A&E departments provide a vital service in the most difficult of circumstances. However, you are still entitled to a high standard of care. Due to the serious and urgent nature of injuries then require A&E treatment, when things go wrong the errors can be catastrophic with serious consequences. If you’ve experienced negligence when undergoing emergency treatment, you may be entitled to make an A&E compensation claim.
Unprofessional conduct or negligent treatment by staff in accident and emergency departments is a rare occurrence, but when it does happen it can have a serious effect on your health and wellbeing. Our solicitors have a great deal of experience in supporting clients who have been affected in this way to make successful A&E claims for compensation, helping them to get their lives back on track and afford the additional treatment they may need.
Specialist Accident & Emergency Negligence Claims Solicitors
Some A&E mistakes are caused by errors or delays in making a prognosis. Other mistakes occur when a condition is not treated correctly. Even in a busy accident and emergency department, you should expect to receive treatment of the highest standard. When this care falls short and you suffer an additional injury or illness, or take longer to recover, you may be entitled to claim compensation against the department. Our team of A&E negligence solicitors are here to help you should the worst happen.
We understand that suffering illness or injury due to A&E negligence can cause great distress for you and your entire family. Many people affected are unable to work, causing financial worries, as well as the emotional harm that can accompany injury of this nature. All this on top of the physical pain and trauma of the original medical issue. Carter Law’s A&E solicitors understand the problems you may be facing and have the expertise to handle your claim and get the best result possible for you.
The financial A&E compensation is often secondary to finding out what happened and ensuring the people responsible are held to account. This will prevent other patients from experiencing similar problems. However, compensation can help you access specialist treatment, make up for loss of earnings and compensate you for your pain and suffering.
