Accident & Emergency /
It is well documented in the media that the nature of the work of paramedics and medical practitioners in Accident & Emergency Departments is extremely stressful and is often delivered in a high pressure environment, with a significant number of patients requiring treatment for various types of injuries and illnesses on any one day.
That said, a patient is still owed a duty of care by the medical professional treating them and mistakes do happen.
When you are a victim of an Accident and Emergency practitioner’s mistake, whether through a missed, or misdiagnosis, among other things, this can have a massive impact on your health and wellbeing and on your life in general.
We understand that it is often the case that it is essential for a condition or injury to be diagnosed within a certain timeframe and that a failure to do this can result in a patient being denied the opportunity for the best possible outcome for their treatment.
Not only can this cause unnecessary pain and suffering, but can also have a knock-on effect on your and your family’s emotional and financial well-being.
We will ensure that comprehensive investigations are undertaken into every aspect of your claim and will strive to ensure that your recover the best possible settlement.

No Win, No Fee
With no win no fee, there aren’t any upfront charges or hidden costs. If you do win your case, we will charge you a ‘success fee’ as a percentage of the compensation you receive, this will then be capped at a maximum of 25% – and in many cases this is significantly less than this so you will receive the majority yourself. This fee will be agreed between you and your solicitor before we take on your case.
