involved in a medical accident of some kind can also share their experiences via the website if they feel able to do so. They are funded by the lottery and they are passionate about making sure they are open and ethical about the way they do things. There is really no other similar charity out there today and as time goes on they are becoming more widely known in a variety of areas. In 2014 the charity will mark its 30th anniversary since it was first created. This is a major landmark and it marks three decades of hard work helping patients who have been affected by medical accidents of various types, from the relatively minor to the far more serious.

    Could you be entitled to compensation as a result of a medical accident?

    There are all kinds of reasons why things can go wrong in the medical profession. Sometimes an illness can progress without warning; at other times nothing anyone could do would save someone from a severe illness or injuries. However there are other occasions – thankfully rare ones – where things can go wrong and accidents can occur. If these can be proven to be someone else’s fault through medical negligence then compensation is a possibility. It all depends on the facts of the situation.
