With around 6,000 cases of encephalitis diagnosed each year across the UK, the illness affects both adults and children of all ages and can have devastating effects on both the victim and their family.

Encephalitis, which is an inflammation of the brain usually caused by an infection or an inappropriate response from the sufferers own immune system, can be very difficult to diagnose. In some case, the early symptoms of Encephalitis can be mistaken for the common cold or meningitis. Because of this, recognising the symptoms early on, carrying out blood tests and brain scans and ensuring that the patient is given the appropriate antiviral or antibiotic drugs is essential.

Even when the symptoms are treated early, Encephalitis can be difficult to treat, and, despite the best efforts of medical professionals, the outcome can still be disappointing for both the patient and their family.

However, in some cases, failure to diagnose the condition quickly or failure to provide the adequate treatment is evident, and you may be able to claim compensation for loss of earnings and further health issues that may have arisen as a result.

At Forbes solicitors, we believe that everyone is entitled to adequate medical care and know how devastating it can be to deal with a serious health issue that could have easily been prevented. Our team of friendly solicitors are there for our clients at every step of the legal journey, and we understand that you want answers as to why you didn't receive a better standard of care.
