There may be a time in your life when you or a family member will have to make a medical negligence compensation claim. It does not matter if you live in Helmdon or in another part of the UK. This is usually because of a mistake that somebody has made in the medical profession in the way they have treated you.
This does not necessarily mean a doctor, it could be a dentist or an optician, for example. It could happen for several reasons, such as:
- The pharmacist could give you the wrong medication
- The optician could make a mistake with your eye treatment
- The doctor could misdiagnose your illness or mistreat your injury
- The hospital could treat the wrong ailment
- The dentist could damage your mouth
- The nurse could take the wrong blood test
Our medical professionals are all highly trained, better than in a lot of other countries, but they are human as well, and sometimes make mistakes. The consequences of a medical error can be dire and if it has happened to you, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Speaking to the solicitors in Helmdon at Accident Advice Helpline will help clarify that for you.
The calculation of your claim
Your claim will be calculated by several things. It depends on how bad your injury or illness is and how long it will take to heal, if at all. But also could include:
- Extra medical expenses
- Care costs if necessary
- Home adaptation costs if needed
- Pain and suffering
- Stress and anxiety
- Loss of earnings
- Childcare costs
- Travel expenses
- Any other cost or loss that is a result of the accident
