Negligent Abscess Care and Necrotising Fasciitis Compensation

Surprisingly, several of our clients have suffered horrific long-term problems due to necrotising fasciitis when their abscess has not received the appropriate medical attention.

Poor-quality abscess care

Without diagnosis and timely treatment, an abscess can provide a portal for bacteria to enter the body and trigger a necrotising fasciitis infection. We have worked with several clients who suffered an abscess - in the groin or near the anus or the bowel - who might have avoided this appalling and life-threatening infection if their medical professionals had provided suitable treatment.

Necrotising fasciitis is a medical emergency and any delays in diagnosis and treatment can be life-threatening. Additionally poor-quality treatment of an abscess which leads to the patient developing this appalling illness can also be regarded as negligent. A failure to provide appropriate antibiotics or a failure to drain an abscess might be regarded as substandard care.

The impact of necrotising fasciitis

This shocking infection, once it has reached the interior of the body, can spread rapidly causing the decay of the tissue it infects. The patient can be left severely disabled or may die if treatment is delayed.

The only effective treatment is debridement surgery which removes all affected tissue in order to prevent the further spread of the infection. The sooner such treatment is commenced, the better the outcome for the patient is likely to be. If diagnosis and treatment are delayed, the patient is likely to suffer more severe scarring, have to undergo more extensive debridement and risks suffering long-term disability. They also face the risk of losing their life.

A failure to treat the cause will inevitably lead to a delay in diagnosis and treatment and may justify a claim for compensation.

Making a claim for compensation

If you or a loved one are struggling with the impact of necrotising fasciitis due to poor-quality medical care, it may be suitable to make a claim for compensation. The disability which can be caused by necrotising fasciitis can leave a patient unable to work or dependant on care. The financial implications are significant.

A successful compensation claim can address these financial issues in so far as they have been caused by the negligence of medical professionals.
