San Diego Postoperative Infections Attorney
When are postoperative infections unnecessary?
When a patient suffers from a postoperative infection following surgery it increases the length of time in the hospital and increases the medical costs as well as the patient's time away from their family and work. The extended recovery time and the threat of further complications cause additional unnecessary stress, pain and suffering to both the patient and their family. If you think your postoperative infection occurred because of a mistake or error in judgment by the doctor or hospital staff, you may be entitled to file a malpractice suit against those who were responsible for your care.
If your postoperative infection was due to a physician's mistake or improper medical care, you should contact an experienced San Diego Medical Malpractice Attorney. One of our medical malpractice lawyers will review your case history and hospital records and advise you on your legal rights. Seeking legal counsel quickly will give you a better chance of presenting the documentation and evidence required to successfully file your suit.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that in the United States alone over 500,000 people are affected by postoperative infections each year. Even though medical doctors and hospital staff are rigorously trained and seek to provide the best medical care possible to their patients, mistakes can occur. An overworked or tired doctor can miss an important detail or a nurse can administer an incorrect dosage or medication.
