Accident and Emergency Claims

When an injury or sudden illness occurs, Accident & Emergency (A&E) is usually the first port of call when seeking treatment for yourself or a loved one.

However, the nature of A&E treatment means that any errors and delays can have serious consequences on your health – often lifelong consequences – whilst also impacting on your family.

If you feel your treatment fell below what’s expected, causing you further harm or extending your illness, you could be eligible for compensation, and our team of specialists at Hudgell Solicitors can help.

“Unfortunately, we see far too many cases where errors are clearly made in A&E departments, but hospital Trusts are reluctant to accept blame and admit to errors.

It is in this area that our expertise and experience helps clients through a difficult complaints process to find the answers, and secure admissions of how things went wrong.”
