If you have experienced medical negligence while in A&E, you could be entitled to compensation.
SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
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.
