Meningitis Misdiagnosis Claims

Meningitis is an infection that is fast acting. If there has been a delay in medical diagnosis, you may be entitled to compensation.

SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

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 given the wrong treatment, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

At Forbes, our expert team of solicitors understand that claiming compensation isn't necessarily about the money, but rather about getting answers and having the chance to rebuild your life despite any ongoing health issues. So, if you've sustained any health problems or injuries due to the negligence of medical professionals in dealing with your meningitis diagnosis, our team of solicitors are on hand to advise you.
