Accident and Emergency Claims

While Accident and Emergency departments are undoubtedly busy, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t expect a high standard of care. Unfortunately negligence and errors made at A&E can be severe, often resulting in further trauma, the deterioration of medical conditions and even death.

If you or a family member have received inadequate treatment or care at an A&E department, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. with negligence at A&E often leading to dire repercussions for patients, Price Slater Gawne can help you obtain the maximum compensation possible.

We deal with all aspects of A&E negligence and accidents and have particular experience dealing with claims where:

  • Symptoms were diagnosed incorrectly, leading to the patient being discharged despite suffering from a serious medical condition
  • Delays in diagnosis, resulting in the unnecessary worsening of the patient’s condition
  • Examinations were incomplete or did not follow the correct procedures
  • The medical staff involved did not respond appropriately to the results of any investigations
  • The patient received below-standard care (for example being left with a serious injury for an extended period).

With a sympathetic, caring and above all human approach, we make sure that you and your family receive the compensation you deserve. Where appropriate, we also consider the potential long-term impact, taking into account psychological damage, chronic pain and any impact on future earnings.
