We all have to have faith and trust in our doctors and dentists etc. Otherwise we would not visit them if they kept on getting things wrong so we would be ill a lot more. The people in the medical profession in the UK are highly trained professionals and the majority of them are dedicated to they work that they do.
Although, we are all human and we all make mistakes. However if someone in the medical profession makes a mistake this can then lead to terrible consequences. If this has happened to you, you may want to use the services of the solicitors in Mablethorpe at Accident Advice Helpline, so they can help you make an injury compensation claim.
Here are the mistakes that could happen and may result in you using the solicitors in Mablethorpe
If your doctor makes a mistake, for example, they misdiagnose your illness, they diagnose it too late and your illness is too far gone for you to have treatment, or they could give you they wrong medication, then the consequences could be dire.
What if your chemist gave you the wrong medication or the wrong dose?
Your chemist could make a mistake by either giving you the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of the right medicine, again this would have terrible consequences.
What if your dentist pull out the wrong tooth?
Your dentist could also make a mistake by either pulling out the wrong tooth, or they could slip while the drill is in your mouth and they could cut your face. Both of these could also be a terrible accident to suffer.
What if your optician missed an eye disease?
Your optician could also make a mistake for example, they could miss an eye disease or they could laser the wrong eye. In both of these cases it could end up with you loosing some of your sight, or maybe even going blind.
What if the hospital made a mistake?
Your hospital could make a mistake by amputating the wrong limb, or they could accidentally let you fall out of bed while they are trying to lift you out of it.
They are not far fetched
Some of these scenarios might sound a bit far fetched, but they are all things that have actually happened in the past, so they could happen again.
They all should be insured
In the majority of cases the medical practitioners would have insurance. The insurance they would have is called professional indemnity insurance. The medical professionals governing bodies either insist of them being insured or highly recommend it, just for these instances.
The policy also covers whoever works for them as well, so if your local practice nurse gets something wrong, she will be covered by the doctors insurance.
