New Guide to Necrotising Fasciitis and Compensation Claims

In order to support the victims of necrotising fasciitis, Glynns Solicitors has produced a new guide to medical negligence and compensation in relation to this appalling infection.

Introduction to necrotising fasciitis

Necrotising fasciitis, a fairly rare soft-tissue infection, is associated with a high mortality rate. Where its victims survive, they are, nonetheless, likely to suffer scarring, deformity and on-going physical and psychological health problems.

Prompt diagnosis and treatment in the form of emergency surgery are crucial to a positive patient outcome.

Delays in diagnosis, a misdiagnosis or a delay in treatment may all be regarded as negligent and can result in a shocking, life-changing impact for the patient. Poor-quality care of a pre-existing condition, such as an abscess, or a failure to provide prophylactic antibiotics, leading to necrotising fasciitis, may also be regarded as negligent.

Where medical negligence has contributed to the long-term problems faced by the patient and their family, it may be appropriate to make a claim for compensation.

The Glynns guide to necrotising fasciitis

Our new guide aims to provide the answers you may be asking in terms of identifying when negligence has occurred and what can be done about it.

The guide includes the following issues:

  • What is necrotising fasciitis?
  • How is necrotising fasciitis diagnosed?
  • What will happen if necrotising fasciitis is not diagnosed and treated?
  • Preventing long-term necrotising fasciitis problems
  • What can I do about negligent necrotising fasciitis care?
  • How do I make a necrotising fasciitis compensation claim?
  • Will I have to pay for a necrotising fasciitis claim?

You can download the guide by entering your details below:

Timing of a compensation claim

If you are considering whether or not to make a claim for compensation, it is also important to remember that there are legal time limits within which this can be done. If you believe that you have been the victim of medical negligence, you must initiate your claim for compensation within three years of the date of the alleged negligence.

The sooner you obtain specialist legal advice, the better.

Speak to a solicitor

Compensation claims for necrotising fasciitis can be extremely complex. A patient may suffer an array of shocking physical effects as well as trying to cope with the emotional impact and possible financial losses if employment is no longer possible.

The advice of a specialist medical negligence lawyer is crucial.
