Sepsis Claims

Sepsis is a potentially life threatening condition caused by the human body’s response to infection.

We can offer advice if you have suffered as a result of improper treatment and negligence

Sepsis causes the body to injure its own tissues and organs and can lead to multiple organ failure. This means it is imperative that the signs and symptoms of sepsis are recognised early and treated promptly.

Some symptoms of sepsis include high body temperature, high heart rate, high respiratory rate, difficulty breathing and abdominal pain. Sometimes patients can experience low urine output and even a change in their mental state. Any type of infection can lead to sepsis, common examples being pneumonia and kidney infections. Sepsis is fast acting, so if you are concerned that you may have these symptoms it is important to contact a healthcare professional immediately (http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Blood-poisoning/Pages/Introduction.aspx).

Every year in the UK there are more than 150,000 cases of sepsis resulting in 44,000 deaths. Sadly, for some patients, seeking medical attention is not enough. Delay in diagnosis and misdiagnosis can lead to long-term health issues and tragically, even death. If you or one of your loved ones has been misdiagnosed or suffered a delay in diagnosis by a healthcare professional then we can help you to secure the compensation you deserve for your ongoing and future needs.

Our highly qualified Clinical Negligence solicitors will be with you every step of the way, offering personal support and advice to help you in this difficult time. We offer a no win, no fee service to support the victims of negligent medical care; we can help you on the road to rehabilitation.

How can I find out if medical treatment was negligent?
During the investigations of your clinical negligence claim we will be required to obtain disclosure of all relevant medical records - both hospital and GP - in the manner set out in the pre-action protocols. Once all of the relevant medical records have been received they will be considered on a preliminary basis. They will then be sent to an independent expert nurse who will index and paginate the records to ensure that they are in some semblance of order.
