Accident & Emergency medical negligence claims involve cases arising against a treating hospital where patients presenting at the A&E department are not properly examined, investigated, diagnosed, treated or advised.
The consequences of negligent care in A&E give rise to a wide variety of injury types and the consequences of sub-standard care can range from catastrophic to minor injuries.
Claims may include the following:
- Failure to properly examine a patient;
- Failure to correctly investigate and diagnose, for example, meningitis;
- Failure to refer appropriately on to other hospital specialists as a result of investigations;
- Failure to treat properly;
- Delays in providing treatment; and
- Wrongful discharge.
We have a particular specialism in claims arising from the misdiagnosis or late diagnosis of subarachnoid haemorrhage and other brain bleeds.
