Hospital Infection Malpractice Lawsuit Texas
Our Houston Attorneys Can Assist If You Have Developed an Infection during Your Hospital Stay
While staying in the hospital, we expect to receive the necessary medical care to make us feel better. It is an unfortunate fact that many hospitals host a variety of infections.

Devastating Results Due to a Small Error
Medical centers should be clean and hygienic areas. Sadly, this is often not the case. A report by The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated that per year, almost 2 million Americans contract an infection during their hospital stay resulting in an increase in almost $45 billion in medical expenses.
Infections that can be contracted in medical centers include:
- Bacterial infections
- Influenza (flu)
- Bloodstream infections
- Clostridium difficile (C-diff)
- Surgical site infections
Often medical professionals do not identify that a patient has contracted an infection in time. This gives the infection time to become worse, often after the person has been discharged from hospital. This leaves the person undergoing medical care for health issues that should not have occurred.
We have a firm nurse who will analyze your circumstances and our attorneys are skilled in malpractice law and are able to promptly determine how an error was made. We seek the highest compensation from the responsible parties and the relevant insurance providers.
In ensuring that the responsible medical professionals are held to account for their actions, we hope to ensure that this will put an end to others suffering from negligent mistakes as you have.
