Hospitals can be busy and highly-charged environments. Run by professionals and continuously inspected to ensure standards remain high, accidents can sometimes happen. You may have been visiting a sick relative or friend and have been injured by equipment or hospital staff. You could have even fallen down badly maintained stairs and broken an arm or leg, or suffered a concussion.
Health and safety regulations
A lot of work goes on in hospitals to keep them sanitary; any work done on the floors or to other public areas should be marked as hazardous, so that you know that you need to take extra care. Any risks posed to the public should be clearly signposted. If your hospital injury was the results of a breach of health and safety regulations, this could give you a strong basis for a compensation claim. You are also covered by health and safety regulations as a patient; any doctors or nurses who treated you without observing their professional code of conduct could be liable to pay you compensation.
