Accident & Emergency Claims

Compensation when things go wrong

What is involved?

In the majority of cases, Accident & Emergency Departments provide an excellent service. Unfortunately there are times when things go wrong – you could suffer a mistake or injury. If the worst does happen, you may be entitled to claim financial compensation for any injuries or losses which would otherwise have been avoided. Our Clinical Negligence team has a wide range of experts, ready to answer your specific questions.

We understand the disappointment and distress that a negligent error in A&E can cause. For example, failing to recognise or treat cardiac problems (resulting in a heart attack) or failing to diagnose a stroke could have devastating consequences for you and your family.

Accident & Emergency negligence claims can include failures to: diagnose fractures/dislocations, properly investigate head injury, diagnose cauda equina syndrome, diagnose infections such as osteomyelitis, necrotizing fasciitis and meningitis, diagnose nerve tendon and ligament injuries, or diagnose and treat DVT.
