Meningitis is one of the most feared conditions by parents, but it can, of course, also affect adults.
Even when it is diagnosed and treated correctly, complications from meningitis can happen, and the impact that a misdiagnosis or late diagnosis can have on you or your family could be potentially devastating, resulting in a life-changing injury. Similarly, sepsis, also known as septicaemia, is a life-threatening condition and every year there are thousands of cases who are affected by it, many of which result in death. With both meningitis and sepsis, early detection is critical if long-term damage and multiple organ failures are to be avoided. These are especially critical in paediatric cases, of people who and it is important for those held responsible for infection to be held accountable.
We represent clients who have suffered all types of meningitis, whether this is viral or bacterial, and sadly have represented families where meningitis or sepsis has caused the death of a loved one. We recognise that paediatric claims are often the most disturbing and sensitive, where emotions run high, so we will put your child first when taking steps on their behalf.

Anthony Collins Solicitors provided me with a very friendly and professional service. They dealt with my case, and all the team were very sensitive to my feelings in dealing with the case. Thanks to the team they came to a settlement outside of the court, and after around two years I finally feel like some justice has been achieved for my beautiful little girl. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Rankeshwar, Ann and Richard for all their hard work.Anonymous.
