Accident and Emergency Compensation Claims

Sometimes in life we never know when we are going to end up in hospital. In fact most of the time we seem to be there when we least expect it. If you are rushed to A+E, chances are that you are not in the best physical or mental condition and what you need and expect is to receive the highest level of medical attention available.

lthough the majority of our doctors do amazing work to save people’s lives every day you should not suffer if you are neglected or if the treatment that you receive while in this situation is incorrect.

Suffering negligence while in the A+E can have serious consequences and could alter the rest of your life. If you are given the incorrect treatment or are mis-diagnosed then your situation could become a lot more severe very quickly. If you have suffered as a result of a mistake in the A+E room then you may be able to sue for medical negligence to cover the cost of your medical fees.

What types of medical negligence can occur?

When it comes to the A+E there are many types of negligence that can occur and these include:

  • Incorrect diagnosis – if the examining doctor diagnoses you incorrectly you may not be given the right treatment and bigger issues may be ignored
  • Incorrect treatment – receiving the wrong medications or treatment could prolong your injury or make the situation more severe
  • Medical accident – an accident in the surgery room or A+E which could involve an incorrect surgery procedure
  • Poor facility structure – long waiting periods to be admitted for emergency surgery and a lack of available beds.

When can I claim?

In order to be able to claim for A+E compensation you need to be able to prove that you have been directly affected as the result of someone else’s negligence. This could include the negligence of a specific doctor or of the establishment as a whole. Supporting documents can include a record of the medicines you did or did not receive and an accurate example of waiting times for surgery or treatment.

How do I claim?

If you feel that you have been a victim of poor A+E care then you may be eligible to claim for compensation. If you can prove medical negligence then you may be able to sue the responsible party for the entire sum of your medical expenses in addition any loss of income that you may have suffered as a result.
