If you have been injured in an accident that was not your own fault, one of the first things you should do is get yourself checked out with your doctor that is if you have not been taken to hospital by an ambulance.
But there can lie another problem, what if the medical professional who treats you, gets the treatment wrong, this would be another reason for making a personal injury claim in East Dorset.
From the doctors or hospital, you could make your way to the pharmacy to get whatever they have prescribed to help you and what if the pharmacy gives you the wrong medication, and you have an allergic reaction to the one you have been given.
After this, the district nurse could be visiting to perhaps change your dressings. They could make a mistake with how they do this, make your injury worse and prolong your recovery.
All through the treatment you are given, whether it is for any injury or any illness, something could go wrong, and you could want to make an injury claim in East Dorset because of it.
Making an injury claim in East Dorset for medical negligence
There are many different medical professionals from whom you could seek treatment, and although we are luckier than most because they are more highly trained in the UK, they are human and they sometimes make mistakes.
The consequences of this can be dire, and the original problem could be made worse, or a new condition created.
Innocent victims suffer greatly because of the errors of some medical professionals and legally they are entitled to compensation for the extra suffering they have been causes.
At Accident Advice Helpline, among the many thousands of claimants we help helped over the last 14 years, many have made a claim for medical negligence.
Although millions of patients pass through their hands every year, and are very grateful for the treatment they have received, medical mistakes are more common than people realise, the NHS being one of the largest payers of compensation in the country.
Of course the NHS are not the only ones that settle medical negligence claims, there are many that are settled by insurance companies as well. Professional indemnity insurance, although not a legal requirement, is something that any sensible medical professional will buy.
This gives them financial cover should a patient make an injury claim in East Dorset for medical negligence against them.
