Hospital-acquired infection

It's important that you choose a medical negligence lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to deal with your compensation claim effectively.

When it comes to visiting a hospital, treatment is usually the key initiative. When a patient leaves, they hope to be fully treated of any injury or illness that they had, but unfortunately in some situations this is not always the case. Although many precautions are taken to maintain high levels of hygiene and sterilisation in a hospital environment, from time to time these initiatives are overlooked and this can lead to the contraction of a hospital acquired infection.

That’s why we offer you the complete package, handling your personal injury claim right through from start to finish, leaving you to relax and focus on what is important – improving your health.

Our team brings to the table a wealth of experience and knowledge in the field of personal injury claims, as well as an understanding of the direct needs of our clients at this difficult time. Hospital acquired infections can be particularly challenging as they can often have an incredibly debilitating effect on already existing injuries, which can leave you with more pain and aggravation in addition to a longer rehabilitation time – leaving you further out of pocket.

WHAT TYPES OF HOSPITAL ACQUIRED INFECTION CLAIMS DO WE COMMONLY DEAL WITH?

At Medical Compensation 4U, we are experienced in dealing with a wide range of personal injury claims when it comes to dealing with hospital acquired infections, some of the most common cases that we deal with include:

  • MRSA infections (methicillin–resistant Staphylococcus aureus)
  • C. Difficile infections (Clostridium difficile)
  • Enterococcal infections
  • Acinetobacter infections
  • Any general infections that you receive during your stay in a hospital.

AM I ELIGIBLE TO MAKE A CLAIM?

When it comes to making a personal injury claim it all comes down to one key word – negligence. If you believe that your injury has been induced as the result of negligence on behalf of another person, in this case a doctor or nurse whose care you have been in, then you could be eligible to make a claim.

Personal injury claims are formed on the basis that someone could have prevented your injury from happening, so if you are able to prove this then you have a solid foundation for a case. After all, if you are suffering at the negligence of another person, you shouldn’t have to foot the bill for what could be a lengthy and expensive rehabilitation process.
