The use of homeopathy as a treatment for various illnesses is on the rise, which in turn increases the likelihood of a homeopath accident claim by patients who feel they have a valid case for a personal injury claim. When you receive treatment of any kind, you expect to have your symptoms alleviated, however, if the pain is intensified post treatment it could be due to the treatment you have received. If you or someone you know has been treated using homeopathy and adverse effects or increased pain has resulted, it is highly likely that you are entitled to make a compensation claim for the injury.
Homeopathy is a complementary or alternative treatment (CAM) that is used for ailments such as asthma, hay fever and skin complaints such as dermatitis. The method of treatment involves helping the body to fight symptoms using its own defences. When you go to a homeopath they will most probably ask you questions about your diet, lifestyle, sleep patterns and general well-being. This alternative form of treatment is rather controversial and many people believe that homeopathy simply does not work at all.
As with any treatment type there is the chance that you can be given the wrong diagnosis and incorrect advice intended to alleviate the symptoms of the condition. If you have been a victim of improper treatment, there is a strong possibility that you are entitled to a personal injury compensation claim payout. In order to find out further details regarding applying for a personal injury claim, Accident Advice Helpline operates a 24/7 free helpline. By contacting the helpline you can speak to one of our highly trained advisers who will do their best to clarify any part of the claims process for you.
If you suspect that you have not been receiving the correct homeopathic treatment for your ailments, you should visit your local GP in order to ascertain whether the treatment you have received from the homeopath is hindering your recovery. Any medical records that exist concerning the nature of the original illness for which you were ultimately treated will prove helpful when it comes to making the claim for compensation. It is the responsibility of a medical professional to ensure that the correct treatment is given to the patient. The homeopath must also adhere strictly to health and safety guidelines and ensure that they conduct themselves in a professional manner.
