Staph And Sepsis Infections
Surgeries and other hospital procedures all involve an element of risk. One of the most frequent dangers of a hospital stay is the risk of infection. Despite recent efforts to combat this problem, patients continue to contract infections at an alarming rate.
If you or a loved one has become seriously ill as a result of a hospital-acquired infection, you may have a medical malpractice claim. Our Springfield medical malpractice attorneys can work with medical experts to review your claim and determine whether your infection was the result of hospital negligence. For a free consultation with our skilled attorneys, please call (217) 523-7742.
Protecting The Rights Of Patients
Hospital infections can be caused by improper hand washing by any member of the staff, from nurses’ aides and nurses to doctors and anesthesiologists. Numerous infections are caused by the use of ventilators, catheters and IVs. Surgical errors such as nicking the bowel may result in infection. Postoperative infections at the surgical site are also common.
We can evaluate your claim for injury, illness and wrongful death resulting from:
- Surgical site infections
- Nosocomial bacteraemia
- Urinary tract infections
We can seek compensation for all medical costs, pain and suffering, present and future lost income, and additional related needs. In wrongful death cases, we can also argue for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, loss of benefits and loss of inheritance.
