Medical negligence in Formby
Although a healthcare professional is normally the first person that you see in the event of a medical illness, unfortunately, they can also be the source of a medical negligence claim. Our GPs and doctors work closely with us to ensure that we receive the best possible medical treatment throughout any injuries that we might have, and although this is the case in the majority of situations, unfortunately cases of negligence do still occur.
If you feel that you have been the victim of negligence through no fault of your own, then you could look to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred as a result.
