    Personal Injury Claims in Waveney

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Waveney

    It is very rare that you would make an appointment at your doctors just to pass the time of day and ask if he had a good weekend. Your doctor would not be very happy if you did this either. You go to visit them because you are feeling unwell, have an injury that needs attention or perhaps because you are pregnant.

    The same applies to hospitals, dentists, opticians and all other medical professionals, you don’t visit them for the fun of it but because you need their help.

    Generally, we take their advice and any medication they prescribe because we trust their abilities to deal with our health problems, but just sometimes they get it wrong and victims are caused much stress and made worse because of their errors. In this situation, victims can make personal injury claims in Waveney to get the compensation they are legally entitled to.

    Settling your Medical Negligence Claim

    Last year, the Telegraph reported that personal injury claims in Waveney against both private and NHS medical professions was on the increase, and that almost one fifth of the total NHS budget is spent by settling compensation claims. It said that although there was no doubt that victims were becoming more aware of their legal right to compensation, the most worrying thing is whether the increase is because of a drop in the standard of healthcare being provided.

    If your mistreatment is by an NHS medical professional, the NHS will settle your compensation out of their own funds. If you used private medical care, they will be insured to protect them against any claims, and it will be this professional indemnity insurance that settles the claim.
