Accident and Emergency Claims
Accident and Emergency departments are most frequently your first point of call when a medical issue is too urgent or too severe to wait for a GP appointment. They are a frontline health service frequently delivering a high standard of care. However, we all know from the media how they are immensely busy and under extreme pressure to keep waiting times down. This, combined with the sheer numbers of patients they are sometimes required to treat, can unfortunately lead to errors. Despite the constraints and pressures on A and E departments you should still receive a high standard of care, and if you haven’t and have suffered as a result, you may be able to claim for Medical Negligence.
Some examples of Medical Negligence arising from poor treatment include:
- Patient neglect including a failure to notice deterioration in your condition
- Failure to admit you to hospital due to poor judgement or bed shortages
- Being sent home without the underlying problem being properly treated
- Signs or symptoms of a serious condition being missed
- Failure to offer necessary diagnostics, for example, x-rays, scans, and blood tests
- Misinterpreting results of diagnostic tests

I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
I contacted Attwood Solicitors requesting that they represent me. Their response to date has been way beyond my expectations . They have provided a comprehensive and professional service at every stage, with a dedicated member of staff as my contact.
All my queries and issues have been resolved very efficiently and you have always contacted me back when promised. I have certainty felt you have been acting on my behalf and would like to thank you for that. Once again we would like to convey our sincere thanks to you and would have no reservations recommending you to anyone else – you have been a star
