What is Sepsis?

What is Sepsis?

Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening condition that occurs when an infection spreads throughout the body and triggers a severe immune response. Symptoms of sepsis can include fever, chills, rapid heartbeat, and low blood pressure. If left untreated, sepsis can lead to organ failure and death.

What is a Sepsis Negligence Compensation Claim?

A sepsis negligence compensation claim is a legal claim for compensation made by someone who has suffered harm as a result of sepsis that was not diagnosed or treated properly by a healthcare professional. This can include medical expenses, loss of earnings, and pain and suffering.

Sepsis is a horrendous and often potentially life-threatening condition that can occur when the body tries to fight an infection, causing the immune system to go into overdrive and resulting in an inflammation throughout the body, along with damage to organs and tissues. If cases of sepsis are not treated quickly and effectively, the condition can quickly result in multi-organ failure and sometimes even death.

Unfortunately, 30% of reported sepsis cases in the United Kingdom each year prove to be fatal, and an independent report by the National Confidential Enquiry, identified that over than a third of these tragic patient deaths were due to incorrect diagnosis and/or delayed treatment of the sepsis.

At Forbes Solicitors, our expert team understand what a truly devastating impact sepsis can have on the lives of both the patient and their family. We also understand that sepsis negligence compensation claims are often more about getting answers and obtaining help with rehabilitation of sepsis survivors, not to mention easing the financial worries of carers or bereaved families, rather than money.

I would like to say how eternally grateful I am for the service that Lisa has given us through this devastating time of losing my mum. Lisa has been completely honest and upfront from the start with what to expect, and held our hand all the way. Whenever I needed to contact Lisa she would either answer straight away or get back to me very quickly. I do believe that Lisa is a credit to Forbes and would highly recommend her.
