Do you need to make Falkirk personal injury claims after suffering a fall in hospital?
When you’re admitted to hospital, medical staff have a duty to care for you. Although this may involve treating specific injuries, such as a broken arm or leg, it also refers to your general well-being. If, for example, you need to get up but your mobility is affected, staff should be on hand to help you.
Unfortunately, staff cuts mean that there often are not enough nurses available and patients may not always get the help they need. This can lead to further injuries being sustained. If, for example, you try to get up and fall because no-one was there to assist you, you could exacerbate an existing injury or suffer a new injury.
When this type of incident occurs, hospital staff are often held liable and you could potentially make Falkirk personal injury claims against them. If you can prove that they were responsible for your injuries, there’s a good chance that you will obtain compensation by making Falkirk personal injury claims.
When you make Falkirk personal injury claims against a hospital or medical facility, you often have to make your claim against an NHS Trust or a private medical company as a whole, rather than the individual hospital.
