Guidance through your A&E negligence claim
Accident and emergency departments are often chaotic due to shortages of medical staff, however this doesn’t mean that you should receive inadequate treatment during your visit.
When we visit A&E we put our trust in the staff there to look after us and treat us in the best way possible.
If you have experienced negligent treatment when in A&E, we may be able to help you make a claim.
You might have been left to wait for hours when your injury or illness was clearly urgent and then become iller as a result. However you’ve suffered, we can help you get back on track by getting you the compensation you need.
Types of A&E negligence
You might have received care that you didn’t need, or not received care that you did need.
A few examples of A&E negligence might be:
- Not referring you for appropriate tests
- Reading the results of tests wrong
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Improperly recording test results
This list doesn’t cover everything, and there are many other incidents which would be classed as A&E negligence. If you think you have experienced poor treatment which has made you sicker as a result then we can help you.
We know that filing a claim may not feel like the most important thing to you right now because you want to focus on getting better. However, with our help you can fully focus on recovering whilst also being free of financial burdens.
When you can make a claim
We know that staff in A&E departments are rarely negligent on purpose, however if you are unfortunate enough to fall ill due to their actions or mistakes then you deserve to be compensated.
Medical negligence can have a serious impact on your health and wellbeing. You are entitled to a high standard of care, so if you feel like you haven’t received this then we can help you make a claim for compensation and begin to move forward.
Our priority is to help clients like you to get your life back on track and get compensated, so that you can look forward to the future without having to worry about your finances.
Our team of expert solicitors can help you get compensated for any problems or poor treatment you’ve experienced in an A&E department which made you more ill or slowed your recovery.
Some A&E mistakes are caused by errors or delays in making a prognosis, whereas others occur when a condition is not treated correctly.
Even in a busy department, we expect to receive a high standard of treatment.
When this care falls short you may be entitled to claim compensation. Our team are here to help you if you’ve fallen ill as a result of substandard treatment you’ve experienced in A&E.
We can help you move forward
We understand that suffering illness or injury due to negligent treatment you received in A&E can cause great distress for you and your family. This is why we want to let you focus on recovery whilst we put your claim in motion.
On top of the physical and emotional pain and trauma of the original medical issue, you might also be unable to work which could cause you to worry about money.
We understand how stressful this is and what you’re going through, but that’s why we’re here to help you.
We can help you receive compensation, which will put financial worries to rest and enable you to look forward to your future and focus on recovery.
Don’t let your bad experience of A&E take over your life – let us help you get the result you deserve so you can move onwards and upwards stress-free.
