Stories highlighting cases of medical negligence are unfortunately all too common. For patients who sadly find themselves in this unfortunate position, the effects are long lasting and the physical injury is only part of the pain caused.
Many will experience significant financial hardship if their ability to return to work has been reduced or has become impossible due to their avoidable injury. Some will need to make significant home adaptations if they find themselves in a wheelchair as a result for example or require 24 hour care following the incident.
An injury suffered due to the negligence of medical staff in a hospital, a GP or even a pharmacist, can sadly change lives forever and can impact not only the individual, but also have a serious effect on wider family members and any dependents.
A physical or psychological injury caused as a result of the mistake of a medical professional can last long after the incident itself. For those who find themselves in these unfortunate circumstances, compensation is available to cover the essential costs incurred.
A return to work can become impossible following a significant injury or on-going long term care and rehabilitation may be required for which compensation is available.
