Personal injury lawyer in Marston Moretaine for medical negligence
A professional person needs to have insurance to cover them because they could make a mistake in whatever profession they are in, and receive an injury claim from a personal injury lawyer in Marston Moretaine acting on behalf of the victim.
This applies to all professionals and medical professionals are no exception. The insurance that provides this cover is called professional indemnity.
Most professional bodies insist or require their members to have professional indemnity insurance. Such organisations as The General Medical Council, The College of Optometrists and The General Dental Council are examples of these.

- Laser eye surgery going wrong and affecting your sight

Their policy needs to cover everyone
If a professional is self-employed, working just on their own, they only need cover for themselves. If, however, they employ people, such as nurses in a doctor’s surgery, they need to come within the scope of the cover as well, as do any locums they may use. If it is a doctor’s nurse, for instance, that makes the mistake, you would still want to make a personal injury claim, using a personal injury lawyer in Marston Moretaine from Accident Advice Helpline.
