Pittsburgh Surgery Infection Attorney Helping Victims Of Medical Negligence And Infections
At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we represent people who have been negatively affected by strains of bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites, which were acquired or went untreated due to medical malpractice.
Our clients are patients who have been affected by a broad spectrum of infections, which were not diagnosed in time, treated ineffectively or acquired due to a health care provider's carelessness, such as:
- C. diff. infection
- Salmonella infection
- Staph infection
- E. coli infection
- MRSA infection (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)
- Nosocomial infection
These infections — especially if they occur following surgery — may develop into sepsis and ultimately cause death if not treated correctly. At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we also represent the surviving families of people killed by hospital-acquired infections.
When Is it Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence occurs when a doctor or other health care provider violates the standard of care. Some cases are considered negligence per se. When a doctor commits the surgical error of leaving a sponge or clamp in the body cavity, this error is considered negligence per se.
Some medical negligence cases, however, are more complex. Every medical complication is not necessarily medical negligence. If the complication is known by your physician and he or she has not promptly dealt with the matter, it could be considered medical malpractice. Sometimes medical malpractice occurs when hospitals fail to deal with complications as they arise.
