Their client-friendly approach ensures individuals feel safe and confident with them
At Penningtons Manches Cooper we pursue many medical negligence claims each year on behalf of patients who are not properly investigated, diagnosed, treated or advised by accident and emergency teams across the country.
Given the very diverse range of injuries that present in these departments, there is a wide variety of circumstances giving rise to accident and emergency claims. Just as the injuries vary, so too do the effects of sub-standard care which can range from catastrophic consequences, as a result of patients not being properly diagnosed or treated, to more minor injuries. Claims may include the following:
Our experienced team can advise in relation to a wide range of claims.
Settling a claim against East Surrey Hospital for the death of a young wife and mother of two due to a failure to identify a sub arachnoid haemorrhage in time to prevent further fatal bleeding.
Investigating a claim arising from a fracture to the upper arm (humerus) which was displaced following manipulation and being put in plaster. After suffering considerable pain, our client eventually underwent corrective surgery.
Acting in several cases involving the failure to investigate and diagnose testicular torsion. This is a relatively rare condition which, if not properly investigated, can result in the loss of a testicle for boys and men.
