What is a Meningitis Negligence claim?

Meningitis is an infection of the protective membranes around the brain and spinal cord, which are called meninges. When the meninges become infected, they swell and press on the spinal cord or brain. There are many different types of meningitis; the most common varieties are bacterial and viral. Bacterial meningitis can be more life threatening and requires urgent treatment with antibiotics, whilst antibiotics are not effective against viral meningitis.

If not treated promptly and appropriately, bacterial meningitis can result in death or life changing symptoms if there is a delay with diagnosis and with starting appropriate treatment.
