How do I make a claim about septicemia
This is specialist work. It is important that your chosen law firm has the legal expertise and the medical knowledge to understand and appreciate what evidence is required and to interpret that evidence when it is obtained.
Your lawyers must also have relationships with the appropriate medical and other experts who can assess your immediate health needs and the support you may urgently require. Their input will be absolutely crucial to your recovery and the success of your compensation claim.
You must be able to prove with the support of our expert lawyers at Access Legal that you received sub-standard treatment and we must be able to prove, on the balance of probabilities, that you suffered harm as a direct consequence of that sub-standard treatment.
Where a diagnosis of sepsis was delayed, either by your GP or hospital staff especially if you were known to be ‘at risk’, that delay could constitute negligence. In cases concerning a negligent failure to take the correct preventative measures or to follow the therapeutic treatments outlined in the ‘Sepsis Six’ guidelines in a timely manner (or not at all), we also have to prove that this lead to the condition which caused the harm you suffered.
If you feel you may have a case, call us as soon as possible for a free initial consultation. There are time limits to making a claim (three years usually). We can give you the benefit of our experience in such claims and an objective assessment of the likely success of your claim.
