If you need advice on making a hospital fire accident claim, you need look no further than Accident Advice Helpline’s team of personal injury specialists. Whether you need advice about your accident, information about compensation law or updates on your own injury claim, call our free, 24-hour helpline today.
Fires are terrifying and unpredictable events no matter where they start, but one that occurs in a hospital, a place where you should feel safe, can cause understandable psychological distress as well as physical injury. If the fire is found to be the fault of the hospital – be this through staff negligence, hazardous surroundings or faulty equipment – you may be entitled to compensation. By making a claim, you are ensuring that those responsible take the necessary steps to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again.
Making a claim
If the hospital fire that caused your injuries occurred within the last three years and resulted in medical treatment, Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a hospital fire accident claim against those responsible.
To make a claim, it is imperative that you have a medical record of the accident and the injuries you sustained. Therefore, even if you feel all right at the time, it is important that you check in with your doctor. Similarly, if you later develop any problems that are caused by your accident, pay a repeat visit to have your medical records updated. It may be possible, even once your claim is in progress, to submit further supporting notes if your medical condition worsens. By getting the ball rolling sooner rather than later, it is often easier to gather other evidence to support your case, such as eyewitness statements or photographs. So don’t delay: give your case the best chance of success.
