The impact of meningitis on you and your family cannot be understated. Whatever the outcome of the disease, there may be broader practical and legal issues that can cause concerns, some of which may not be immediately apparent. 

Legal advice is available on a broad range of areas, such as:

  • Disability and Education Rights
  • Clinical Negligence
  • Work and employment 
  • Inquests
  • Lasting Power of Attorney

Although we cannot formally endorse any law firm, we are pleased to provide details of the following firms, all of whom have extensive clinical negligence experience and strong reputations in the areas that are particularly relevant after meningitis.
