A&E services are often under a lot of pressure, and things can go wrong. Ambulances might not arrive on time or A&E doctors may fail to diagnose what is wrong or misdiagnose. This can cause further injury, and, in more serious cases this can cause life changing injuries or in some cases even a fatality.
Patients who have been wrongly diagnosed or misdiagnosed by A&E services and suffered as a result can claim compensation by making a claim for Accident and Emergency Failures or negligent treatment at A&E.
A&E compensation claims for medical negligence include claims against an ambulance trust, or a hospital trust for A&E failings.
Duncan Lewis clinical negligence solicitors have a successful track record in winning compensation for patients who have suffered injury as a result of failures in NHS accident and emergency services.
