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.
