Hospital Acquired Infections Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Hospitals are full of people with a variety of health issues, which is why it is so vital to stop the spread of disease through proper sanitization. One of the dangers for patients in hospitals is acquiring an infection that can cause serious health issues. Hospital acquired infections, or HAIs, do occur and can be very dangerous to the health of patients. In some cases, these infections are caused by negligence and errors made by medical professionals, which is considered medical malpractice.

Infections can occur anywhere, but hospitals should be a place to prevent these complications, not to contribute to them. Unfortunately, there are many types of bacteria in hospitals that can be transferred through contact by medical staff. If proper hygiene is not performed or instruments are not sanitized, bacteria that can cause infections can be transferred from one patient to another. When this occurs and the infection causes serious injury to the patient, the hospital may be liable for damages.

Dangers of HIAs

When a patient gets a HAI, they can be in serious danger. Infections in surgical incisions and laceration injuries or internal infections like pneumonia can impact the health of a sick patient. Those admitted to a hospital are already in poor health and are more susceptible to infection. Serious HAIs can cause septic shock, sepsis and even death. Infections can slow the healing process, requiring more time in the hospital. With severe infections, they can cause extensive damage that may undo the initial treatment. A severe infection in a joint replacement can result in failure of the procedure.

Did you get a hospital acquired infection that jeopardized your health or caused additional health issues? Did you lose a loved one that died of sepsis, septic shock or other infections that were obtained post-admittance to the hospital? Contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law to discuss your claim. You may be able to seek compensation for your injuries and losses through a medical malpractice claim for a HAI.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
