Meningitis is known as one of the fastest developing types of infection, so it is crucial that the symptoms are identified as quickly as possible so that the patient can be treated as a matter of urgency. Misdiagnosis or failure to spot the symptoms of meningitis quickly can increase the patient's chances of suffering further medical complications due to the infection, including:

  • Memory loss
  • Co-ordination issues
  • Severe headaches
  • Hearing problems
  • Epilepsy
  • Vision problems
  • Septicaemia (which can lead to loss of limbs)
  • Brain Damage

If there has been a significant delay in recognising the meningitis infection and getting treatment started, or if the infection has been correctly identified by medical professionals but the wrong treatment was you may be entitled to claim compensation.
