Have you been the victim of Accident & Emergency negligence?
Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments offer a vital service when we need it most, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. However, A&E departments can be extremely busy and doctors and nurses are forced to work under a lot of pressure.
With a limited amount of time to assess patients, things can go wrong and errors can be made, sometimes with catastrophic results. Despite this, you are still entitled to receive a highest possible level of care.
If you think have suffered as a direct result of NHS negligence you may be entitled to make a claim. Here at What’s My Claim Worth our specialist medical negligence team are happy to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Accident & Emergency claim case study
Our client won £35,000 in compensation – click the Claimometer button to start your claim today…
One recent case that we have dealt with involved a client who was x-rayed and told that he had only suffered a sprain. However, he was called back to the Accident & Emergency Department of the hospital two weeks later and was informed that his original diagnosis was wrong. After reviewing the x-ray it showed that our client had in fact broken his wrist.
Unfortunately, his ligaments had also been damaged and this had caused the bones to be displaced, meaning that he needed surgery. Something that may have been avoided had the initial diagnosis been correct. Despite the hospital initially maintaining a denial of liability, we were able to help our client recover the sum of £35,000 by way of compensation.
