Meningitis Negligence Claims

Your meningitis negligence claims support team are ready to help fight for your justice.

Meningitis is a serious and potentially life-threatening infection affecting the membranes surrounding your brain and spinal cord, known as the meninges.

Symptoms of this infection often develop very quickly and include vomiting, fever, aversion to bright light, stiffness and classically, a rash that does not fade under the pressure of a glass. Whilst this is most common in babies, it can affect anyone, so doctors must be aware of it.

Meningitis often requires urgent treatment, and doctors must know the potential symptoms to carry out the appropriate tests and make a timely diagnosis.

Types of meningitis.

Graystons can assist those who have suffered from different types of meningitis. This includes: -

  • Viral Meningitis – This is the most common type of meningitis and least severe, sharing common symptoms with a cold or flu, e.g. Headache, cold, fatigue.

  • Bacterial meningitis – This is rarer than viral meningitis but can be very serious if not treated with antibiotics. It can cause serious brain damage and even death if not treated promptly.

  • Meningococcal septicaemia – This is also a very serious and life-threatening infection of your blood caused by a type of bacteria that causes bacterial meningitis.
