A&E Medical Negligence

Almost 24 million people are seen in accident and emergency (A&E) departments in the UK each year, making it the busiest department in the hospital. Therefore, it will come as no surprise that, in some instances, avoidable mistakes are made by medical professionals.

How Can A&E Professionals Be Responsible for Medical Negligence?

  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose correctly
  • Poor treatment whilst at A&E
  • Wrong test results given
  • Not carrying out all the required checks (i.e. allergies, previous illness, etc.)
  • Not recognising the severity of a patient’s current state
  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Not providing the necessary tests/scans

If You Have Been a Victim of A&E Medical Negligence, You Could Claim For:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Cost of further medical treatment
  • Compensation of psychological damage
  • Pain and suffering related to your additional illness or injury

Case Study: A&E Medical Negligence for Hand Injury

G v Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust

This claim related to a failure to diagnose tendon damage during a visit to A&E following a knife laceration. The claimants hand was negligently stitched together, without the tendons being repaired; this resulted in limited movement to the tips of two fingers.

Compensation was pleaded in the region of £35,000.00.
