Accident and Emergency Negligence

A&E departments are the frontline of medical care during emergencies, and the expectation is that they deliver timely and accurate treatments. When standards fall and negligence occurs, the impact on your life can be profound. At Anthony Joyce & Co Solicitors, we understand the gravity of these situations and are here to help.

Claims commonly stem from a range of negligent acts, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis that leads to worsening conditions
  • Incomplete or incorrect medical examinations that overlook crucial symptoms
  • Surgical errors or procedural mistakes with lasting consequences
  • Failure to perform necessary tests or follow-up surgeries
  • Post-operative care that falls short of the required standard
  • Administering medication without considering known allergies
  • Prescribing and dispensing the wrong medication or dosages
  • Discharging patients prematurely, leading to further health complications
