We go to the hospital during our most vulnerable times — when we are facing serious illness, injury or death. But hospitals themselves can have their own risks, and improper care or medical negligence can lead to severe inflammation or infection also known as sepsis.
Sepsis occurs when bacteria gets into your bloodstream, causing your body to enter an inflammatory phase known assystemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) or septic shock.
Wilt & Klausing, PLLC, holds its attorneys to a higher standard — and we believe in holding our doctors and medical professionals to that same standard. We provide trusted counsel and vigorous advocacy when you or your loved one is injured as a result of medical malpractice in Kentucky.
Did You Suffer From Sepsis Due To Medical Negligence?
Virtually any bacterial infection in the body can lead to septic shock without proper treatment. Sepsis may occur as a result of the negligent or improper care from your medical professional, like in instances such as:
- Your doctor failed to diagnose your infection, causing it to spread into your bloodstream.
- You were delayed treatment, were given the wrong treatment or were denied treatment altogether.
- The initial infection was a result of a surgical error or another negligent act from your medical provider.
Sepsis is a potentially deadly condition, and we will do everything in our power to find justice and closure when a doctor’s or hospital’s actions cause in septic shock for you or a loved one.
