Receiving negligent treatment in Accident and Emergency departments is unfortunately quite common.
The department is the first point of contact for all kinds of emergencies and is often working with overstretched resources. This can lead to specific illnesses and injuries being missed, resulting in serious, and in some cases, fatal consequences for the patient.
Some of the most common instances of medical negligence that occur in the A&E departments are misdiagnosis, patients being discharged too early, being given the wrong medication and not being referred to the most suitable consultant, based on the injury or illness.
If you believe that you or a family member did not receive the standard of care that you should have, and as a result, have suffered an injury or illness, or a deterioration of an existing illness or injury, you may be able to claim compensation.
