Take action if you suffer an infection after a surgical procedure

In a previous blog post, we discussed the fact that infections at the site of surgical incision are very serious. If you recall, we discussed how the infection can go deep into the tissue surrounding the incision. We know that you didn't go through a surgery expecting to end up with an infection. If that infection was caused by lax medical care or improper postoperative care, you might decide to seek compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

The fact is that medical professionals should know how to handle patient care after a surgery. The expectation can't fall on the patient unless the patient is properly trained to care for the surgical site. If you had surgery and suffered an infection, we can help you determine what options you have for seeking compensation.

Some infections are worse than others. One type of infection that is particularly troubling is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. This type of infection, which is more commonly known as MRSA, can result in hospital stays and the need for intravenous antibiotics. In some cases, additional surgical intervention might also be needed. We know that having to go through that type of intensive treatment can negatively impact your life.

At Phillips & Faldowski, PC, when we take on your case, we look at the evidence to determine how to handle your claim. We have to determine who to hold accountable and the total amount of compensation that you should seek. Once we have done those things, we can then proceed with filing your claim for compensation for the harm you suffered.
