Accident & Emergency Claims

Getting the correct emergency treatment is essential to ensure a patient’s best chance of recovery. If something goes wrong at the A&E department of a hospital, or when the ambulance services are attending a patient, there may be a claim for negligence.

The accident & emergency department is a pillar of the UK healthcare system, however, it is also one of the most fast paced and error prone due to the high-pressure environment. Whilst many people receive an excellent level of care, others are not so fortunate and the results can be physically, emotionally and financially devastating. Our team of clinical negligence solicitors have the knowledge and expertise to help you seek compensation through an accident & emergency claim.

Negligent accident & emergency treatment can include:

  • mistakes made by paramedics
  • delay in ambulance attending
  • failure to x-ray
  • failure to do correct tests
  • failure to admit as an in-patient
  • failure to take proper observations of the patient
  • failure to do scansfailure to identify stroke patients needing immediate treatment

We are able to help many of our clients on a no win no fee basis. If you have been impacted by A&E negligence and wish to bring a claim, contact our experienced team of medical negligence solicitors on 0800 2800 421 or submit a quick contact form to arrange a callback.
