Do you need to make a no win no fee East Lothian claim after undergoing acupuncture treatment?
Acupuncture treatment involves the stimulation of particular points on a person’s body. Often, this treatment is carried out using small needles, but practitioners can also use heat, pressure or even lasers to stimulate acupressure points. Although the evidence relating to the efficacy of acupuncture has been criticised, many people claim that acupuncture is a very efficient form of pain relief and it has been used to treat a number of conditions.
If you are considering undergoing acupuncture, it is essential that you find an experienced and qualified practitioner. In addition to this, you may want to consult your doctor to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for the treatment and that acupuncture won’t interfere with any existing treatments or medications that you’re taking.
When people undergo acupuncture, they don’t often suffer very serious side effects. Whilst some people find it extremely beneficial, others don’t get the results they are looking for but their condition isn’t worsened either.
However, if the practitioner does something wrong or makes a mistake, there is a chance that a patient could be hurt. If, for example, they used needles which were the wrong size, people may suffer harm as a result. Similarly, if they were using heat to stimulate acupressure points and the heat was too high, a patient could suffer burns.
If you have been hurt or injured whilst undergoing this treatment, you may want to make a no win no fee East Lothian claim against the practitioner who was responsible. Depending on the type of injury you’ve sustained, you may need to seek medical treatment. If you have received treatment, it’s likely that your medical records will show this and this may support your no win no fee East Lothian compensation claim.
However, if you have been hurt but haven’t had to seek treatment, you may want to make your own record of the injuries or take photographic evidence of the injuries so that these can be used in your no win no fee East Lothian claim, if need be.
