Will professional indemnity insurance pay your injury claim in Rotherhithe?
Professional indemnity insurance is intended to cover professionals as they carry out their business, in case an injury claim in Rotherhithe is lodged against them while they are carrying out their profession.
Our doctors and an injury claim in Rotherhithe
We have no choice but to trust our doctors — they know far more about our health and illnesses than we ever will. If one of them makes a mistake that causes harm to a patient, they could well find themselves facing an injury claim in Rotherhithe. There is no legal requirement for them to have professional indemnity insurance, but if they are wise they will have. It is this that would pay for the compensation rather than having to pay out of their own pocket. The General Medical Council strongly advise all their members to have this insurance.
Dentists and opticians need professional indemnity insurance
The College of Optometrists and the General Dental Council both say that their members should have professional indemnity cover. If dentists or doctors run their own practices, the insurance needs to extend to cover any staff they may employee, as they are responsible for any mistakes made by employees that cause harm to a patient and may result in an injury claim in Rotherhithe. They should also ensure that any locums or relief staff they use have adequate insurance in place.
If your doctor, dentist or optician gets it wrong, we will help you to make your personal injury compensation claim.
