    Nurse accident advice


    When working as a nurse, you are used to looking after other people.  You are likely to be regularly in contact with all sorts of diseases and other ailments, perhaps even death.  You may be professionally able to deal with this.  Relatively few people, however, consider the risks that nurses run on a daily basis. Working with sick people in a hospital, or in their own homes, can have potentially harmful effects.  If you had an accident as a nurse, in a hospital or other medical workplace environment, that happened in the last three years and which meant you had to seek medical help, you could be entitled to claim financial compensation.

    Your legal protection

    There are a number of laws and regulations in the workplace covering the nursing profession.  This means that you are safeguarded in hospitals, GP surgeries, patients’ homes, accident scenes or other workplace environments.  These laws and regulations were introduced over the years to ensure professionals’ health and safety, because nobody should run the risk of suffering an accident or injury without some form of legal protection.  This may include financial compensation for accidents or injuries suffered.

    Your accident

    Your accident as a nurse may have left you with significant physical or mental injuries.  After your accident, you may be finding it difficult to perform your medical duties with the same standards of care and diligence.  You may be liable for high medical fees or experience a significant loss of earnings.  You may be able to claim financial compensation for your accident if it was not your fault, it happened in the last three years and meant that you had to seek medical attention.
