Sepsis 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.
