It isn’t just physical disabilities either. Claims for psychological damage and disability are also common. In many ways, the mental disorders arising from poor quality health service diagnosis and therapies can be even more debilitating than bodily ones. They rob the individual of their mental well-being, as well as their ability to earn a living. In all cases of disability caused by medical malpractice, it is the patient who suffers and it should be the medical practitioners and their institutions that should compensate them for that suffering. Mistakes do happen! No matter how mindful doctors and nurses are when treating patients.
According to their Hippocratic oath the first duty of doctors everywhere, is ‘to do no harm’. No doctor intentionally goes about causing disabilities in their patients. Yet medical negligence claims help line Medical Negligence Assist, deal with cases of disability caused to patients by doctors, nurses and other medical staff because of mistakes and neglect on a daily basis. Disability claims because of malpractice in the health service are settled daily, among all the other civil claims in UK law courts.
Prevention is always better than cure and the only way to prevent medical malpractice is to keep the practitioners on their toes by letting them know they will pay for any and all mistakes they make. This has the added general benefit of spreading the news. The more we know about malpractice claims the more mindful we make our doctors.
