  • Overview

    When can you make a compensation claim for sepsis?

    Sepsis is a condition that can occur when the body responds to an infection. Fighting the infection can cause the immune system to go into overdrive, resulting in inflammation throughout the body, shock, multiple organ failure and potentially death,  if it is not recognised early and treated promptly.

    The condition remains the primary cause of death from infection and leads to more fatalities than prostate cancer, breast cancer and HIV/AIDS combined.

    Sepsis is often diagnosed and treated too late. This is because the clinical symptoms and laboratory signs that are currently used for diagnosis are unspecific. 

    There are many circumstances where a compensation claim can be brought, including:

    • Delayed diagnosis of sepsis
    • Failure to investigate sepsis symptoms adequately
    • Failure to treat sepsis adequately or quickly enough.
       

    You can also bring a sepsis claim on behalf of a child.

    What is involved in proving medical negligence in sepsis cases?

    Proving that an earlier diagnosis would have made a difference is complicated and it is vital that the stage at which the error was made, is established.

    Surviving severe sepsis could lead to future cognitive problems

    The 13th of September 2018 marks World Sepsis Day. It was originally initiated by the Global Sepsis Alliance in 2012 with the aim of raising awareness for sepsis worldwide. Since then, a lot of progress has been made but there is still relatively little known about the condition and the symptoms to look out for. 

    Brain damage, the hidden cost of acute sepsis?

    According to the UK Sepsis Trust, there are about 150,000 cases of sepsis in the UK each year and 44,000 deaths. Another adverse outcome that is being identified in a growing number of our clinical negligence cases, involving long delays in the diagnosis of sepsis, is brain injury and cognitive deficits, causing lifelong symptoms that are sometimes subtle, but often much more profound.
