Cleveland Infection Attorneys
Put Decades of Experience in Your Corner
Generally speaking, infections can occur even when appropriate preventative measures are taken. There are, however, certain situations in which a hospital or nursing home may be responsible for the development of a patient's infection. If your infection was caused by hospital or physician error or negligence, taking action begins by contacting the right lawyer.
Our team at Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP may be able to help you. We encourage you to contact our office as soon as possible.
Was My Infection Caused by Medical Malpractice?
There are times when negligence or misconduct is directly to blame for the outbreak of an infection.
For example, a healthcare institution may fail to react appropriately to an emerging outbreak of certain infections such as:
- Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, commonly referred to as MRSA
- Legionellosis, commonly referred to as Legionnaire's Disease or Legion Fever
Likewise, there are certain infections that are either preventable or easily treated with appropriate care. This includes certain infections within the bone or joint after joint replacement surgeries, as well as infections of in-dwelling catheter or IV. Even when an infection is not preventable, a healthcare provider may be liable for failing to provide timely and appropriate treatment. For example, although a C-diff infection—or Clostridium difficile—usually cannot be prevented, failure to give the patient timely, appropriate antibiotic treatment, such as Metronidazole or "Flagyl," may be a legitimate basis for a lawsuit.
Experienced, Sophisticated, Reputable
If you or your loved one has developed an infection that you believe may have been caused by medical malpractice, you need to speak with an experienced trial attorney who is willing to consult with you for free. The lawyer can help you evaluate whether the doctor violated the standard of care and whether the damages involved warrant legal action. As with any legal question, the specific facts of a situation are what determine whether you have a viable legal claim for the suffering you or your loved one endured.
