    Solicitors in Kingston upon Hull

    The people who we associate as being medical professionals are doctors, dentists, nurses, opticians and anyone else from whom we have to seek treatment if we are unwell or injured. Most medical practitioners will have their own professional indemnity insurance if they are self-employed, or will be covered by the insurance of their employers.

    However they are covered, if they make a mistake and you suffer because of it, it will normally be this insurance company that settles the claim, and you may want to use solicitors in Kingston upon Hull to obtain your compensation.

    Claiming compensation with solicitors in Kingston upon Hull

    The majority of professional bodies encourage their members to have professional indemnity insurance. If a form of medical negligence takes place, these bodies tend to cover the cost of any legal action their members face. Whilst this won’t necessarily make it easier to make a claim, it does mean that your solicitors in Kingston upon Hull will have a point of contact from the outset.

    It also highlights the benefits of working with an experienced law firm. Rather than having to liaise with various organisations yourself, you’ll be able to focus on your recovery whilst an expert lawyer works on your behalf.

    Making a claim

    In the UK, we are very lucky. Our medical professionals are highly trained in their fields, more so than those in a lot of other countries are. However, they are only human, and mistakes will happen, including:

    • Laser eye surgery going wrong and affecting your sight;
    • Tests being taken incorrectly, resulting in flawed diagnosis;
    • Patients being dropped;
    • Wrong teeth being pulled or a drill slipping and cutting your face;
    • Wrong limbs being amputated;
    • Patients not being properly cared for, or abused;
    • Misdiagnosis; and
    • Delays in diagnosis.

    If an illness is misdiagnosed then this can have terrible consequences for the victim, as they may not receive the treatment they need. It can also give the victim much stress and anxiety when they realise what has happened. If this happens to you, you may want to contact solicitors in Kingston upon Hull as you could be eligible to obtain compensation.
