More about A&E treatment claims

In certain circumstances, the decisions made; and the treatment given in A&E departments, can literally mean the difference between life and death.

Unexpected major incidents (e.g. multiple vehicle accidents on the motorway) can suddenly increase the volume of patients going to A&E and present very complex and urgent medical challenges to A&E doctors and staff. A&E departments can also experience an increase in admissions at certain times of year, such as in winter, for example, when people injure themselves by slipping on snow or ice.

The NHS in England has a target of treating 95% of patients in A&E within four hours of admission. However, no matter how busy A&E staff may be, patients are still entitled to receive the same reasonable standards of care as are expected to be provided by any medical professional practising in this area.

If you have received negligent medical care in an A&E department then you may be able to claim for any loss or injury that has directly resulted from that substandard treatment.
