Medical negligence injury claim in Mayfield
If you are feeling under the weather, who is the first person you go to see – your GP. If you have toothache you visit the dentist and if you need your eye testing you visit the optician. Along with pharmacists and hospitals, they are all medical professionals that we trust, we have to. But they are all human, they can make mistakes and if one of them does and you are harmed because of their mistake, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Mayfield.
GP misdiagnosis could mean an injury claim in Mayfield
If your GP gets it wrong, the consequences could be dire. The wrong treatment could be given which could make your worse, or the correct treatment could be delayed meaning you will suffer for longer than you needed to and in some cases would mean the condition that was treatable, no longer is. In this situation you may be able to make an injury claim in Mayfield.
Pharmacist gives you the wrong medication
After visiting your GP, you next port of call could well be the pharmacy to collect the prescribed medication. Our pharmacies have lots of rules and regulations to follow to ensure they give you the correct tablets or medicine and generally they are followed strictly. However, sometimes mistakes do happen and the wrong medication, or the wrong dose of the correct medication, is given and the patient can become very ill. If this happens to you there would be a case for an injury claim in Mayfield.
Our hospitals are wonderful
In spite of the bad press our hospitals really are pretty wonderful. The media only ever reports the mistakes, you will never see a report saying such and such a hospital dealt with 3000 patients today and they all went home feeling much better. One of the reasons for this is because good news doesn’t sell, in comparison to the number of people they treat every day, there are very few mistakes. Problems do occur though and if you are involved in one of these you may be able to make an injury claim in Mayfield.
Our dentists are better than most, but can still get it wrong
The UK dentists are generally a higher standard than in other countries but if they slip with the drill, or pull the wrong teeth, you would want to make an injury claim in Mayfield.
You are not at much risk if you go to have your eyes tested but you are at more of a risk if you are having laser eye treatment. If this goes wrong, you could lose the sight in the eye that is being treated.
