If adequate treatment for Sepsis has not been given, or Sepsis was misdiagnosed or went undiagnosed, you could suffer physical or mental damage. When this happens, you could claim compensation from the GP, NHS Trust or private clinic responsible for your care.
As already outlined, even if you recover from Sepsis, you might be left with long-term complications that leave you with physical and mental symptoms, including:
- Memory loss
- Cognitive dysfunction
- Muscle and joint pain
- Multiple organ failures
- Amputation of limbs
- In severe cases, death
For a sepsis medical negligence claim to succeed, your condition must have been made worse due to the medical professional’s negligence. It is not enough to prove the medics were negligent if that negligence hadn’t caused more pain, suffering and loss of amenity than you would have suffered if there had not been any negligence on the part of the clinicians.
The first step towards claiming compensation for Sepsis is to contact an experienced medical negligence solicitor who can both advise and represent you.
