Personal injury compensation claims
When most people think of personal injury claims linked to hospitals, it’s likely that the issue of medical negligence will be one of the first things that springs to mind. That’s understandable, as many personal injury law firms push this in their advertising campaigns. However, you may be able to use injury lawyers in The Lizard in order to win compensation from an NHS trust or private clinic if you were injured as the result of an accident that was not your fault, either as a patient or a visitor to a hospital.
Hospital accidents and injury lawyers in The Lizard
Many NHS hospitals are housed in old, decaying buildings that have seen better days. This can mean that they are difficult to maintain and could give rise to somebody suffering from an accident that was not their fault. Problems with flooring or staircases could result in a patient or visitor suffering a nasty fall and sustaining an injury to the head. If it could be proved that said fall was the result of the hospital in question failing to maintain its walkways adequately, the person who suffered the injury might be able to use the services of a good 100% no-win, no-fee solicitor in order to sue for compensation.
If you were being treated in a private clinic and a member of the cleaning staff left a large pool of water outside of your room, causing you to slip upon your exit and break your leg, if you could prove negligence then you might be able to hire a no-win, no-fee solicitor and take legal action. You may even be able to take action if you were to contract food poisoning from hospital food. While hospital meals have a pretty poor reputation, you don’t expect them to make you feel worse than you already were before you were admitted.
