Although most doctors and nurses do a wonderful job of taking care of patients, severe staff shortages can mean that a patient’s needs are sometimes overlooked. If you, or a loved one, has spent time in the hospital and you haven’t received the care you should have, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation with help from Dundee City accident claim solicitors. Accident Advice Helpline can help you to do just that.
Claiming after neglect in hospital
If for example, you’ve undergone surgery of some sort, you may find it difficult to walk or to move around when you’re recovering. You may need help with eating your meals or taking your medication and hospital staff should be aware of this and on hand to assist you.
If they fail to do so, a patient could develop bedsores from being unable to move freely or they could become malnourished as they are unable to eat properly. If you’re already unwell or receiving treatment, these issues can make your overall health worse and it could take you longer to recover.
If you have suffered illness or injury through neglect whilst receiving medical care, there is a good chance that Dundee City accident claim solicitors will be able to act on your behalf and assist you in obtaining compensation. Similarly, if a family member or loved one has suffered in the same way, they too could make a compensation claim with Dundee City accident claim solicitors.
