MRSA Infection Claims
Methycillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) can cause a number of infections if it enters the body. Generally MRSA affects hospital patients, in particular those that have undergone surgery or have a weak immune system. An infection can be caused when the bacteria enters a person’s system, for example through a drip site or wound. The type of infection caused can vary, from abscesses or septic wounds to life threatening infections of the bloodstream.
If you, or a member of your family has contracted MRSA during a stay in hospital, and you believe that this disease might have been caused because of the hospital’s clinical negligence, then you may be entitled to bring a personal injuries claim for compensation.
At Healy O’Connor we have extensive experience in dealing with all areas of personal injury. We will review your case and look at your hospital records in order to assess whether the hospital breached its duty of care and provide specialist claim advice, assistance and guidance in helping you to pursue your personal injuries claim to achieve the best possible outcome.

Limitation Period By law, a claim for compensation must commence within two years from the date when the incident occurred or when the person became aware that they had suffered the injury. However due to the complexity of the issues involved it is advisable to contact a Solicitor as soon as possible after the incident.
