Infections

The need for specialist advice:

It is upsetting enough to see a loved one in hospital, particularly if they are frail or elderly. It is even more upsetting to discover they have suffered even more due to not being cared for properly.

Sadly, it is also all too common for patients to have the added burden of a hospital-acquired infection or problem, such as MRSA and C-Difficile and pressure sores.

If you or a loved one has contracted an infection while in hospital, you will already know what an ordeal it can be and may wish to pursue compensation for their suffering as well as your own. However, this a complex field of law and expert advice should be taken at the outset.

Let our experience make yours that much easier:

At Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall our team of experienced specialists will ensure you receive the highest level of compensation.
