The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

MRSA

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

The latest Government figures show that in 2012, 292 people died as a result of MRSA in the UK as a whole. In Scotland alone there were 48 deaths in which MRSA was identified as the main or a contributory cause of death.

MRSA, or Meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, is a bacterial infection that is difficult to treat because it is resistant to many types of antibiotics. This means that if can be very difficult to get rid of and the initial infection may become very serious, especially in people who are already ill.

While it does occur in the community, MRSA is most likely to strike in hospital, where open wounds give it easy access into the systems of weak and vulnerable people.

MRSA Compensation Claims

If you or a loved one contracted the MRSA virus in hospital and the hospital was in any way unclean, or staff failed to follow their own infection control policies or cleanliness procedures, then you may have a claim for compensation. But it is a very complicated area.

It is very hard to prove that an MRSA infection was caused as a result of negligence rather than simply your being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Expert advice is essential.
