A&E Negligence Claims

Here at AWH Solicitors, we have plenty of experience helping people with A&E negligence claims. We understand that suffering because of poor treatment you received in an A&E department can be traumatic.

We’re here to help you get compensated for any illness or injury you have experienced in A&E so that you can look forward to your future.

Guidance Through Your A&E Negligence Claim

If you have experienced negligent treatment when in A&E, we may be able to help you make a claim for compensation. At AWH our medical negligence solicitors can guide you through your no win, no fee A&E negligence claim with care and expertise.

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 been treated poorly, leaving you with further injury or illness, you are owed compensation.

For example; 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 that 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 Can You 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.

How AWH Can Help You With Your A&E Negligence Claim

Our Expertise

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.

How 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.

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 for medical negligence, which will put financial worries to rest and enable you to look forward to your future and focus on recovery.
