Accident & Emergency Claims

When things don’t go right, we are here to get you the answers you deserve.

Accident and Emergency (A&E) doctors and nursing staff are accountable for the care of an increasing number of patients and are responsible for diagnosing and treating various injuries and illnesses, often under a lot of pressure. Over recent years waiting times in A&E departments nationwide have steadily increased.

Unfortunately, because of a high-pressured environment, waiting times and delays in receiving treatment, mistakes can happen resulting in patients suffering avoidable harm. This can be due to:

  • failure to take a thorough history and carry out a detailed examination
  • misdiagnosis
  • delay in diagnosis
  • failure to diagnose
  • failure to carry out further tests and investigations, for example, x-rays or scans that might have detected your injury or illness

If you or a loved one think you have suffered avoidable harm as a result of care and / or treatment in A&E, our experienced medical (clinical) negligence specialists can advise whether you have a claim.

When things don’t go right with your medical treatement, we are here to help you get the answers you deserve and the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
