Accident and Emergency (A&E) Claims

Expert Solicitors To Advise On A&E Negligence Claims

Accident and emergency (or A&E) departments can be some of the most highly-pressured working environments for healthcare professionals. Despite generally high standards of service, mistakes can easily occur. If you suffer harm as a result of A&E care which does not meet required standards, you might be entitled to compensation.

Whilst it might be understandable for a mistake in A&E to happen, there is no excuse for your health being put at risk by negligent care. You have a right to compensation for any harm and losses which another person’s negligence has caused.

Truth Legal can help you to recover this compensation.

Making a compensation claim for A&E negligence

A&E compensations claims, and clinical negligence claims in general, can be complicated. They frequently involved detailed investigations and a great deal of evidence to prove your case.

Fortunately, Truth Legal has overcome such obstacles many times for our clients. We have the expertise to take claims forward and the tenacity to fight for as high a compensation award as possible.

For further information on what is involved in a clinical negligence claim, have a look at our clinical negligence claim page or get in touch with us.

Common A&E negligence claims

There is a wide variety of ways in which negligence can occur in accident and emergency departments. They include:

  • not examining patients or taking insufficient care when doing so
  • failing to conduct appropriate investigations, such as blood tests, x-rays and scans
  • misinterpreting test or scan results
  • overlooking symptoms or injuries
  • turning patients away in error
  • missing symptoms of high-risk conditions

However, A&E departments do not just diagnose injuries and health conditions. They also provide initial treatment in many cases. This allows for more situations where negligence can occur, such as:

  • providing incorrect treatment
  • failing to operate when necessary
  • providing sub-standard care following treatment
  • failing to treat patients or to look after their wellbeing

If you have experienced harm from sub-standard A&E care, perhaps in a way which has not been described above, please feel free to contact us to discuss your situation.
