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.
