Meningitis Claims

If I have a meningitis case


If I have a meningitis case

Establishing whether you have a case for making a meningitis claim depends on whether Access Legal’s expert lawyers can show that there was a breach of the duty owed to you by the responsible healthcare staff.

We need to prove that doctors failed to appropriately test for meningitis or that their failure to diagnose, misinterpret or delay that diagnosis lead to you not receiving the appropriate treatment. The standard of that proof need only be that 'on the balance of probability' (i.e. greater than 50% likelihood) it was those failures that were directly responsible for the injuries and actual physical harm you or your child suffered.

There are time limits within which you can claim so whatever your circumstances you should contact Access Legal as soon as is practicable. We can then give you free initial advice about whether a claim is possible and establish what additional treatments you may require to help you deal with the future, whatever your prognosis.

The value of your claim will depend on the nature and severity of the injury you or your child suffered, whether you or your child recover fully or if there is long term effect on your health and well-being or that of your child. These can be complex, lengthy and demanding cases. The first thing to do is to contact an expert law firm like Access Legal which specialises in this sort of work and can advise you if you have a case that is likely to succeed.
