Sepsis (also known as septicaemia or blood-poisoning) is a life-threatening condition which can kill or permanently disable, without warning, within a matter of hours.
For those diagnosed quickly and properly treated with antibiotics, the impact of this overwhelming, infective process can be stopped in its tracks. After appropriate hospital care, around 80% of patients with sepsis survive. But with sepsis claiming over 40,000 UK deaths annually – more than bowel and breast cancer combined - and leaving many of the 150,000 people permanently disabled, there has never been a more critical need to raise awareness of standards of treatment of the disease.
That’s why Boyes Turner is delighted to be working with leading sepsis charity, the UK Sepsis Trust. As one of only six specialist law firms on the UK Sepsis Trust’s referral panel, we are committed to using our medico-legal skills and experience to make a difference to the lives of disabled survivors and their families, as well as the families of sepsis sufferer who didn’t receive appropriate medical care and don’t survive.
As experts in medical negligence claims for clients with severe, permanent, disabling injury, and loss of dependency claims for the children and spouses of deceased victims of negligent care, we have seen the devastating effect that untreated sepsis has on patient survivors and bereaved families first hand. Where liability can be proven, we can secure compensation which can help provide rehabilitation, adapted housing, specialist equipment, therapies and nursing care. It can also ease the financial burden which accompanies the loss of a job or the loss of a parent and provider.
We have a uniquely integrated, multi-disciplinary approach. This enables us to help with securing the right education for a child who has special educational needs as a result of a physical or neurological injury, setting up rehabilitation and care programmes to put family and individual lives back on track, and managing, protecting and maximising the benefits of a compensation award.
As part of our commitment to reduce and alleviate the impact of sepsis, we are helping the UK Sepsis Trust to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of the disease and the importance of urgent medical treatment. The hope is that together we can help bring an end to the suffering caused by this devastating disease.
