San Diego Medical Malpractice Attorney
Meningitis is an inflammation of the meninges, or the protective membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Meningitis can be caused by viral and bacterial infections and sometimes by other microorganisms and even certain drugs. It is a very serious condition that can sometimes result in death. Common symptoms of meningitis are:
- Sensitivity to noise and/or light
- Stiffness of the neck
If you contracted meningitis as the result of medical malpractice or failed to receive a timely or adequate diagnosis, you should contact a San Diego medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible to begin exploring your legal options.
There are some instances in which healthcare providers are actually responsible for a patient's contraction of meningitis; this can occur when unsterilized needles are used or certain drugs are administered inappropriately. Other times, wrongful death or serious injury can occur if a doctor fails to diagnose or properly treat meningitis.
