Serious personal injury or wrongful death due to the negligence of others.

Cleveland Surgical Infection Lawyer

Any surgery has the potential to have serious, possibly lethal, side effects. When opening the body to perform a medical procedure, great care needs to be taken at every stage to minimize the potential for infection.

Apart from the possibility that some error will occur during the operation itself, the next greatest risk may be the introduction of an infectious agent into the body during the surgery. While numerous safety procedures are in place to keep the risk of infection down, post-surgical infection is one of the most common complications following surgery. While it is generally difficult to prove that an infection was due to negligence, it is extremely important for doctors and nurses caring for a patient after surgery to be on the look-out for signs and symptoms that might suggest that the patient has developed an infection. Such things as increased heart rate, increased respirations, increased or abnormal temperature and abnormal white blood cell counts indicate that a patient may be developing an infection. It is critical that treatment of a post-operative infection be timely and appropriate to avoid the worsening of the infection and the potential for organ failure and death.

When you or a loved one has suffered a post surgical infection, the toll on your health can be devastating. Further, the cost of medical treatments necessary to deal with the infection can be massive. Recovering physically and financially may require access to resources that you cannot muster on your own.

At Mishkind Kulwicki Law Co., L.P.A. , our Cleveland surgical infection attorneys can help ensure that you have what you need to be able to recover from a post-surgical infection. We are skilled at conducting thorough investigations of the quality of medical care that was administered. We will look for any departures from accepted procedures that may have led to your becoming infected and which constituted medical malpractice. We will also look to see if signs and symptoms of an infection were overlooked or ignored and whether the infection could have been treated earlier without major complications.

In addition to having exceptional investigative techniques, our attorneys are skilled litigators who are capable of creating effective courtroom strategies that have a track record of producing results for our clients. When someone tells you that an infection is a known and recognized complication from surgery, trust your instinct and contact us so we can help determine if the infection was caused by negligence and whether the infection should have been treated earlier with a better outcome.
