Sepsis is your body’s extreme reaction to an infection. If your normal immune response can’t cleanse the infection, your body begins to shut down.
Left untreated, Sepsis is fatal.
The CDC warns doctors to act fast when they detect sepsis. It can leave patients with permanent internal damage and require surgery. But doctors don’t always catch the disease promptly – and their patients pay the price. If you suffered from sepsis when you were in the hospital and think the doctors should have noticed it sooner, you need a lawyer. Their negligence shouldn’t leave you suffering. Our team will hold the hospital accountable for this mistake.
Why Are People Suing?
There are more than 1,000,000 cases of Sepsis each year in the United States, and more than 258,000 Americans die from the condition. The NIH reports that sepsis causes more deaths than prostate cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS combined.
Patients with sepsis suffer from extreme bodily temperatures, rapid heart and breathing rates, weakness, and discolored skin.
It’s also possible for blood clots to form, leading to organ failure and tissue death (also known as gangrene). In severe cases, patients go into septic shock, reducing their chance for survival to below 50 percent.
If you survive sepsis, you still have a long road to recovery. Those who survive take up to 18 months to feel normal again, and 50 percent of patients suffer from post-sepsis syndrome (PSS). PSS means that even when patients make a full recovery, they can experience symptoms like insomnia, poor cognitive function, muscle or joint pain, and fatigue.
For many victims of sepsis, the serious condition affects them for the rest of their lives. What makes this painful condition even worse is knowing that your suffering was preventable. If your doctors had caught the infection early, then they could have taken steps to fight it and reduce the risk of sepsis. At the very least, they could have been aware of the risk of sepsis and been prepared to act quickly when your infection turned septic.
Sepsis isn’t supposed to happen. When it does, it means that something went wrong. The only question is, who is responsible? Sepsis is preventable with proper care. If you don’t think you received the care you deserve, Console and Associates is here to represent you.
How Much Can I Get?
Your sepsis claim is about more than your hospital bills. At Console and Associates, we consider how sepsis affects our clients’ futures and seek compensation for potential upcoming expenses. A few of factors we consider in building your claim include:
- Additional medical bills as a result of hospital negligence
- Future necessary treatment and hospital visits
- Lost wages due to past and future medical care
- Pain and suffering, including the emotional or mental toll from sepsis
Even when you survive sepsis, your bills will add up. Your quality of life may suffer, and you may not be able to do the work you once could. Every claim is different, which is why you should call and speak with an attorney to review what happened to you.
