Sepsis Awareness Month 2019
We have extensive experience of acting for clients in clinical negligence claims relating to infectious diseases and conditions, including:
We have worked in this area for over twenty five years and have established links with the best experts in their fields. We work with our clients to advise them about the treatment they have received and to guide them through the litigation process. We are contacted by patients themselves but also family members, where the patient receiving treatment may have died as a result of the delay in diagnosing, misdiagnosis and treating their condition.
Where patients are concerned there was a delay in diagnosis or treatment of a serious condition, the hospital will often say that the outcome would have been the same in any event. This is not always the case. In particular, with viral illnesses such as meningitis and tuberculosis, the earlier the treatment, the better chance you have of fighting the illness.
We work with our clients to establish the facts and to obtain the medical background history, which enables us and the experts to assess whether there were any failures in the care provided to you. If we can establish that there were delays in diagnosing and treating your illness and that this caused you loss, we can then claim compensation for you.
We look at the ways in which our clients have been affected and are with them every step of the way, whilst we seek to maximise their claim for compensation. We appreciate that this is a difficult time for our clients and their loved ones and our aim is to support you through each stage of the claim until the conclusion.
We have acted for a broad range of client, covering a wide range of medical disciplines. Our success in winning cases relating to infectious diseases is significant.
