When you are ill, or have been injured, you visit your doctor because we trust them to make us better, or at least refer us to hospital for tests, so they can remedy our problem. But sometimes the doctor, hospitals and other medical professionals make mistakes and the consequences can be dire. If this has happened to you sometime in the last three years, you could be entitled to make an injury claim in Crawley, for compensation.
Why victims make an injury claim in Crawley for medical negligence
If a doctor or any other medical professional misdiagnoses or mistreats your illness, the correct treatment could be delayed, if ever given at all. This can cause all sorts of problems, either by making your illness worse, or creating another totally new condition for you.
None of them do this purposely, and they could well be unaware they are getting it wrong. But that does not alter your legal right to make an injury claim in Crawley, and the fact you do this can highlight the mistake that is being made, and prevent it from happening to other innocent victims.
These types of claims are settled either by professional indemnity insurance, or the NHS depending on the employment situation of whoever mistreated you.
In the case of the insurance companies, they insist that there is at least a 50% chance that the treatment you received was not suitable, and they will not even consider a claim unless you can show this.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we usually achieve the 50% chance by arranging for a report from a specialist in the area of your particular injury or illness. If they say that you should have been treated differently, the medical professional may have a case to answer to, but if they say they would have treated you in exactly the same way, you probably would not be able to make a personal injury claim in Crawley for medical negligence.
