Sepsis is a complication of an infection, which could lead to multiple organ failure, amputation and even death if it is not diagnosed, and therefore treated quickly. You can claim for medical negligence for the mismanagement of sepsis, where you have suffered a related injury caused by an act or omission by a medical professional, including:
Where a medical professional has failed to diagnose you or diagnosed you too late
Where the sepsis has been caused by inadequate or negligent medical treatment, such as inadequate infection control.
If you feel that you have been a victim of medical negligence caused by substandard medical care in relation to sepsis, please call Smith and Graham. One of our expert solicitors will arrange an appointment to discuss your case and guide you through the claims process, every step of the way.
