People of any age can suffer from Meningitis and it can be a devastating illness even if it’s accurately diagnosed and treated, but our Medical Negligence Solicitors have helped many people to claim compensation after their treatment for Meningitis was delayed.
Meningitis can result in life changing injuries or even death and if doctors don’t diagnose the condition properly or give the right treatment, then you could have a Meningitis Compensation Claim.
That taking legal action can be daunting, but we’ll do all we can to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible.

Why Claim Compensation for Meningitis Mistreatment?
It’s a difficult decision to make a medical negligence claim for meningitis, but there are some good reasons to make a claim.
Meningitis can leave you with long term physical issues, that could affect your ability to work now and in the future. Your compensation can give you a financial settlement to help pay for your needs.
This could be rehabilitation, care, any medical costs such as prescription fees and any specialist adaptations you may need in your home or vehicle.
Your compensation claim could help you to feel a sense of justice and hopefully reduce the chances of future misdiagnosis of meningitis in other people.
What is the Medical Negligence Claim Process?
- Call us on 0808 278 9918 for a free claims assessment.
- We’ll tell you if you should make a formal complaint to the NHS and we’ll talk you through the process and review the outcome of your complaint
- An Independent Medical Expert will review the care you or your family member received and tell us if they think it was negligent. This will help with your claim.
- We’ll make sure you’re kept regularly updated with what’s happening with your claim.
- We’ll ask if we can get you Interim Payments of compensation before your claim settles. These can help with any urgent financial or medical needs.
- We’ll negotiate with the NHS to reach a fair and reasonable settlement. In nearly all cases, we settle out of Court, but if this isn’t possible, we will guide you through the Court process.
Is There a Time Limit on Claiming Medical Negligence Compensation?
Yes – you must start your claim within 3 years of the medical negligence. If you care claiming for a child, you can do this for them until they turn 18. After their 18th birthday, they have 3 years from their birthday to make a claim, unless they lack mental capacity. If so, the time limit is paused until they regain capacity.
How Do I Pay for a Medical Negligence Claim?
Most medical negligence claims are dealt with on a No Win, No Fee basis (also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement). So there’s no financial risk to you if you decide to claim compensation as you’ll only pay our legal fees if your claim is successful.
