Accident and Emergency Claims

The vast majority of us will only go to Accident and Emergency if we absolutely have to, and it can be quite a difficult decision to make as we often don’t want to be a burden on the already-stretched NHS. 

However, if we do need to attend A&E, we rightly expect a particular standard of care to be given to us. Unfortunately, there are instances where that level of care in A&E can be reduced for a variety of reasons and as a result, does not meet our needs, and this may be due to medical negligence. 

It could be that the doctor or nurse in charge of your care is negligent in their diagnosis of your condition causing you to be misdiagnosed and perhaps treatment to be missed or delayed because of it. It could be that equipment that the medical staff need to offer you the most appropriate treatment is not available or faulty, which could lead to a deterioration in your condition. It could be that you were not referred on to another department quickly enough and so you have become more seriously ill as a result.  

It can be difficult to think of bringing a claim for compensation against the NHS, but it is worth thinking of the serious impact and consequences that the medical negligence has had on you and your family as time goes on. You could be in discomfort, pain; you may have life-changing injuries or disabilities as a result of the medical negligence you have suffered, and you may need to undergo further medical treatment or rehabilitation as a result.

The dedicated team at T G Baynes adopt a sensitive approach to ensure that all the facts about the medical negligence you have experienced are uncovered. We are experienced in helping victims of medical negligence to understand what went wrong during their A&E admission and what they may be entitled to claim as compensation as a result.
