More about meningitis claims

Bacterial meningitis is very serious and should be considered a medical emergency. If left untreated, it can infect the blood, causing septicaemia, which can cause widespread injury. It usually affects children under five years of age, particularly babies under the age of one. It can also affect teenagers aged 15 to 19, although any adult of any age may be susceptible.

Viral meningitis can be mistaken for flu. It is also more common in children and more widespread during the summer.

Meningococcal septicaemia also requires urgent diagnosis and treatment. Failure by a medical team to recognise the symptoms may lead to long term complications such as deafness, blindness and limb loss. In some rare cases the infection can also sadly lead to death.

If this disease is recognised and treated promptly life-threatening complications or any serious long-term harm can be completely avoided.

If you or a loved one have been adversely affected because medical professionals did not appropriately diagnose or manage meningitis infection, you may wish to consider making a claim.
