ACCIDENT & EMERGENCY TREATMENT OR FAILURE TO PROVIDE TREATMENT CLAIMS

Accident and Emergency Negligence

An Accident & Emergency medical negligence action can arise when doctors or other Accident and Emergency staff fail to treat a person for what they are suffering from, or where they fail to make a correct diagnosis or referral.

Examples of Accident and Emergency Negligence can arise in situations where an Accident and Emergency patient is admitted to A&E, and there is:

  • failure to treat a patient properly, and failure to diagnose the problem;
  • failure to recognize the patient’s illness or injury, and failure to refer to a senior or specialist doctor;
  • failure to check a patient’s medical history properly;
  • failure to carry out basic investigations and X-Ray/MRI scans.

The time limits in medical negligence claims can be extremely prohibitive, and your legal claim must be commenced within two years from when the incident occurred or when you first became aware or had knowledge, that you have suffered an injury. It is very advisable to get the advice that you need as soon as you become aware of a medical difficulty or injury as a result of medical or surgical treatment or a medical or surgical procedure.
