Accident and Emergency Claims
Contact us for free if accident and emergency staff have failed in their duty of care to you as a patient
The Accident and Emergency department of a hospital is often a very busy environment with people coming and going at all hours; however, you should expect the same high standard of care whenever you are treated
A&E visits may be due to painful and inconvenient injuries or life threatening injuries, and mistakes that are made by medical staff in accident and emergency departments can have very serious consequences.
Examples of medical negligence in accident and emergency include:
- Misdiagnosis causing further injury or prolonging recovery time
- Delay in providing care, leading to avoidable injuries
- Misinterpreting test results or X-rays
- Sending patients home when they needed additional treatment
- Mistakes in dosage or administration of pain relief or other drugs
If you’re not sure whether or not you have valid grounds to make a claim, you can call us today on 0800 540 4258 free of charge to talk about your options, including making a no win no fee medical negligence claim.
What happens when I call?
When you call us, you’ll talk to one of our legally trained advisors who will ask you some questions about your accident and emergency claim. Everything you tell them will be kept confidential and they understand the stress that you are going through.
If you’re eligible to make a medical negligence claim, our advisors can transfer your call direct to a specialist medical negligence solicitor who will handle your claim. Your solicitors are there for you, answering your questions, helping you with paperwork, arranging a medical assessment and organising your rehabilitation.
If you win your claim, you can use your compensation to pay for additional treatment, replace lost earnings and cover any other out of pocket expenses that occurred. If your claim isn’t successful, it won’t cost you a penny.
