You are used to looking after the welfare of others working as a doctor. Disease, illness and people in distress are likely to be common occurrences to you, most of which you may be able to deal with on a professional level. Few people, however, tend to consider the danger many doctors expose themselves to on a regular basis. There can be many risks in dealing with illness, including infection, mistakes made due to time pressures or overwork, or a sometimes volatile environment in which to work. Finding doctor accident advice is easy. You can call Accident Advice Helpline and one of our friendly call handlers will be able to tell you if you have a potential claim for financial compensation. You can also try our free, 30-second online claim calculator.
Maybe your accident as a doctor has resulted in a significant physical or mental injury? As a result of this, you may now be finding it difficult to concentrate or function professionally to the same degree as before your accident. There may be high medical costs relating to treatment of your injuries and you may not be able to work full-time anymore, potentially impacting your earning power. Start your financial claim for accident compensation by checking with Accident Advice Helpline.
What are your legal rights?
There are a number of laws and regulations to protect your interests in the workplace. As a doctor working in a hospital, GP surgery or in a patient’s home, you are legally safeguarded. These health and safety and injury laws and regulations were introduced over the years to ensure the welfare of professionals. Nobody should run the risk of suffering an accident or injury without some form of legal protection, and such protection may include financial compensation for accidents or injuries suffered.
