A reperfusion injury often occurs when there is a lack of blood supply, causing tissue damage. This can occur in a number of different situations, and the effects can often be very serious. When you have been impacted by such a situation, seek out a doctor.
Sometimes, a reperfusion injury can take place due to no fault of your own. For instance, you might find that you’ve been affected by such an injury due to medical negligence. Though not the only way that this could occur, it does represent one of the ways in which the injury could take place.
Claiming for a reperfusion injury
If you have been affected by a reperfusion injury which took place due to no fault of your own, it often helps to seek out a personal injury lawyer who can help you to make a compensation claim for this serious injury.
Accident Advice Helpline might be able to help you with this, and the best way to find out is to call our team of advisors. When speaking to the team, you’ll want to keep in mind that any figures provided are just estimates, and that nothing can be guaranteed in terms of what you might be able to claim.
For those looking to make a compensation claim you should act quickly, as more often than not you only have three years from the point at which an accident takes place in which to make a claim. However, this could vary, and depending on the situation you might be given more time in which to make a claim.
When making a claim, you’ll find that most of it can be done over the phone, although it could very well be the case that you’re asked to attend a medical assessment.
If you’re making a claim based on medical negligence, or something of the sort, it is important to keep track of everything that you were told to do. This might mean recording your medical expenses and instructions provided by the doctor.
Though you might be suffering at the moment from a reperfusion injury, you should keep in mind that if it was caused due to no fault of your own there could be some light at the of the tunnel, as you have a chance to make a compensation claim and treat the injury, or at least cover some of the costs while you are recovering from the injury.
