Beware of infections after a surgery

Surgical procedures are sometimes necessary, but they don't come without risks. One of the risks that comes with these procedures is infection. Typically, an infection of a surgical site will occur within 30 days. The chance of this happening is anywhere from 1 to 3 percent, depending on the circumstances.

Wrongful death claims aren't just about money

A loved one's death is always hard to handle. When that death comes from issues with the medical care that your loved one received, the difficulty might be intensified. In these cases, you might opt to pursue a wrongful death claim in an effort to hold the person accountable for their actions. We can help you to explore this option and move forward with it.

Did your surgery put you at risk for sepsis?

Hearing that you needed surgery may have been daunting enough, but when your doctor described the potential risks associated with the procedure, you may have dismissed infection as a minor threat when compared to the others. Instead, you may have chosen to rely on the surgical team and those in charge of your post-operative care to manage the risk of infection.

There are many different things that can come up in a wrongful death lawsuit. One of these is that it might be possible to resolve the case through a settlement that happens before the case goes to a civil jury trial. In these cases, you might be able to get the compensation that your loved one's death deserves without having as much of a delay or having to deal with the trial.
