Infection & Medical Malpractice in Phoenix
Phoenix Medical Malpractice Attorney
Infection is one of the greatest risks accompanying any surgical procedure or hospital stay. Hospital staff members must be especially alert to post-operative infections because hospitals and clinics are a breeding ground for infection. Post-operative infections can lead to sepsis, organ failure,
brain injury or wrongful death. These types of infections can often have long-lasting, life-altering consequences, especially if not treated quickly and effectively.
If you believe you have suffered from a serious infection that was not properly or promptly treated, contact a Phoenix medical malpractice attorney at our office to schedule a free consultation. Many people believe that these cases are straightforward and simply attempt to negotiate with insurance companies on their own. This, however, can often have a negative result, leading to a delayed or dismissed case, or a settlement with a much lower value than desired. To ensure that your case is being taken seriously and that you will receive the proper amount of compensation, it is imperative that you work with a medical malpractice lawyer well-versed in this area of the law.
Legal Recovery in Cases of Failure to Diagnose Infection
The failure to diagnose and appropriately treat a serious or life-threatening infection can have disastrous results. Not only can a patient suffer long-term or permanent harm, but what was once a treatable condition can become fatal. If you or a loved one suffered harm as a result of the negligent failure to diagnose or promptly treat an infection, you may have a right to compensation in a medical malpractice lawsuit. If you choose to work with Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo, you will work directly with an experienced malpractice attorney. We handle all cases on a contingency basis. You pay no attorney fees unless we obtain compensation on your behalf.
