If you are in an accident & emergency department, you put your trust in medical practitioners to give you the urgent medical help you need. Fortunately in most cases staff in A&E departments offer excellent services that help save lives, get people back on their feet as quick as possible or help them to receive further medical treatment.

But, as A&E departments can be particularly busy areas, doctors, nurses and medical staff are under pressure to see to as many patients as possible to reduce waiting times and move people on quickly. Due to this high pressure, medical professionals can make mistakes and if they do, the results can be devastating.

Patients should always expect a high standard of medical care, regardless of where they are in the queue. If you have approached an A&E department with a medical issue and staff have failed to provide you with a high standard of care and you are injured or suffer illness as a result, you are entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.

Types of A&E Compensation Claims

Some of the most common A&E compensation claims the expert team at Forbes deal with involve the following key issues:

  • Failing to examine patients properly if at all
  • Misreading x rays or failing to refer to them
  • Missing obvious symptoms
  • Late diagnosis
  • Not diagnosing obvious broken bones or fractures
  • Failure to spot strokes or heart attacks properly

These are just a few examples of the types of issues Forbes help clients seek compensation for. If you feel you have suffered due to clinical negligence or have been injured due to an A&E department failing to treat or diagnose you correctly, it’s vital you seek legal help from the expert team at Forbes Solicitors.
