Every day thousands of us put our faith in the abilities of those people working within the medical sectors to ensure that we are taken care of and any problems we are having health-wise are dealt with. But problems can arise even in this arena and at Accident Advice Helpline along with our solicitors in Pevensey Bay, we deal with clients who have been injured or left injured because of clinical malpractice. Clinical malpractice does not mean however that a doctor or nurse has caused your injury (although that cannot be ruled out) so here is a brief list of some of the issues that can fall into that category.
- Falling or slipping whilst at hospital
- Tripping over equipment that has been left unattended
- Mistakes made during theatre
- Misdiagnosis or untimely diagnosis
- The provision of poor medical advice
- Poor hygiene resulting in infection
If you have suffered injury, discomfort or stress as a result of any of the aforementioned then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Our solicitors in Pevensey Bay are on hand to provide you with the help and advice you need to make an informed judgement as to whether or not a claim is valid. It is important to remember that your injuries sustained may not be the direct result of a doctor or nurse and could be put down to poor training for other clinical staff.
