Bringing an Accident and Emergency Compensation Claim
Mistakes made by Accident & Emergency staff usually occur during diagnosis or treatment. If you have suffered due to one of the following issues, our team might be able to take on your case and help you to bring your compensation claim.
- The hospital failed to admit you for treatment – you were sent home then became gravely ill later that day.
- A mistake was made in taking your medical history – important information was overlooked causing you to suffer more in the treatment process.
- Medical staff failed to examine you properly – and did not take any notes detailing your symptoms.
- Medical staff failed to carry out the correct investigations – such as taking blood tests, scans, and X-rays.
- Receiving incorrect medical treatment – which worsened your condition.
- Failing to operate on you when required – causing on-going issues with your health.
- Making an error during surgery – causing a significant injury to you.
- Failing to document a deterioration in your condition – causing continued health issues further down the line.
- Providing an inadequate level of care – neglecting you on your visit or not providing the necessary standard of care following surgery.
