A&E Compensation Claims

A&E Compensation Claims

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.

Legal Advice on A&E Compensation Claims

Although the prospect of contacting a solicitor can initially seem overwhelming, pursuing a claim for compensation is vital in ensuring that the correct risk assessments are in place for the benefit of patient welfare.

Common Accident & Emergency Claims

Despite high levels of training and patient care, medical errors can and do happen. In the event this does occur the results can be devastating, causing serious health implications. Due to the varied nature of medical conditions that enter as A&E admissions, the scope for claims is wide ranging. We have successfully acted on behalf of victims in the following circumstances:

  • Dismissing patients who should have been sent to another hospital or department
  • Failure to properly examine patients
  • Failure to identify life threatening health problems e.g. heart attack
  • Failure to send patients for x-rays
  • Misdiagnosis or late diagnosis
