Although most people who enter hospital do so in an attempt to improve their health, sometimes this doesn’t always happen. Although it isn’t inconceivable that someone who is already ill could contract a virus whilst in hospital, it isn’t only patients who are affected.
If you are visiting someone in hospital, for example, you too could be exposed to dangerous viruses or germs if the hospital isn’t cleaned or maintained to an appropriate standard. You could enter the premises relatively healthy and contract an illness.
Similarly, if any staff make an error or put you in danger, you could suffer an injury as a result. For example, porters may be transporting heavy equipment or beds whilst you’re in the building. If they were to collide with you or bump into you, you could suffer an injury as a result.
Can I make a claim for medical negligence?
Although most of the people who make a claim for medical negligence with injury solicitors in Watton will have been patients of some kind, injury solicitors could also help you if you were simply visiting the hospital at the time of the incident.
Similarly, if you work in a hospital environment and you suffered an injury whilst at work which wasn’t your fault, injury solicitors could help you to make a compensation claim against your employers.
Although medical negligence claims can be somewhat complex, with help from a personal injury law firm it should be possible for you to make a successful claim. However, if you do want to obtain compensation for your injuries, it’s important that you don’t leave it too late to start your claim. Generally, injury solicitors are able to help claimants who have been hurt within the last three years, so providing you start your claim within this timeframe it should be possible for you to obtain compensation.
