Postoperative Infection Can Cause Injury or Wrongful Death
Hospital infections are common and can be caused by surgery, the use of ventilators, the use of catheters, feeding tubes and IVs. Surgical procedures and complications may result in infection. Doctors may also fail to properly diagnose or treat a postoperative infection.
Commonly seen infectious problems include:
- Surgical site infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Bloodstream infection/sepsis
While some infections are treated successfully, some cause serious issues such as wound pain, failure of the surgical procedure, need for additional surgery, organ failure or Wrongful Death.
At The Colleran Firm, we will investigate the reason for your infection. If we determine that negligence or an error was the cause, we will aggressively pursue compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.
