How To Recover From Sepsis Or Infection Errors
Hospitals work tirelessly to maintain a sterile environment for their patients, but their efforts are not flawless. When negligent or reckless actions cause you to suffer an infection or sepsis, you should not be the one who pays to recover from your new illness.
Attorney Frank Morrissey of Morrissey Legal Group, LLC, has years of experience representing Chicagoland clients through their malpractice claims. He has the skill and experience necessary to pursue the compensation you deserve that can cover the current and future costs of your sepsis or infection consequences.
When Sepsis Is Considered Medical Malpractice
Not every infection in an Illinois hospital qualifies for a medical malpractice claim. In order for you to have a valid medical malpractice claim, you need to be able to prove that a doctor or other medical professional failed to identify, prevent or treat a condition, which then resulted in the infection or sepsis you experienced.
Whether your infection or sepsis was the result of neglect, unsanitary medical equipment or a lack of follow-up after a procedure, the consequences can still be devastating. Some illnesses and complications from these situations include:
- Organ failure
- Septic shock
- Acute respiratory distress syndrome
- Kidney failure
- Multiple organ dysfunction syndrome
By reviewing the details of your claim, Mr. Morrissey can help determine if you have grounds for a claim and what to do next.
Can You Sue A Doctor For An Infection?
In any medical malpractice claim, there need to be the four elements of malpractice present:
- The duty of care owed to you by a medical professional
- The violation of this duty
- The injuries or illness caused by this violation
- The damages that came from the illness or injury
Attorney Morrissey takes the time to gather the necessary information in your malpractice claim to prove liability however possible while you focus on your health and your condition.
