Meningococcal Meningitis

Claiming Compensation for Meningococcal Meningitis

The fact that meningococcal meningitis is the most common bacterial type of the disease in the UK doesn’t make it any less dangerous. Unless promptly diagnosed and treated, it can cause life changing complications for survivors. If someone else is at fault for you contracting the illness or not being properly treated for it, or a diagnosis was not made in a timely fashion, you should be able to claim compensation.

At Head Injury UK we have many years of experience in bringing such claims and achieving high levels of compensation for meningococcal meningitis victims. We know how crucial it is to have money for accessing the best treatment and therapies, adapting the home for accessibility and acquiring helpful equipment.  Watch our Head Injury UK video to explain more about meningitis and also encephalitis.

Our Aim: To Ensure you Receive enough Money for as Long as it Takes

The medical negligence claims solicitors in our team recognise that no compensatory sum can make up for the disaster that has overtaken you, whether you are the sufferer or the carer. Nevertheless it is needed, and it helps, so they will aim to bring you the maximum amount possible once they have got to grips with all the complicated issues involved. Some of our many medical professional contacts will assist them to do so.

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.

Higgs & Sons acted for us for 5 years until our daughters claim for personal injuries was finally settled. Ian remains a trustee of our daughters trust fund and we now look upon him as a friend.
