Accident and Emergency Claims

In medical emergencies, the Accident and Emergency department is usually contacted for as a first port of call if you have sustained an injury or fallen ill. The staff at the Accident and Emergemcy Department are usually well trained to provide the best possible service to you and ensure that you receive the best possible care before you reach the hospital. Ambulances usually also consist of many medical equipment which can be used for the patient so that they can recieve the temporary care they need.

However, sometimes there can be mistakes with the procedure that is carried out or the temporary treatment that is given before you reach the hospital for a more permanent treatment. Althought the paramedics are well trained in the job they do, even they can make mistakes in either handling the patient or providing them with the care they need. Amongst all the mistakes and errors in the procedure, the ones which you can be made eligible to claim compensation are as follows:

  • Patient being sent home without an underlying problem being properly treated
  • Signs or symptoms of serious conditions being missed
  • Failure to offer necessary measures such as x-rays or medical scans
  • Not arranging for tests to determine the severity of the condition

Why should I Make An Accident and Emergency Claim?

Your A&E claim can earn you the much-needed compensation that can help you to pay your medical expenses for any current or future care and treatment as well as the compensation can recover any lost earnings after time away from work. Your claim for compensation will also highlight the neglectful treatment often being carried out by NHS doctors and medical staff or any other private hospital. Also, carrying out a claim will also prevent other people to suffer the same medical damage as it may cause realisation in the NHS department about the number of claims being made against them for medical negligence. Moreover, claiming A&E negligence claim will also help you recover the cost of adaptations to your home and life.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim?

The amount of A&E compensation awarded in this case depends on a number of different aspects. These aspects can include the severity of the injury caused, combined with any financial losses., the effect the damage has had on your life outside work, and whether your medical injury was caused due to negligence will require further treatment and care.

What Evidence Do I Need to Make a Clinical Negligence Claim?

For clinical negligence cases, it is important to gather as much evidence and information as possible to ensure you successfully claim compensation. This is because clinical negligence cases are generally harder to fight than other types of cases, due to a lot of complications arising when diagnosing and treating illnesses and rights. You should ensure you have enough evidence to make your case strong. You should take a note of the following at the earliest possible date:

  • The date and time of your visit
  • The condition you went with
  • The names of the staff who treated you (if possible)
  • The nature of the treatment offered i.e. diagnosis, type of treatment etc.
  • The reasons why you feel this treatment was in some way negligent
  • Evidence which can be easy to obtain and does not require much time

How Long Do I Have To Make A Claim?

There is often a time limit in which you can make a clinical negligence claim. In most medical negligence cases, you have 3 years to make a compensation claim, starting from the date the negligence happened or the date you first became aware that you have suffered from negligence, which is also known as the 'date of knowledge'

However, it is important to contact us as soon as possible so that we can begin to gather evidences for your claim. Moreover, as the incident remains fresh in your mind, evidences become easier to collect and this causes your case to become stronger
