Pennsylvania Sepsis Malpractice Attorneys
Sepsis can occur in patients of all ages, and with a proper diagnosis early on can usually be treated with relative ease. A septic patient is often one who is fighting a serious blood infection, and symptoms can often be mistaken by a doctor who doesn’t perform a thorough exam as the seasonal or swine flu or other common illness. As a result of this kind of malpractice and negligence, people too often suffer needlessly from septic shock, organ failure and even wrongful death.
From our North Pittsburgh area offices, our attorneys at Dallas W. Hartman, P.C., represent clients across Pennsylvania in medical malpractice and infection misdiagnosis cases. We are veteran lawyers who have a proven record of success and a proud reputation of client service to help your family get answers and get compensation.
Doctor and Hospital Negligence Cases
- Delayed diagnosis
- Failure to recognize warning signs of sepsis
- Improper or insufficient treatment of infection
- Hospital negligence
- Post-operative negligence
- Failure of hospitals to treat a known source of infection
- Improper hygiene
Even the initial misdiagnosis of infection may be a case of malpractice if you sought treatment or the infection should have been recognized during an exam, but if a physician or hospital continues to fail to recognize a serious septic event, then you have a right to hold negligent doctors accountable for the additional pain and suffering you suffered.
