    Injury Lawyer in Coatbridge: Claiming Compensation After an Accident Due to Medical Negligence

    A lot of people don’t realise that they can claim compensation if they’ve suffered a bad injury or accident as a result of medical negligence. For minor accidents and smaller things in a hospital setting, it’s very unlikely that you’ll be able to file a formal complaint; however, if the injury is serious enough, you can indeed claim some compensation if your case is successful. Here are some of the main points to remember.

    • A duty of care is owed to the patient

    The doctors, nurses and other medical professionals need to carry out the work they do within a medical setting to a very high standard, and failing to do this could result in the patient being eligible to claim some compensation. A duty of care is owed to the patient, and if the treatment is not carried out properly and patients suffer, then the professionals are in the wrong.

    •  Can you make a claim?

    You can make a claim if you have suffered due to negligence in the medical profession, whether it was at the dentist, doctor’s surgery or in a hospital. Receiving some compensation may enable you to use the money to correct any problems which have been caused, for example, if you have to travel distances to a specialist or pay for private treatment.
