Do you need to contact Monmouthshire, accident claim solicitors after being hurt by faulty medical equipment?
When doctors, nurses and surgeons diagnose and treat patients, they do so using a range of equipment and various different types of medications. In some instances, this equipment is used in an emergency situation to help save lives, prevent injuries from worsening and to ensure that patients aren’t in any pain.
If the equipment fails to work, or if it doesn’t work properly, patients could die needlessly, people could be subject to misdiagnosis and people may not receive the treatment they require. If, for example, a patient needs to be resuscitated but the defibrillator fails to work, it may be impossible to save their life. Alternatively, if an MRI scanner was to fail to work properly, it may not highlight abnormalities, which need to be treated, and a patient may be misdiagnosed or be given an incorrect clean bill of health.
