Houston Hospital Infection Attorneys
If You Acquired an Infection While In the Hospital, Our Houston Lawyers Can Help
We go into the hospital when we are sick and assume that we will be made well by surgery or in-hospital treatment. Unfortunately, hospitals themselves can be the source of many infections. Despite all of the precautions that the medical establishment takes to prevent disease, many patients get worse after entering the hospital and contracting a hospital-acquired infection. Our lawyers are here to help you if you have suffered from this negligence.
The Experienced Representation You Need To Go Up Against the Medical Establishment
Tommy Hastings and his team at Hastings Law Firm P.C. dedicate themselves to helping victims of medical malpractice in Houston. They have obtained millions of dollars in compensation through their many successes and have held members of the medical establishment accountable for the harm they inadvertently caused. Tommy is a board-certified personal injury lawyer with more than a decade of experience.
Our entire team gets to know you and your situation. We provide a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere where you can tell us what happened and how it has affected your life. All of this helps us think differently about your case. The more we understand about you and your circumstances, the more invested we become in winning on your behalf.
The Consequences of a Simple Mistake
Hospitals are considered to be some of the most sanitary places people go. Unfortunately, this is not always true. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that nearly 2 million Americans suffer from hospital-acquired infections every year, at a cost of nearly $45 billion in extra hospital care.
The Most Common Infections Acquired in Hospitals Include:
- Bacterial infections
- Influenza (flu)
- Bloodstream infections
- Clostridium difficile (C-diff)
- Surgical site infections
In many cases, doctors and nurses fail to diagnose these infections before they become a problem. Patients are sent home, where the infection festers. They are re-admitted to the hospital with a problem that could have been prevented with proper care.
Our on-staff nurse will review your situation and look for all signs of medical malpractice. Our extensive experience helps us spot these mistakes quickly and efficiently. We pursue maximum compensation from the hospital and their insurance company.
By holding the medical establishment accountable for the harm they would otherwise explain away as beyond their control, you help prevent this same harm from happening to other patients in the future.
