Establishing whether you have a case for making an encephalitis claim requires exactly the same effort and evidence as any other claim for medical negligence. Access Legal’s expert lawyers need to show that it was the breach of the duty of care owed to you which directly caused the injury you suffered.
Claims in these cases are potentially very high value and are defended very aggressively. An overwhelming case has been built and presented to ensure a successful conclusion. Thorough investigation of all your circumstances is essential in order to decide whether to bring a claim.
Expert opinion may be needed to confirm the circumstances if the condition arose from an infection acquired while in hospital or after an operation for example and If not already performed, detailed magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans may have to be arranged to confirm the precise location and nature of the brain injury.
If you have suffered any of the possible complications of encephalitis it will affect how you manage your day-to-day life and your ability to work and very likely means that you will require some support for the rest of your life. If our expert encephalitis solicitors are able to prove that 'on the balance of probability' (i.e. a greater than 50% likelihood) it was a failure to diagnose or treat or sub- standard care which caused or aggravated the injuries you or a loved one suffered, an encephalitis compensation claim is likely to succeed.
