Michigan Post Surgical Infection Attorney
Often, post surgery infections are a result of doctors and hospitals neglecting to properly follow up or monitor a patient’s condition. Failing to monitor vitals or administer the necessary and proper medication can result in severe complications that can be life threatening for the patient. If you have lost a loved one in Michigan due to a post surgical infection, you may have a potential wrongful death lawsuit. Contact our lawyers today for more information.
Post surgical complications can include:
- Internal Bleeding
- Infection due to perforated bowel
- Infection due to surgical instruments being left inside patient
At Christopher Trainor & Associates, we work closely with medical experts and investigators when it comes to exposing doctor and hospital negligence and its role in post surgical infections and other complications that can result after surgery if proper precautions by medical professionals are not taken. Medical charts and staffing reports are used to create a timeline regarding the patient, such as when they were checked on, how often, for how long and by whom. Breakdowns in communication and other signs of negligence can be exposed when we cross reference testimony with what the medical records indicate.
In many circumstances, post surgical infection or other complications can lead to short-term disability and problems that require even more medical treatment. Monetary compensation may be awarded to cover the cost of pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and in some cases, punitive damages.
