Accident and Emergency

Accident and Emergency

Accident and Emergency Departments generally provide a good service, but they can be particularly busy with doctors, nurses and medical staff under pressure to see and treat patients as quickly as possible and, unfortunately, sometimes problems are missed or mistakes made, for example:

  • By failing to examine patients properly
  • Misinterpreting X-rays or other scans
  • Missing symptoms
  • Not spotting broken bones
  • Not recognising heart attacks or strokes
  • Inadequate cleaning, stitching and dressing of wounds
  • Failing to recognise the seriousness of a condition and making a wrong diagnosis

If you have suffered because the Accident and Emergency Department has not  treated you properly you may be able to take  legal action for  compensation. Such claims are difficult and  expert advice and expert evidence are needed to work out whether you have a claim. Our specialist medical negligence solicitors will be able to advise you and we will act for you on a NO  WIN NO  FEE basis meaning that you will not have to pay any legal fees should your case be unsuccessful.
