Generally, you visit the doctor because you are ill or injured, or maybe because you are pregnant. You trust them and expect them to treat you correctly, what you do not expect is for them to make a mistake that makes you worse or creates a totally new problem for you. But this does happen, and it is why victims make a medical negligence injury claim in Coedpoeth.
Other medical professionals that might be the cause of you making a medical negligence injury claim in Coedpoeth
Doctors are not the only ones that make mistakes, it could be that a hospital gets it wrong, a dentist, a pharmacist or anyone else in the medical profession.
Their mistakes can have dire consequences for the victims, sometimes serious illnesses being missed or mistreated until it is too late to save the patient.
Between them, they deal with many millions of illnesses and injuries every year without any problems, but just occasionally they get it wrong and then the victim legally can claim compensation by making a medical negligence injury claim in Coedpoeth.
Some of the mistakes that have been made in the past include:
- Pharmacists giving in the wrong medication or the wrong dose of the correct medication. Just think if you were taking the wrong medicine and had an allergic reaction. Your doctor would probably be aware of this and would not have prescribed something that they knew you would react badly to, then someone else gives it you by mistake. You could be made really ill.
- Practice nurses have been known to take smear test incorrectly, which then give flawed results. It can take time for this to be discovered, and by then the illness could be too far advanced for the problem to be solved.
- Opticians will not usually injure you while carrying out a normal eye test, but mistakes are made when they are carrying out laser eye surgery. Over 100, 000 people have this done every year in the UK, and most are them are very pleased with the results. But for some the damage that had been caused makes their vision worse, and although the procedure can be done a second time to try and correct the mistake, that does not always work.
These three examples have all happened to someone at sometime in the past, and all of the victims would have been entitled to make a medical negligence injury claim in Coedpoed.
