Most electric shock NHS care is of excellent quality, and will assess the condition of any patient that has received an electrical shock of some degree. In mild cases, you may decide to see your GP to confirm you are safe and that you have no lasting effects from the shock. However, in cases where the shock is more serious, you may be treated in hospital following the incident.
Most people who are treated by the NHS receive excellent care. Additionally, some who have been shocked have survived only because of the care they received. Perhaps you are in the same situation now.
Are you wondering about negligence after getting electric shock NHS care?
If you received a nasty shock that required hospital treatment, the whole episode can be quite frightening. Once you are recovering from any injuries you suffered through the shock, you might start to think back to how it happened. Do you remember what happened? Were there witnesses to the event? Did it happen at work, or did it happen in some other situation you were in?
Whatever the case was for you, you should consider whether negligence was part of the situation. For example, if you were working at the time, did you experience a shock from exposed wires on your computer? Did you receive a shock from a faulty kettle in your work kitchen? If you think an appliance or piece of machinery should have been checked and safe and it wasn’t, you may have a case to answer.
