Surgery Negligence and Necrotising Fasciitis Compensation

If medical negligence during a surgical procedure has allowed you or a loved one to develop the appalling infection, necrotising fasciitis, contact Glynns Solicitors to discuss the suitability of making a claim for compensation.

A rapid and deadly infection

Necrotising fasciitis is, thankfully, a rare infection. It can occasionally develop, however, following surgery and, in order to minimise this risk, scrupulous care is necessary. If you or a loved one are facing the on-going impact of this horrific illness due to poor-quality medical care, it may be appropriate to make a claim for compensation.

Necrotising fasciitis is caused when bacteria reaches the body's deep, soft tissue, often in the abdomen or the limbs. This is most likely to occur if an injury or wound to the skin allows bacteria to access the vulnerable regions of the body.

Surgery and necrotising fasciitis

Inevitably certain surgical procedures can put a patient at risk of infection. This could include procedures such as a hysterectomy, bowel surgery, or a caesarean section.

In order to reduce the risk it is essential that those patients who are considered to be at risk are given prophylactic antibiotics prior to the procedure. A failure to do so may be regarded as negligent medical care.

All patients should be closely monitored following their surgical procedure for any signs or symptoms of infection and any evidence to suggest that the patient may be developing an infection should receive prompt specialist attention.

Necrotising fasciitis is an extremely fast-moving infection and a failure by medical professionals to suspect the presence of this appalling illness can threaten the patient's life within days.

Medical negligence

A failure to investigate symptoms, a failure to diagnose and a delay in initiating treatment may all be regarded as negligent.

Should the patient survive, the long-term symptoms can be devastating and disabling, restricting a person's quality of life, causing significant emotional trauma and restricting their capacity to work.

If you or a loved one are facing the impact of necrotising fasciitis due to poor-quality medical care, contact Glynns Solicitors.

We have supported numerous clients who have pursued successful claims for the impact and financial losses associated with the devastation of necrotising fasciitis caused by delays in medical attention or a failure to administer antibiotics prior to surgery.
