Our health system is envied all over the world. Free at the point of access, without needing to find the money to pay, you can make an appointment to see your doctor or even receive emergency medical care when needed.
No matter where you access medical care in the UK, it should meet the same high standards. Of course, the many times we access the service is for appointments to complete various procedures, minor or major. When we enter a hospital, we have expectations; occasionally, in some cases, the standards of care we have come to expect are not met. Many clients that seek the advice and expert legal help of our injury solicitor in Carrbridge is when the impact of this medical or clinical negligence causes them injury or suffering.
No one likes to think of claiming compensation from the NHS or any other medical service but, if you have been let down and are paying the price for it, then you may have no other option.
Our specialist injury solicitor in Carrbridge will be able to tell you more, should you decide to continue with your compensation claim, regarding medical negligence:
Your claim for compensation must show negligence in either the care and/or management of the care being delivered to you.
There are two factors that your injury solicitor in Carrbridge will need to examine thoroughly:
- Liability – in other words, a medical professional (or a group of professionals) acted in a way that they should not have done so. We have expectations of the professionalism and actions of nurses, health care workers, doctors, consultants and many others and when this falls short, the results can be catastrophic
- Causation – this is the effects of this negligence on you, as the patient. In order to be successful, the injury solicitor in Carrbridge will need to show you suffered an injury, physical or emotional, that you would not have suffered have this negligence not occurred.
Read this short extract as it may aid you understanding:
Anaesthesia consists of making sure the patients is relaxed and asleep during the procedure; however, the level of conscious needs to be deep. Incorrect or careless administration of drugs before the operation may not place the patient under the necessary level of conscious needed. The patient was ‘aware’ and conscious during the first 2 hours of the procedure. Although unable to feel pain, she was acutely aware of what was happening but unable to communicate. Only when looking to perform pain reflex as part of the procedure did the theatre staff realise her predicament. If the protocols had been followed correctly in theatre, this would not have happened to this patient.
If safety protocols have not been followed and you have been let down, let AAH and our injury solicitor in Carrbridge help you.
