    Injury lawyer in Smithfield

    Smithfield is an area in the City of London, in the ward of Farringdon, situated in the north-west part of the City. There are quite a few important institutions in the area, including a hospital. Just like everywhere else, hospital injuries happen in Smithfield. This can be due to a lot of reasons, though the most common type of injury that is claimed for is due to negligence.

    Hospital negligence is very risky and costly, with most of the injured party always being compensated if there is enough proof for the claim. However, this is not easy, as most hospitals do not like to take liability for the compensation claim, especially if the injury was fatal.

    If you have found yourself in a similar situation, then you need an established law firm to help you claim. Although your first thought may be to contact an injury lawyer in Smithfield you could also use Accident Advice Helpline.

    Causes of hospital accidents

    Lack of proper skills: If the doctors or the nurses lack the proper skills and training for a certain situation, this can be very dangerous. For example they may wrongly diagnose a patient. In this case the patient should look for an injury lawyer to make sure they are compensated.

    Unclean facilities: If the hospital does not have clean facilities or equipment that is required to properly treat a patient they may end up carrying germs from patient to patient which could lead to serious illnesses.

    Fatigue: When the doctors and nurses are overworked, they are prone to make mistakes which can lead to accidents, therefore, causing injuries.

    Why you may need an injury lawyer

    1. Every hospital is responsible for making sure that all the patients get the treatment they deserve. If this hasn’t happened then an injury lawyer can sue the hospital for compensation on the patients behalf.
    2. Hospital injuries are serious, and in some cases can be fatal. Whatever the case, the hospital is liable to compensate for the damages. The amount of compensation will depend on the severity of the case. An injury lawyer can help with estimating this, or you can go to Accident Advice Helpline’s website to take the 30 second test to find out.
