If you’ve been injured, hurt or suffered long term damage as a result of medical negligence, UK law gives you the right to make a compensation claim in Stevenston.
What is medical negligence?
Whatever the cause of your injuries and however severe, Accident Advice Helpline can help you as you pursue your claim and ensure that nobody else suffers in the same way that you and your family have as a result of medical negligence.
When we receive medical treatment of any kind, we expect that the person providing that care or treatment, be it a doctor, a nurse or any other kind of professional will treat us with care and attention. In short, we put our health and wellbeing into the hands of others and expect to receive a high standard of treatment in return.
Unfortunately this is not always the case, and as a result thousands of people have suffered further injury, additional recovery time and in some situations a worse prognosis as a result of poor or negligent healthcare.
Medical negligence may include:
- Incorrect diagnosis
- Poor or mismanaged treatment
- Ignoring of symptoms
- Delay in diagnosis or treatment
- Failure of medical equipment
The fact is that whatever the nature of your injuries or the damage to your lifestyle, if the poor or negligent treatment you received in either a public or private healthcare facility is to blame then you have the right to make a compensation claim in Stevenston.
Depending on the extent of your injuries, a positive outcome from a compensation claim in Stevenston could provide you with recompense for:
- The cost of care since your injury
- The cost of prescriptions, equipment and other medical expenses
- Travel costs for you and your family
- Compensation for your psychological trauma and damage
- Reimbursement for loss of earnings
- Providing financial security for you and your family if you are forced to give up work or change jobs as a result of the damage which medical negligence caused to you
