Accident and Emergency Negligence

Although accident and emergency (A&E) departments are intended to help injury victims, things can sometimes go wrong that lead to patients suffering as a consequence. If this has happened to you, or if you are not happy with the treatment you received while in an A&E department, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Given that A&E departments can be very busy places, with medical professionals expected to see lots of patients in a relatively short space of time, there is always the possibility that mistakes may be made. If you have been dissatisfied with how you were treated in an A&E department, you should consider making a claim to recompense you for any suffering caused. You can do so by calling us on 0161 928 3848, or by completing the enquiry form on this page. 

Types of A&E negligence

There are various issues that can arise in an A&E department that can lead to additional patient suffering. The team at McHale & Co is highly experienced in dealing with all types of such negligence, with some of the most common types being:

  • Blood tests interpreted incorrectly, or not performed at all
  • Scans and X rays interpreted incorrectly, or not performed at all
  • Fractures not diagnosed or treated correctly
  • Incorrect diagnosis of a condition
  • Wounds cleaned and dressed inadequately
