Sepsis and Infection Claims

Sepsis and Infection Claims Solicitors

Sepsis is a rare but serious condition, caused by the way the body responds to germs and infection. If sepsis is identified early then it can be treated with antibiotics BUT serious cases will result in admission to ICU and if untreated, can lead to death.

Sepsis symptoms include

  • Temperature
  • Breathlessness
  • Slurring speech
  • No passing of urine
  • Mottled skin or discolouration in skin tone

Sepsis is often diagnosed using simple monitoring of temperature, heart rate and breathing rate. Blood tests can also test for sepsis indicators.

 

Making a Sepsis Compensation Claim

Sadly sepsis kills more people in the UK, than those that die of cancer. Babies and the elderly are particularly at risk. Around 100,000 people are admitted to hospital each year with sepsis and over 35,000 sadly die each year.

The Sepsis Trust has worked hard to raise awareness in hospitals and care homes about Sepsis and have established the Sepsis 6 guidelines, consisting of three diagnostic steps and three therapeutic steps.

Unfortunately, some people are still not having their condition diagnosed quickly or are suffering from poor treatment. The delayed diagnosis or poor treatment of Sepsis can lead to the need to specialist and sometimes costly care with families left feeling the financial burden of medical mistakes.
