Medical negligence and expert solicitors in Kilwinn
There is a huge amount of differing fields in the world of medicine, and some time during our lives most of them will visit several. Whether it is a doctor, a dentist, an optician, a nurse, a dietitian, or the hospital, they can all make mistakes that can have dire consequences for the victim.
We trust our doctor, we have to as they know more than we will ever know about illnesses. If you do not trust yours, then you should be looking for one you can have faith in, a doctor you can believe will make the right diagnosis when you are ill. The sorts of things a doctor could get wrong are:
- Prescribe the wrong medication
- Prescribe the wrong medical device
- Ignore important symptoms
- Misdiagnose an illness
- Give a late diagnosis
If you believe that what your doctor is telling you is wrong, then you are entitled to a second opinion.
Other medical professionals
Other medical professionals are just as likely to make similar mistakes to the doctors plus others, such as:
- The dentist pulling the wrong teeth
- The optician getting your laser eye surgery wrong
- The hospital giving you the wrong treatment
- The chemist giving you some one else’s medicine
- The nurse taking the wrong blood test
These are just a few of the literally thousands of mistakes that could happen, and if you are the victim of an error, you might want to claim compensation.
