For most people, having medical or dental treatment is a straightforward matter. But there are unfortunate occasions when things aren’t carried out to the highest possible standard. When that happens, your injuries may deteriorate further. You may even experience new pain and have to seek additional treatment.
You are entitled to expect that professionals who offer to carry out medical treatment will do so at the highest standard possible. This duty extends to the professional themselves, as well as to any other professional who may be giving assistance or related care.
In these cases, it is always open to you to consider making a claim for medical negligence. This means taking a case against the medical practitioner on the grounds that they were careless or reckless in your treatment and as a result you have continued to suffer. There are several things that will need to be proven and we can go through these with you at the outset of your claim.
If you think this type of claim might be applicable to you, then please do not delay and contact a solicitor immediately. A claimant must bring an action within two years of experiencing the injury or within two years of realising that the treatment has caused pain. For this reason, you should speak to a solicitor as soon as possible.
