What is the Claims Process?


    Free Claims Assessment

    Get in touch with our expert Medical Negligence Solicitors for a free claims assessment. We’ll discuss your situation and let you know if we can help you.


    NHS Complaints Process

    We may advise you to complain directly to the NHS before taking legal action and guide you through the NHS complaints procedure.


    Independent Medical Expert

    If we take on your case, we’ll arrange for you to be assessed by an independent medical expert. They’ll prepare a medical report outlining your condition, which will help us work out how much compensation you need.


    Interim Payment

    If it’s possible, our Medical Negligence Solicitors will apply for an interim payment of compensation on your behalf. So if you have urgent care, support and rehabilitation needs, they could be met before the case settles.


    Personal Injury Trust

    When your case settles, we can give you advice on whether you need to set up a Personal Injury Trust. Having a Trust in place means that your compensation won't stop you from claiming state benefits if you need to. 

FAQs about Sepsis Claims

If you or a loved one has had Sepsis and it wasn’t identified and treated early, you may have a claim for compensation.

Sepsis, sometimes known as blood poisoning or septicaemia, is a rare but serious complication of an infection, and unless it’s treated quickly, it can lead to multiple organ failure and death.

To make a claim, we need to find out exactly what kind of mistakes happened. For example:

  • Was your condition misdiagnosed, allowing the Sepsis to develop and get worse?
  • Were the proper tests for Sepsis not carried out?
  • Was the treatment for Sepsis not started quickly enough? 
  • Did you lose a loved one because of these failures?

If any of these apply, our Medical Negligence Solicitors could help you get compensation to cover:

  • Rehabilitation
  • Loss of past and future earnings
  • Prescription charges
  • Medical fees
  • Out-of-pocket expenses.

In short, claiming compensation can help you to start rebuild your life, and get you the justice you want.

Sepsis claims can be funded through a No Win, No Fee agreement, also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement. Ask us for details and we’ll explain the different funding options to you.

Yes. You must claim either within 3 years of the date of your medical negligence or 3 years from when you became aware of the negligence - this is known as the date of knowledge.

If you can't work out the date of knowledge, assume that the 3 year period time limit runs from the date of the medical negligence.

Time limits are extended if the claim involves a Protected Person, for example someone with a mental disorder who can’t manage their affairs.

If you’re claiming on behalf of a child, you can claim at any time before they turn 18 years old. After their 18th birthday, the 3 year time limit will start to run.

The strict time limits mean you shouldn’t delay getting specialist legal advice. The earlier you get help from a Medical Negligence Solicitor, the easier it will be to get evidence to support your claim and understand how Sepsis has affected you.

Sepsis occurs when the body’s immune system starts damaging otherwise healthy tissue and organs when it’s reacting to an injury or infection.

This can reduce the blood supply to these areas and can result in septic shock, multiple organ failure, amputation and sometimes death.

Sepsis can be caused by an infection at any site in your body or contamination to the lungs, abdomen, pelvis or urinary tract.

It often appears following surgery or a long stay in hospital, and infected bed sores are a common source of Sepsis.
