    Accident lawyer in Leiston


    Can I use an accident lawyer in Leiston for a negligence claim?

    Leiston is a town in eastern Suffolk. The town had a population of 6,240 at the 2001 census. The 14th century remains of Leiston Abbey lie north west of the town.

    All medical staff, including doctors, dentists, opticians, nurses, and surgeons are professional people.  If they are self-employed, they will have their own professional indemnity cover, which also has to cover anyone acting on their behalf, such as the nurse at the doctors’ surgery.  If they are employed, they will probably be covered by their employers indemnity insurance – whichever they are, if they make a mistake or are negligent in some way while dealing with your health, you may be able to use an accident lawyer in Leiston.

    Professional indemnity insurance covers professionals who receive a claim from an accident lawyer in Leiston against them

    Most professional bodies insist or encourage their members to have professional indemnity insurance.  Such organisations as The General Medical Council, The College of Optometrists and The General Dental Council are examples of these.

    Our standards are high

    We are very lucky in the UK as our medical professionals are more highly trained than in a lot of other countries. However, they are all human and from time to time, mistakes are made.  If this happens to you, you may be able to use an injury lawyer in Leiston. The sorts of things that can happen are:

    • Laser eye surgery going wrong and affecting your sight
    • Wrong teeth pulled or drill slips and cuts your face
    • Wrong limb amputated
    • Misdiagnosis
    • Delay in diagnosis

    A misdiagnosis of an illness can have serious consequences, and cause untold anxiety and stress to the patient.  If this happens to you, it may be time to use an injury lawyer in Leiston.

    It’s usually big insurance companies who issue these policies

    We all know how hard it can be to deal with insurance companies.  Horrid, complicated forms, questions asked in such a way there could be ten ways of interpreting the information they want and worst of all, they often have a condescending attitude that says we are right, you are wrong, and nothing will convince them otherwise.  Well not quite – Accident Advice Helpline will deal with their forms, answer their questions and show them you are right to use an injury lawyer in Leiston.
