A&E Negligence Claims
A&E Compensation Claims
Hospital A&E departments are often critical for identifying serious health issues and ensuring patients receive the right treatment swiftly. If A&E staff have made mistakes with the way you or a loved one were treated, this may have caused serious long-term health consequences. Claiming compensation is often the only way to get the help and support needed to deal with those consequences. Compensation for A&E errors can often be substantial, allowing you to fund private medical treatment, buy specialist equipment, pay for care workers and cover the cost of various other types of practical support, as well as replacing lost income and any other costs you have incurred as a direct result of your substandard treatment.
How to start an Accident & Emergency compensation claim
It is likely you will have never needed to claim compensation before, so will have little or no idea how the process works. We understand this, so our friendly, approachable team will guide you through every stage of the claims process, making sure you understand what is involved and the likely outcomes of each stage.
We offer a free initial consultation, which allows you to explain your situation so we can give a clear assessment of whether we believe your claim merits further investigation. Our panel of solicitors will always be honest with you and will only advise you to take your claim forward if they believe there is a realistic chance of securing compensation.
We also offer no win, no fee agreements for A&E claims, meaning there is normally no upfront cost and no financial risk to you when you start a claim with Pursuit Claims .
