Infectious Disease Claims

Infectious diseases can cause devastating life-long injuries if they are not promptly diagnosed and treated.

More about Infectious Disease Claims

Forbes Solicitors' infectious disease claims solicitors offer expert legal advice to individuals who have suffered as a result of receiving an infectious disease. Our infectious disease claims lawyers can assist with a range of issues, including misdiagnosis, delayed treatment, and inadequate monitoring.

If contracted, infectious diseases can cause devastating life-long injuries if they are not promptly diagnosed and treated, especially in young children, babies or more vulnerable adults. Many of these infectious diseases are easily avoidable with adequate medical care, so if you, or anyone in your family, have suffered from an infectious disease, it's very normal to have some questions about how it happened. In many cases, sub-standard medical care can lead to the spread of infectious diseases; so, if you or a member of your family has suffered unnecessarily, due to medical negligence, you may be entitled to claim compensation for any injuries sustained. At Forbes, our expert team of medical negligence solicitors can provide legal advice in a range of infectious disease and injury compensation claims, including:

  • Meningitis

  • Tuberculosis

  • Herpes simplex virus

  • Staph aureus

  • Malaria

  • Septicaemia

  • Encephalitis

  • Hospital acquired diseases

  • Kawasaki Disease

  • Smallpox

  • Measles.

John Bennett at Forbes has been patient, supportive and understanding. From the outset I felt that my case was in safe hands. Throughout the process I have found that John is happy to explain terminology and procedures so that I have felt reassured and comfortable.
