Visiting an Accident & Emergency department is invariably a stressful time for all concerned. Medical staff do their best to ensure that we get the best treatment possible in difficult circumstances but regrettably, avoidable mistakes still happen and sometimes the consequences of those mistakes can be permanent.

We all have the right to a high standard of care when visiting hospital. However injuries can often be diagnosed incorrectly, for example when x-rays or scans are not performed when they should be.

Medical accidents can occur, for example when injuries are caused by surgical equipment during the course of an operation (see surgery claims). Or the care received can simply be managed poorly, for example when bed sores occur through lack of regular monitoring.
