Sepsis, also described as septicaemia, is one the most dangerous and fast-acting conditions for which we can represent people to pursue compensation claims for. Many patients may not be fully aware of its risks, so it is the duty of doctors to recognise the symptoms soon after they present themselves and to treat them immediately. If not, the patient may be left with significant organ failure, or the condition can even be fatal. Sepsis compensation claims can help to achieve justice for the consequences of this life-threatening condition, especially when people are left permanently disabled.
We believe that is vital to hold medical practitioners to account for the mistakes they have made, which is why we support victims of sepsis or their loved ones to seek compensation for the damage caused. There is no room for error when lives are at stake, and medical practitioners have a duty to be sensitive to all the possible risks of a patient’s condition.
If you think you have been the victim of medical negligence, do not hesitate to contact us for advice regarding your potential compensation claim.
Hospital wards can be one of the most fast-paced healthcare environments, with nurses and doctors forced to keep on top of many responsibilities at once. We know that the NHS has been under strain for many years, and the coronavirus pandemic has put even more pressure on our hospitals, but these difficulties are no excuse for a lower quality of care. If you have experienced medical negligence on a ward, or if your loved one has, you may be able to claim compensation for any harm that has been caused.
Whether a nurse has failed to check up on a patient, or a doctor has failed to notice a change in symptoms, there are several kinds of medical negligence that can arise on a ward, many of which are provoked by the inattention of medical professionals. If you think you may have a compensation claim to make, please do not hesitate to contact us for advice.
