Do you need to contact Kirklees, accident claim solicitors after suffering a blood infection?
Blood disorders or infections, such as septicemia, can be very serious and require immediate treatment. As they can be fatal if left untreated, it’s vital that patients receive a quick diagnosis and begin receiving treatment as soon as possible.
In some cases, doctors will prescribe a range of antibiotics to try and treat the infection. Whilst these can be taken orally, they are normally more effective if they are prescribed intravenously as they begin to work much more quickly.
However, if antibiotics are not an appropriate form of treatment, doctors may turn to other methods. In some cases, patients will receive a number of blood transfusions in a bid to replace their blood with healthy blood.
Although it’s possible to develop a blood disorder or pick up a blood infection in a number of ways, it is possible that this type of illness can arise as a result of clinical negligence. If, for example, you were already receiving treatment for an injury or illness and you received an incorrect transfusion or were subjected to an injection using an unsanitised needle, it’s possible that you could go on to develop a blood disorder or injection of some kind.
Often, it’s not made clear to patients that they have been the victim of clinical negligence so they may merely think that they have suffered an unfortunate side effect of their original illness. However, if you suspect that you have been the victim of clinical negligence, you may want to contact Kirklees, accident claim solicitors as soon as possible.
