MRSA Compensation

In the UK an estimated 3,000 people contract MRSA in hospitals every year, and 1,000 die as a result of this infection. If you’re suffering because of MRSA you might be able to make a claim for compensation, which should ensure you receive the medical care and support you need.

MRSA is a bacterial infection sometimes referred to as a superbug due to its resistance to treatment. The virus is harder to treat compared to other strains of bacterium and is the cause of numerous serious infections that can cause short- or long-term health problems and even death.

Usually a healthy body is able to resist MRSA and it only when the bacteria enter the bloodstream through a break in the skin that severe infections arise. Typically it is children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems who are particularly at risk from MRSA, and normally when they are in hospital.

Skin infections can include:

·        Boils

·        Styes

·        Impetigo

Once the bacteria enter the bloodstream serious infections can take hold such as:

·        Septic shock

·        Toxic shock syndrome

·        Joint issues

Fortunately most MRSA victims make a full recovery – but sadly not all. Infections caused by MRSA bacteria occasionally lead to disabilities, scarring or long-term medical care needs. If you’re suffering due to an MRSA-related infection, you may be entitled to compensation.

Why Make A Claim For MRSA Compensation

Hospitals and medical professionals have a duty of care to ensure you are well looked after throughout your stay. To help prevent the spread of MRSA infections, measures should be in place including ample available hand-wash dispensers for staff to use after every task as well as for visitors to clean their hands prior to and after each visit. If, however, such processes were not followed and you’ve been the victim of medical negligence, which has resulted in your infection, you should consider making a personal injury claim for compensation.

Medical negligence claims are complex, and MRSA claims particularly so – the difficulty lies in proving the exact cause of your illness and when/how you contracted the infection. This is why it’s vital you speak to one of our MRSA specialists who will be able to advise you on all you need to do and consider before proceeding with a claim. We know when MRSA sufferers are likely to receive compensation and when they’re not, and will work hard to understand the details of your infection in order to help you decide the best way to move forward.

If you are eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation for an MRSA infection, every factor will be taken into consideration. This includes the extent of your suffering, whether you have long-term problems or disabilities as a result, as well as any medical costs you’ve incurred and loss of income. We will work with you and advise you at every step of the way to make the process as stress-free as possible for you.
