Undergoing medical treatment can be a daunting experience. You are putting your life and your safety in the hands of a complete stranger and having to trust that they know what they are doing. For the vast majority of people undergoing medical treatment within the UK there no complications, either during their procedure or after it. However, medical professionals are only human and sometimes mistakes can be made, leading to further complications or the need for additional surgery.
If you have been affected by a medical procedure that has not gone according to plan as a result of the negligence of the medical or clinical professionals performing the procedure, you might be able to contact an injury lawyer in Witham and file a claim for compensation.
The First Steps
The first thing you should do is speak to the medical establishment where the treatment or procedure was conducted. Highlight your concerns and make a formal complaint if you feel it is necessary. In some instances this will resolve any issues that you have, as it may well turn out that the complications were anticipated or could not have been foreseen.
Should the result of an internal investigation demonstrate that as you suspect someone is directly responsible for the complications you have been exposed to, then you might want to think about pursuing a compensation claim with an injury lawyer in Witham.
