Is It Possible To Sue A Hospital?

We expect perfection from our doctors, and perhaps that is a little unfair. However, we certainly should not accept any type of medical negligence, especially when it causes pain and suffering as a result. No matter how professional a doctor or surgeon may be, they are only human, and mistakes can be made. Just think about how complicated these medical procedures can be; the human body may react in a slightly different way than expected, and the results can be catastrophic. When a mistake is made due to a doctor or surgeon who has failed in their duty of care, it’s time to think about damages and compensation.

Failing in duty of care

When we listen to our doctor give a diagnosis regarding our own medical condition, we usually trust them 100%. This unconditional trust should be repaid with the doctor’s duty of care thereafter. When this duty of care has not been given correctly, the doctor has failed us as a patient. Whilst it may be difficult to prove in some cases, you usually have a gut feeling that things did not go to plan. Just imagine if you are recalled to the hospital for an emergency second operation. The doctor explains that this operation is to correct a medical procedure that was not successful the first time around, your suspicions may have been aroused. No matter how respected they may be, when this terrible situation arises, we need to make them, and their hospital, accountable for their actions. This usually involves contacting a legal specialist, such as Accident Advice Helpline, for advice regarding seeking medical compensation.
