Chemist gives you the incorrect dose of medicine

Wrong tooth pulled out by the dentist
If they pull the wrong tooth or slip with the drill and cut your face, you could suffer a lot of pain. Everyone’s favourite person, the dentist generally does a very good job, and we are lucky in the UK because the standards of our dentists are higher than in a lot of other countries, but if this happened to you then you would need to make an injury claim in Rushden.
Laser eye treatment with the optician
If you are having laser eye surgery, the risks are high and accidents do happen. This is exactly why a lot of opticians will only operate on one eye at a time, because if something does go wrong then you will still have sight in the other eye. Having your eyes tested is fairly straightforward and you are not at much risk. However, if there was a problem with your laser eye surgery, an injury claim in Rushden would be in order.
