Accident and Emergency Negligence

Given the often hectic nature of A&E wards, the potential for error can be high, especially with medical professionals attempting to see as many patients as possible. Common issues relating to A&E negligence include:

  • Failure to diagnose and treat a fracture
  • Inappropriate or substandard treatment of fractures
  • Failure to perform and/or correctly interpret diagnostic blood tests
  • Failure to order X-rays or scans and/or interpreting them wrongly
  • Failure to recognise when someone is likely to harm themselves
  • Failure to identify the seriousness of a condition and make the wrong diagnosis
  • Inadequate cleaning, suturing and dressing of wounds
