Understanding sepsis: a life-threatening condition
Sepsis is a severe and life-threatening condition that occurs when the body's response to infection leads to organ dysfunction. It can result from various medical errors, including misdiagnosis, delayed treatment, or inadequate post-operative care. If you or a loved one has suffered from sepsis due to medical malpractice or negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
If you think you have contracted sepsis during a hospital stay, contact our expert medical negligence team, who can provide support and legal advice.
Any infection can trigger Sepsis, but most commonly occurs in response to bacterial infections of the lungs, urinary tract, abdominal organs or skin and soft tissues. If sepsis is detected early enough, the outcome is extremely positive. But if left undetected, it is likely to spiral to multi-organ failure, septic shock and death.
Sepsis can happen to anyone, but where it is as a result of the negligent actions of a medical professional, you could be entitled to compensation. Our medical negligence solicitors have assisted hundreds of clients in making successful medical negligence claims, even in the most complex circumstances. To discuss your specific circumstances with our specialists, call 0800 988 8082 or complete our online enquiry form and a member of our team will get back to you right away.
Who is vulnerable to sepsis?
Everybody is potentially at risk of developing sepsis from minor infections. However, some people are more vulnerable, including people who:
- have a medical condition that weakens their immune system – such as HIV or leukaemia
- are receiving medical treatment such as chemotherapy or long-term steroids that weakens their immune system
- are very young or very old
- are pregnant
- have a long-term health condition – such as diabetes
- have just had surgery, or have wounds or injuries as a result of an accident
- are on mechanical ventilation
- have drips or catheters attached to their skin
- are genetically prone to infections
- are already in hospital because of another serious illness
The main treatment for sepsis, severe sepsis or septic shock is antibiotics. Ideally, antibiotic treatment should start within an hour of diagnosis to reduce the risk of serious complications or death. In severe cases, the antibiotics are likely to be given intravenously.
What should I do if I have contracted sepsis at hospital?
If you are looking to claim compensation for contracting sepsis during a hospital stay, you should contact a medical negligence solicitor as soon as possible. We will then be able to recover your hospital records and start the claim process.
There is a three-year time limit for making a claim for compensation, and raising legal proceedings for medical negligence resulting in physical or psychiatric injury, so it’s best to get in touch with a specialist solicitor as soon as possible.
