If your doctor injured you during an inoculation procedure, you should try to find the best inoculation injury advice that you can. This is where Accident Advice Helpline can help. Established in 2000, we have helped thousands make financial claims for personal injuries they did not cause themselves. You may be thinking that an inoculation accident is very rare and that it may thus be difficult to find a good advisor. We have worked on many different cases over the 14 years since our inception, making us the ideal choice for advice about seemingly rare types of accident.
An inoculation is a procedure by which a small sample of a virus is introduced into the human body. The idea is to let it attack the body’s natural immune system. That system will eradicate the virus, thereby making it immune to future attacks by the same virus.
Inoculations have been around for many years – thousands of people are vaccinated against smallpox by having a small amount of the virus injected into their body. Inoculations are statistically very safe. Under normal circumstances, with a fully-trained doctor who knows your medical history well, you should have no fears about being inoculated.
Your inoculation accident
If you were injured during or because of your inoculation, you may have a solid claim for financial compensation. Perhaps your doctor did not pay proper attention to your medical history, administered too much or too little of the virus, used faulty, damaged or unsterilised equipment or was negligent in another regard. Whatever the precise cause of your inoculation accident, if you were not at fault yourself and the accident happened to you in the last three years, you should have a case for compensation.
One of the best ways in which you can prepare your claim is to document what you remember about your inoculation accident. Photographic evidence, witness statements, medical records and invoices or receipts relating to your accident could all contribute to your claim. When you contact Accident Advice Helpline, one of our friendly call advisors will go through your inoculation injury with you. The idea is for us to get a better understanding of how we can help you, if you have a potential claim for compensation and what it could be worth.
If we think you have a valid claim to make, your case will be assigned to one of our expert personal injury lawyers. Your lawyer will want to go through all the documentation about your accident that you have kept. It is crucial that you can prove how the other person involved in your inoculation injury was at fault.
