If your doctor, dentist, optician, pharmacist or hospital messes up, you may need to make an injury claim in Rock
We have to trust our medical practitioners to take care of our health and make us feel better when we feel ill. Generally, they get it right, but they are human and sometimes make mistakes. If this happens to you and you suffer because of it, you may be able to make an injury claim in Rock.
What they could do wrong that would result in an injury claim in Rock
Your doctor could:
- Misdiagnose your illness;
- Diagnose your illness too late; or
- Prescribe the wrong medication or medical device.
Your pharmacist could:
- Give you the wrong medication; or
- Give you the wrong dose of the correct medication.
Your dentist could:
- Pull the wrong teeth; or
- Slip with the drill and cut your face.
Your optician could:

Any of these mistakes, and many others that happen, could result in you making an injury claim in Rock.
The majority of them will be insured
Most medical practitioners will have professional indemnity insurance. In fact, their professional bodies either insist on it or highly recommend that they are covered. The policy covers whoever works for them as well, so if your local practice nurse gets something wrong she will be covered by the doctor’s insurance.
