Making a Claim for Necrotising Fasciitis

Necrotising fasciitis is a virulent, bacterial infection which can destroy the body's deep soft tissue rapidly, threatening the patient's major organs and their life.

The impact of medical delays

Any delay in diagnosis and treatment is likely to mean that the infection will spread more widely through the body. Not only does this increase the likelihood that the patient will suffer greater internal damage but it also means that they will need more extensive surgery which, in itself, can be devastatingly destructive to the body. Of course, it also increases the likelihood that the patient will die from the infection.

Diagnosing necrotising fasciitis

Necrotising fasciitis is a medical emergency. Any suspicion that a patient is developing this shocking infection should prompt an immediate response. The sooner treatment is commenced, the less the patient is likely to suffer.

Patients who have recently undergone a surgical procedure or who have suffered a cut to the skin, however small, should be treated with extreme caution if they start to present the possible symptoms of necrotising fasciitis:

  • Intense pain in the region of a cut or wound
  • Redness and swelling in the same area
  • Tenderness in the same area
  • The patient may also be exhibiting symptoms of infection such as a high temperature and a fast heartbeat


A failure to respond promptly to a patient's symptoms, resulting in an unnecessary and debilitating outcome for the patient, may be considered to have been negligent.

A successful compensation claim can help to cope with the life-changing impact of a necrotising fasciitis infection.

Where your long-term outcome has been worsened significantly by negligent delays in your diagnosis and treatment, a successful claim can provide recompense for the losses associated with the negligence.

You may be finding it difficult or impossible to work. You may require help in daily tasks. A successful claim can compensate for the financial impact of such effects.
