Have doctors let you down?
Although we rely on members of the medical profession to assist us in times of illness or injury, sometimes their actions can make matters worse and can lead to people suffering even more harm. If for example, you doctor misdiagnoses you, your illness or injury could worsen unnecessarily and you could be subject to more pain and suffering that you would have if the diagnosis had been accurate in the first place. Whilst some cases of medical negligence can take place at a GP’s surgery, it can also occur within a hospital or medical clinic. There have even been reports of people undergoing unnecessary procedures or having the wrong parts of their body operated on because of medical negligence. This is when you need to talk to our personal injury solicitor in Meifod.
Although the majority of medical professionals would never set out to cause harm, they can still be held responsible if a negligent act causes a patient to suffer. If for example, it takes you longer to recover or you’re left with irreparable damage because of the incident, it may be important for you to seek redress.
