WERE YOU SERIOUSLY INJURED AS A RESULT OF A HOSPITAL-ACQUIRED INFECTION FOLLOWING YOUR SURGERY?
Healthcare-associated infections are far too common in the United States. Approximately five to ten percent of hospital patients contract a preventable infection and approximately 100,000 die each year as a result, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). If you developed a serious infection such as MRSA, sepsis or a deep joint infection following a surgery where a surgical warming blanket was used, please call for your free, no-obligation initial legal consultation.
