    Medical negligence claims

    If you are ill, then you go to see your doctor. But what if your doctor’s diagnosis is wrong. Alternatively, what if your pharmacist gives you the wrong medicine, your dentist pulls out the wrong tooth, or your optician messes up your laser eye surgery?

    Well, if any of these things happen to you then you should contact a personal injury lawyer in Priddy in order to make a medical negligence claim at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Professionals should be covered by their insurance

    Your medical practitioners should have professional indemnity insurance. In fact, their professional bodies either insist on it or highly recommend that they are covered. The policy covers whoever works for them as well, so if your local practice nurse gets something wrong then they will be covered by the doctor’s insurance.

    The effects of medical negligence

    Medical negligence can have long-term physical and psychological effects. You go to see a medical professional because you are already ill or have been injured, and if they do not treat you correctly then your condition could be made worse, or a new one caused. There have been cases in which the misdiagnosis of an illness has meant that by the time the illness is known, it has been too late to treat the illness and the victim has lost their life.

    There have also been cases of hospitals amputating the wrong limb, and of nurses taking tests incorrectly and producing flawed results. All of these things, and many more, constitute medical negligence.
