Accident & Emergency departments are often the first point of contact for those who have sustained an injury. Sadly, strained resources and overcrowded waiting rooms mean that those placed on the front line to help the injured sometimes place patients at a greater risk of medical negligence.
In some unfortunate cases the severity of a patient’s condition can often be overlooked as departments struggle to cope with an increased demand for medical attention. If you believe you or a loved one has been inadequately treated whilst in the care of A&E staff you may be eligible to pursue a compensation claim.
If you believe you have sustained an injury due to the negligent actions of a medical professional whilst in the care of A&E it is essential you contact a solicitor at the earliest opportunity. As with all medical negligence cases, compensation claims are subject to strict statutory time limits and must be made within three years of the date of incident.
