As the go-to law firm for personal injury enquiries, we have received calls from doctors asking us “Can I claim for an injury as a GP?” Within a GP’s surgery, there is always a great deal of equipment that can be dangerous if used improperly or left where it can cause damage, so there are actually many reasons why a GP may be injured through no fault of their own.
For this reason, you need to get the right legal advice. Talking to Accident Advice Helpline will take you through many aspects of what has happened. Were you properly trained to use the equipment? Was a person who had been properly trained using it? Were the right health and safety measures in place at the time of the accident? If you answer “no” to any of these questions, then you might be able to make a claim.
Why should I make a personal injury claim?
It is important to remember that a personal injury claim will help to cover a number of different things. You might have had to take time away from work that led to loss of earnings or incurred different expenses. You may also be entitled to compensation simply because the accident should not have happened. Making a personal injury claim can also be important because it will bring the problem to the attention of those responsible and they can then take the relevant steps to stop it from happening to other people.
