A & E Medical Negligence Claims
Most people will find being taken to Accident & Emergency extremely stressful, regardless of whether you are rushed in an ambulance after a car accident, or if you injure yourself whilst playing football.
A&E Departments are often very busy and staff are stretched to capacity and it is under these circumstances that standards of care drop below acceptable standards and that mistakes are made.
When you put your trust in medical professionals, you expect them to diagnose you properly and give you the correct treatment to make sure you can recover.
What can go wrong?
A&E departments are places that seriously ill and injured people are diagnosed and given treatment. Many A&E department are overstretched, short staffed and the staff who are there are overworked and under huge pressures. This means that vital signs that would help to give the correct diagnosis are often missed and can result in negligent care being given.
These can include:
- Failure to diagnose
- Failure to properly treat
- Spinal problems made worse by wrong or lack of treatment
The consequences of wrong diagnoses can range from missed diagnosis of a fracture right up to paralysis due to mistreatment of spinal issues. Whatever has happened to you, we can help you to deal with what has happened to you and decide if you would like to make an a&e claim.
