Hospital Negligence Claims - Accident & Emergency

The Accident and Emergency department is usually the first place people will visit when they have suffered an injury. The treatment provided in A&E is often life saving, and on the whole very good. Unfortunately however, when resources are stretched and the number of patients continues to increase mistakes occur. These include:

  • Failure to examine the patient properly on admission
  • Failure to do the correct investigations such as x-rays, scans and blood tests
  • Failure to seek advice from the most appropriate specialist
  • Discharging the patient too early
  • Failure to refer for further investigation and treatment
  • Misdiagnosis

Due to the wide variety of injuries A&E departments deal with, mistakes like these can lead to something more serious or even fatal.

Compensation For Accident and Emergency injuries

Whilst we sympathise with how busy nurses and doctors are when working in A&E, it doesn’t mean that you should expect a lesser standard of care. If mistakes are made in the care you receive and you suffer an illness or injury as a result you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

Mayiclaim try to make the hospital negligence claims process as stress free as possible. Our experienced team, along with highly experienced medical negligence solicitors will ensure your claim is dealt with in a speedy and professional manner.

The compensation you could receive will cover many things including loss of earnings, travel expenses, medical bills, rehabilitation and any other related costs.

Our nationwide solicitors also work on a no-win-no-fee basis. Therefore, if for any reason we are unsuccessful, you will not be burdened with expensive legal fees.

Mr Wheeler of Tyneside

"After completing one of their forms online I was quickly called back by their own solicitor. He was very helpful and knowledgeable and gave me instant advice about what I should do next. I am very pleased with the service from Mayiclaim so far. I would certainly recommend them."
