Accident & Emergency Hospital Claims

Accident & Emergency departments in most hospitals are busy and under a lot of pressure to keep up with demand. If you have an accident or become ill suddenly it is likely you will visit the Accident & Emergency department of the nearest hospital for treatment. No matter how busy the A&E department is, they still owe you a duty of care.

It is vital that the Doctor you see carries out the right examination and tests you correctly determine your condition to ensure you receive the right treatment promptly. If they get it wrong your condition may be missed causing you to have to put up with unnecessary pain which could have been treated. This may well make your condition worse meaning you suffer for longer and may result in more serious treatment as a consequence.

In extreme cases you or a loved one may not survive. You may also receive inappropriate treatment which you do not need and which causes you harm/pain and unnecessary suffering.

Some common things that can go wrong in A&E are:

  • Failure to properly examine you
  • Failure to take an x-ray so a broken bone is not spotted
  • Failure to carry out appropriate tests
  • Failure to arrange follow-up or to refer you to a more specialised department
  • Misdiagnosing your illness or condition
  • Sending you home when you should be in hospital being monitored or having emergency treatment
  • Giving inappropriate medication or treatment which causes you harm.

If you feel you have been let down and suffered injury as a result of negligent treatment in the A&E department, you may have a claim for compensation and other losses.

There are inherent risks to undergoing all medical procedures, the risks should be fully explained to you by the A&E Doctor prior to any medical procedure going ahead. Equally if you have been discharged within being properly assessed or investigated and the Doctor failed to explain these risks they may be negligent.

If you consider that you have been let down, suffered injury and emotional distress as a result of negligent treatment in A&E, you may have a claim for compensation and other losses.
