A&E Departments provide a vital service to the public, but when things go wrong and patients are harmed errors can be catastrophic.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury or harm caused by A&E treatment, call 0800 633 5730 for legal advice.

Visiting an Accident and Emergency Department is usually because we need urgent medical treatment. While most staff offer an excellent service, sometimes things go wrong.

Accident and Emergency Departments are high pressure environments, however as a patient you are due a duty of care and a standard of treatment.

Medical staff can make mistakes and the consequences of making an error can prove very serious for the patient.

If your treatment fell short of the accepted standard and you suffered an injury, you should seek legal advice to find out if you are entitled to claim compensation for your pain and suffering.

You can call a medical negligence specialist at Imperium Law on 0800 633 5730 to find out how to claim.

Claim case example:

£200,000 compensation payout for the family of a patient who died after visiting A&E.

The family of a 31 year old man who died after visiting a London A&E Department won their case for compensation.

The young man visited A&E suffering flu like symptoms and confusion. He was assessed in the minor injuries unit by a GP, who reassured him that he was fine. He was then discharged and sent home.

Sadly the next day he collapsed and died. After a full investigation of the facts surrounding his death, two independent medical experts concluded that had he been treated with broad spectrum antibiotics when he visited A&E he would have survived.

A claim was made against the NHS by his family. Liability was initially denied, however after negotiation the family’s claim was accepted and a £200,000 settlement was paid out.

Making a claim against the NHS.

With NHS resources under increasing pressure mistakes in hospitals are increasing in frequency. Patients who have suffered harm at the hands of a health carer are entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering.

We can help you claim if you were harmed by:

  • the failure to correctly record your patient history.
  • the failure to properly note your symptoms.
  • the failure to carry out correct investigations such as X-rays, scans and blood tests.
  • the failure to correctly interpret test results.
  • the failure to correctly read X-rays.
  • the failure to admit you for treatment or observation.
In cases where hospital errors have led to a fatality, the family of the deceased is entitled to make a claim.

If you or a loved one have been:

  • harmed during medical treatment.

  • misdiagnosed by a health care professional.

  • received substandard care while visiting A&E.
