Sepsis Negligence Claims

Diagnosing sepsis – or septicaemia as it is also known – within a matter of hours is essential, otherwise it could result in multi-organ failure or death. According to the NHS, there are 100,000 people admitted to hospital with sepsis in the UK each year – and around 37,000 will die from the condition.

Unfortunately, not all cases of sepsis are diagnosed properly, putting patients at great risk. As specialists who regularly deal with sepsis claims, we know how important a compensation settlement can be to help deal with the rehabilitation of those lucky enough to survive – and ease the financial worries of those who are left bereaved.

Making A Sepsis Claim

If a delay has been caused by a medical professional failing to spot the signs correctly, or they didn’t react with the required urgency, you may be able to make a sepsis compensation claim. Although many delays in diagnosis or treatment can prove fatal, if a person does survive they can be in a critical condition for a lengthy period of time.

Because of this they will require a protracted hospital stay, and it may be necessary to make a sepsis negligence claim for the pain and suffering caused, or any potential loss of earnings.

What Our Clients Say

I would recommend Hudgell Solicitors and their excellent service, my solicitor Sue Jackson was very professional but friendly and I felt at such ease with her.

“As patients, we all expect the most thorough of checks to be conducted whenever we walk through the door of a health provider.”

“It is our aim to get the appropriate offer of damages and ensure that mistakes like this don’t happen by healthcare providers in the future.”

Awareness Campaign


“Our specialist solicitors have represented families in holding health bodies to account when sepsis has either not been considered at all, or not identified early enough to ensure appropriate treatment.

Too often symptoms are dismissed as signs of other common illnesses, as it can be caused by any infection, even the most minor.

It is why we are campaigning through our ‘The Hour of Need’ campaign for Sepsis to be considered in any case where there has been rapidly worsening symptoms or illness.”
