Omaha Hospital Infections Attorney

Making the Medical Profession Safer

People go to their doctors to get medical help. When we visit a doctor, nurse, surgeon or other medical professional, it is because we want to get healthy. When a visit to the doctor results in greater illness, it is nothing short of tragic. Medical professionals and health care facilities are responsible to compensate those who have suffered infections and other illnesses due to their negligence.

At Watson & Carroll PC LLO, we represent clients throughout Nebraska in medical malpractice claims, including hospital infections. With more than 30 years of experience, our Omaha hospital infections lawyers will take the time to understand your case and help you through every step of the legal process. Our attorneys will provide you with strategic, comprehensive legal solutions and personalized service.

Causes of Hospital Infections

Most cases of infections in hospitals come as a result of inadequate sterilization. Since infections are caused by bacteria, and sterilization is the technique used for removing these bacteria, even a small break in the sterilization process can lead to staph infections and other infections.

Another common cause is misdiagnosis. In many cases, a doctor will see a cut, drainage or other problems and not take the necessary steps to prevent an infection, or fail to diagnose an existing infection. This can allow the infection to grow and spread, causing many worse problems.

An incorrect dose, the wrong duration of a medication, or a wrong antibiotic prescription can also lead to infections.

Regardless of the specific cause of the hospital infection you have contracted, it is important to talk with an experienced lawyer from our firm. We will look at the facts surrounding your infection to determine whether you have a viable case. If so, we will work with you at every stage of the legal process to protect your interests and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
