    Injury claim in Rushden


    Can I make an injury claim in Rushden for medical negligence?

    What happens when we get ill? We go to our GP or the hospital. If we have any other problems, we visit our dentists, chemists or opticians. But if one of those people gets it wrong, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Rushden for compensation.

    Hospital negligence

    The hospital nurses and doctors are human, and sometimes they make a mistake. If this happens to you, an injury claim in Rushden would be possible. Many thousands of patients are treated in our hospitals every day without a problem, and there are countless people who are thankful to them for life-saving procedures.

    Chemist gives you the incorrect dose of medicine

    If the wrong medication or the wrong dose of the correct medication is given, the consequences can be dire. Our high street pharmacies have in place lots of rules and regulations to ensure that the correct medication is given. If you were made ill by the incorrect medication, you would be entitled to make an injury claim in Rushden.

    Medical negligence by your GP

    If your GP ignores important symptoms, misdiagnoses the health problem or prescribes the wrong medication, you could become seriously ill. This would amount to medical negligence for which you would be able to make an injury claim in Rushden.

    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.

    Are they insured?

    All of the above professionals have trained for many years and most are very experienced and you will have no problem. Occasionally, however, things go wrong. For this eventuality they all have insurance cover, in case of a personal injury compensation claim.
