Make a meningitis negligence claim

Meningitis negligence claims usually involve a child or adult who has contracted meningitis but there was a delay in diagnosis or treatment of the condition. As a result of this delay the child or adult have developed life changing complications such as serious, life-long brain damage.

We understand the catastrophic effect a meningitis related brain injury can have upon the sufferer and their family and how important help with care needs and financial compensation is. We have also represented bereaved families who have tragically lost a family member through a delay in treatment or a misdiagnosis of meningitis.

Why make a meningitis negligence claim?

Making a meningitis negligence claim will ensure that early financial assistance can be secured to help the sufferer to rehabilitate, recover and rebuild their lives. For bereaved families making a claim can help to answer their questions about what happened to their loved one and why.

I am overwhelmed by the outcome in terms of the monetary value and know I should consider it as a near a 'sorry' as I am likely to get from the hospital. It will be nice to start the process of closure on the whole issue now and look towards the future for us as a family.
