We usually only visit our doctors, or any other medical professional, if we are ill or injured, and of course if we are pregnant. We trust them to treat us correctly and hope that whatever our problem is it will start to improve. It can be quite a shock to discover that this does not happen, not because the treatment just does not work as well as you hoped, but because you were treated wrongly.
Medical negligence and making an injury claim in Rotherham
Medical negligence is as much a personal injury as any other, and it does not matter if the mistreatment is to your mind or body. If someone in the medical profession gets your treatment wrong, you could be entitled to compensation and should be talking to Accident Advice Helpline about making an injury claim in Rotherham.
Medical negligence claims are among the most complicated of all personal injury claims, but with over 14 years’ experience of making successful claims behind us, they are no problem for our solicitors and lawyers.
The mistakes medical professionals can make that can lead to an injury claim in Rotherham
There is no end to the medical mistakes that can be made. From misdiagnosis to amputating the wrong limb, these errors occur all the time. Millions of patients pass through the hands of doctors, hospitals, dentists, opticians and other medical professionals every year with no problems at all, most of them very grateful for the remedy they have been given.
But that is no consolation to you if you are the victim of a medical error and have your illness made worse, or a new one created, because of their incompetence.
Just imagine how ill you could be if the chemist gives you the wrong medication. If it is one you have not had before, you might not realise it is wrong, but you could have an allergic reaction to it, or it could make you ill by upsetting something else in your body that works perfectly fine, until it is given something it should not have.
There are literally hundreds of things that can go wrong and as long as you can prove that there is more than a 50% chance that the medical professional mistreated you, then you can make an injury claim in Rotherham for compensation.
Making an injury claim in Rotherham for medical negligence
Usually, the best way to prove your claim, if the medical professional does not admit they were at fault, is by obtaining specialist medical reports in your area of injury or illness. If the specialist agrees that you were mistreated then you have cause for a claim. But if it is their opinion that you were treated perfectly correctly, then the medical professional will have no case to answer to.
If you are not happy with the treatment you have received, call Accident Advice Helpline on our freephone number, 0800 180 4123, and discuss your case with our friendly advisors. They will ensure that all the correct steps are taken and give you peace of mind that your claim will not be mistreated in any way.
