If you think you have a case to make a compensation claim in Pavenham, then it could be for any number of reasons. Perhaps you were involved in an accident for which you were in no way responsible, or perhaps you have recently been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease. You may have had a bout of food poisoning or had MRSA after being in hospital. Did you know that you can make a compensation claim in Pavenham for any illness such as the two just mentioned, which were caused by negligence on the part of another person?

Hospitals and MRSA
The health service is coping with MRSA much more swiftly that before as staff have been trained in recognising the symptoms caused by the staphylococcus aureus bacteria which causes the infection. Unfortunately, it is one of the Superbugs which can resist some conventional antibiotics. It is most prevalent in nursing homes and hospitals (then it is called because it can get into the body through a break in the skin (perhaps one caused by an intravenous drip or a surgical wound) and can cause blood-poisoning or endocarditis which is an infection in the inner lining of the heart. People are now routinely screened for MRSA as they are admitted to hospital and staff are more aware of the infection, so it is less likely these days that you will contract healthcare associated MRSA (HA-MRSA).
However, if you do contract this infection after a stay in a hospital you can claim personal injury compensation for it, as it may be caused by the negligence of the staff.
