Have you suffered an accident whilst visiting someone in hospital?
When a friend or family member is admitted to hospital, you may expect to be able to visit them easily and without any complications. Unfortunately, however, this isn’t always the case. In addition to patients suffering additional injuries and illnesses whilst in hospital, visitors and even volunteers can be affected as well resulting in an accident in Church Village.
Although hospitals and medical institutions are required to follow very strict health and safety guidelines, sometimes things can go wrong. If, for example, you visit someone in hospital and the ward or entire hospital has been infected by a bacterial infection, you could be at risk of contracting it yourself.
Whilst most hospitals do now provide free hand sanitiser and request that visitors wash their hands both before and after entering the premises, this isn’t always enough to prevent germs and illnesses from spreading.
If you’ve contracted an illness after visiting someone in a hospital, you may be able to claim compensation if the hospital or its staff can be at fault. If, for example, they have been negligent in the handling of the outbreak or haven’t followed the relevant protocol, you may be eligible to receive compensation.
Similarly, if you were to suffer an injury as a result of an accident whilst in a hospital, you could also make a compensation claim. If, for example, a wet floor was left unattended and people weren’t warned, they could easily slip and suffer an accident in Church Village as a result.
Make your claim count
