    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Injury lawyers in Prestbury

    Professional people need to have insurance cover, in case they make a mistake in the course of their profession and receive a personal injury compensation claim, from injury lawyers in Prestbury, against them.  This applies to all professionals and medical professionals are no exception.  The insurance that provides this cover is called professional indemnity.

    Most professional bodies insist or encourage their members to have professional indemnity insurance.  Such organisations as The General Medical Council, The College of Optometrists and The General Dental Council are examples of these.

    Settling the claim presented by injury lawyers in Prestbury

    If you have been harmed by the lack of, or wrong, treatment by a medical professional, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim, using injury lawyers in Prestbury.  It would be the providers of the professional indemnity insurance that settle the claim, your medical practitioner will not have to make payment out of their own pocket.

    If a professional is self employed, working just on their own, they only need cover for themselves.  If however, they employ people, such as nurses in a doctor’s surgery, they need to come within the scope of the cover as well, as do any locums they may use.  If it a doctors nurse, for instance, that makes the mistake, you would still want to make a personal injury claim, using injury lawyers in Prestbury.

    Our medical professionals or more highly trained than most

    In the UK our medical professionals are more highly trained than in a lot of other countries. However, they are all human and from time to time, mistakes are made.  If this happens to you, you may be able to make an injury claim. The sorts of things that can happen are:
